Orienteering is lower-risk than indoor, contact or team sports. However, in line with new Orienteering Australia guidelines, social distancing pre- and post- event is encouraged. Unfortunately, this means we won't be able to provide on-site results, or communal water or food. We encourage you to bring your own hand sanitiser, and remind you to avoid touching your face. We will however provide sanitiser at Rego and Finish.
DO NOT COME if unwell, or in high-risk categories. And no hugging, kissing or handshakes with friends, enemies and strangers!
OTHERWISE, do come, enjoy the healthy outdoors while you still can!

Choice of 4
Easy: 1.5-2km No road crossings and suitable for beginners. Restricted to Park 20 (Kurranga/Blue Gum Park)

All courses are sprint format. Lengths are straight line. Running distances will be a little longer.

Note: The Short, Medium and Long course will be in both Park 20 and 21. There will be a mandatory non-timed crossing at the northern end of Peacock Rd (extension of King William).

Toilets and plenty of food, coffee and drink at TreeClimb Café. For TreeClimb information: https://treeclimb.com.au/

Valuable spot prizes for lucky participants (since we can't have free food).

Discounted Sprint Series fees apply ($10 adults, $5 juniors and sub-junior free), so bring some friends along! Non-members will pay same rates as members for this event. The Easy course is $5 for Adults.

Beginners welcome, instruction provided.
NEWCOMERS: Don't be afraid to ask if unsure, esp. from person wearing an 'Ask Me' fluoro vest.
REGULARS: Do approach unfamiliar faces, esp. if they look a bit lost. Help them read the map, ask how they went afterwards. Who knows, they may end up joining YOUR Club!

Please note that the parklands are a shared facility. The courses cross ovals (which are currently in use by cricket clubs), around the hockey and tennis courts, the BMX tracks, and the petanque courts. Please respect other users. Do not cross areas marked as out of bounds.
