START TIMES: Between 5pm and 6:30pm

COURSE CLOSURE: 7:10pm.
(Finish after 7:10pm and you risk being disqualified for failing to finish the course in the allowed time)
This closure time is to enable us to collect controls before it gets dark. Please choose your start time so that you complete your chosen course by 7:10pm

COURSES: Long (3.8 km 26 controls), Short (2.4km 16 controls) and Novice (0.8 km 7 controls). These are straight line lengths between controls, so actual course distance will be longer, depending on route choice. The novice course crosses several low traffic suburban streets - we recommend parents shadow young competitors on this course.

FACILITIES: Toilets and water.

COURSE PLANNERS NOTES:
The Long Course only has a map change (turn the map over for the other half of the course).

SPECIAL MAP SYMBOL: black cross – table/seat.

Respect others’ use of the playing fields and detour around any sport activities.

Bring insect repellent to protect from mosquitoes.

This is a Sport Ident (SI) event. There is an SI unit attached to each control, so you will need to bring your SI stick or P-card. There are 26 controls on the long course, so a SI stick is needed for this event. The short and novice courses have under 20 controls so both SI sticks and P-cards are suitable. Cards and sticks are available for hire at the event.
