Waterfalls and Rocks Await at Twilight #2

Waterfalls and Rocks Await at Twilight #2

The second event of the 2020-21 Runner’s Shop Twilight Series will be at Stromlo West this Wednesday. All the event details are available here.

The challenging rocky terrain of the old Arachnicopia map is sure to provide a stark contrast to the speed of last week’s Stirling Park sprint, the Twilight Series scores from that event are available here.

Don’t forget that live results are available at Twilight Series events. As soon as you have downloaded you can view your result here, or via the free LiveOL app, available for iOS and Android.

Entry to the Twilight Series season pass is still available here, or you can enter the individual event here.

Season pass holders can change their course/class for this week’s event by visiting the season pass Eventor page and changing their entry before 5pm Tuesday.

Courses

  • Moderate 1: 5.6km, 175m climb
  • Moderate 2: 3.5km, 100m climb
  • Easy: 2.9km, 80m climb
  • Very Easy: 1.8km, 55m climb

There is also a Moderate 1 Training Map for more advanced navigators looking to further improve their skills.

The Moderate 1 course is more navigationally challenging than often seen at Twilight events. It also encounters more physical terrain when compared to the Moderate 2 course. For competitors unsure about which course to enter, it is advised to do Moderate 2. The Moderate 2 course has been set to allow competitors of many physical and navigational abilities to enjoy.

Terrain

Due to recent weather, the terrain will be particularly soggy, particularly around gullies and marshes.
The recent rain has created a beautiful waterfall on the Moderate 1 course, but competitors on all courses should be careful around slippery rocks while enjoying the terrain. Additionally, the wet spring has allowed for the prolific growth of many tall weeds, so full body cover is recommended. This particularly affects competitors on the Moderate 1 course.
