Orienteering WA Ultra Sprint Event

Faulkner Park, Progress Way, Cloverdale

 

Come and give orienteering a go.

 

Before our Metro series starts we are running an ultra-sprint at the beautiful grounds of Faulkner Park in Belmont on the morning of Saturday October 21.

Orienteering example map

The ultra-sprint is a series of three, short sprint type races where your cumulative times add up to determine the fastest over the course but there is a twist - there are no clues, no control numbers on the map and there will be many controls within visible sight of each other, perhaps even on opposite sides of the same feature! The trick is to read the map carefully and punch the correct control on your course. As an added bonus you cannot record a mispunch. However, a missed control will instead incur a time penalty.

An example orienteering map is shown for your information.

Registering your interest on Eventor does not mean you have to attend but will assist with map numbers and will reduce queue times.
