Thank you to our event partners Townsville City Council, Tourism Events Qld, Elements NQ, Glencore, CQ University & Struddys.

?Location: Jezzine Barracks (NE End of Kennedy Parade) North Ward, Townsville
? Date: Sunday 12 April 2020

What's the Race : A less than traditional orienteering score event where competitors will collect as many checkpoints as they can in 60-minutes. Checkpoints will be of differing values depending upon their degree of difficulty to find and in true TTOC-style, there will be our random bonus points up for grabs. A challenging adventure with an Amazing Race vibe; suitable for athletes, social walkers / runners and families. Just remember that a “team” means you all stay together the whole time, individual means you go it alone!
