SC-ORE School Orienteering – wild running junior orienteers know how to navigate

Nerves are nothing for the keen athlete, and this sure was the case today at Garran Primary School. With a lineup of more than 140 kids pumped for the challenge, the Garran campus didn’t disappoint!

Last week was 800m and 9 controls, this week the kids stretched out to 900m and 11 controls.

Holding firm on the concentration factor the 37 teams pushed through, achieving some jubilant scenes.

The added complexity through the buildings meant the kids had to slow down and read their maps a bit more.

Check out the results from the event at Garran Primary School here.

SC-ORE – OACT’s school based school safe “starter pack” challenge, means all ACT junior orienteers know how to relay, the sport for life!
