West Sydney Orienteering Series #1

West Sydney Orienteering Series #1
Event Date: 2023-12-10
Club: Western and Hills
Venue: Darkes Common (BF map).
Assembly: Lapstone Oval, Explorers Rd Lapstone.

This series showcases the wonderful parks, reserves and bushland of the Hills District and western Sydney.

It mixes exercise - at whatever pace you like (walk, jog or run) - with a simple navigational challenge. If you can read a street directory you can do it! It's a great way to explore a suburb.

You can go solo, with a buddy or in a small group (friends or family members).

Beginners are most welcome and will receive basic instruction.

Start times: you may start any time between 9.30-11am.

All events will suit newcomers as well as experienced orienteers.

Please ensure you return by 12pm as we start packing up then.

Format: you have the choice of 4 courses:

1. Long line - up to 6km - minimise streets.

2. Medium line - up to 4km - minimise streets.

3. Short line - up to 2km - mainly for juniors.
(The track network on the map is very complicated. Younger and inexperienced juniors will require supervision on the short course.)

4. Score course - get as many controls as you can in any order in 45 minutes.

SportIdent electronic timing will be used at all events.

Pre-entry in Eventor is highly preferred although some entry on the day will be available.
