Course Setter’s Notes

Vegetation: mix of native forest, plantation pine and a broad open valley area.
Terrain: relatively flat in W, steeper section in NE mostly impacting the Hard 1 and 2 courses.
Erosion gullies: most Hard courses will visit an area of erosion gullies that follow a creek line.
Mountain bike tracks: numerous throughout, some mapped, some not mapped, unreliable for navigation (even mapped ones!). Very Easy course follows a taped mountain bike track for about 300 m.
Runnability: very good through the native forest and open areas, slower through the pines.
Fence crossings: most courses cross the closed off section of the old Sparrow Hill Road. The boundary fence is generally crossable but easiest at two places where trees have fallen across the fence. These are marked on the map as (non-mandatory) crossing points and are easy to see when approaching the fence.
