Bush Sprint Challenges In-Store at Snowgums Twilight

Bush Sprint Challenges In-Store at Snowgums Twilight

Due to nature park access restrictions the location of this week’s twilight event has changed from what was originally advertised. The event will be held at Aranda Snowgums, accessed via the Black Mountain Reserve car park near Glenloch Interchange. See the event information page for details.

Abominable course setters Ingrid and John Shelton-Agar have done a fine job of setting new bush-sprint style courses at short notice. The following courses will be available:

  • Very Easy, 1.4km
  • Easy, 2.4km
  • Moderate 2, 2.4km
  • Moderate 1, 3.6km
  • Plus a special training map for the Moderate 1 course.

The map scale is 1:5000 with a 2.5m contour interval.
The Moderate 1, 2, and training map courses will have a standard orienteering start. These courses/maps will not be on display before competitors start, these maps will be passed to participants at the start.

This is the penultimate opportunity for competitors to score point in the 2019-20 Runners Shop Twilight Series before the series’ summer hiatus. Progress scores can be viewed here.
