 The program of events will be open at midday with the heats for place in the National League A and B Finals on a new 1:5000 map of the northern most area of Red Hill Nature Reserve.  The senior and junior elite classes will be merged and there will be two heats each for Men and Women. The qualifiers for the A finals will be less than half the total number of competitors.  The Finals will be staged on a new 1:3000 map of Canberra Girls Grammar School starting at around 3.00 pm.

The ACT Sprint Distance Championships courses for other classes will be held on the 1:3000 map of Canberra Girls Grammar School with first starts from 1.00 pm.  All maps will be withheld until after the last start in the National League Finals.
