This series showcases the wonderful parks, reserves and bushland of the Hills District and western Sydney.

It mixes exercise - at whatever pace you like (walk, jog or run) - with a simple navigational challenge. If you can read a street directory you can do it! It's a great way to explore a suburb.

You can go solo, with a buddy or in a small group (friends or family members).

Beginners are most welcome and will receive basic instruction.

Start times: you may start any time between 9.30-11am.

All events will suit newcomers as well as experienced orienteers.

Please ensure you return by 12pm as we start packing up then.

Format: you have the choice of 4 courses:

1. Long line - up to 5.5km - minimise streets.

2. Short line - up to 2.7km - no street crossings.

3. Very Easy - up to 1.0km - mainly for juniors.

4. Score course - get as many controls as you can in any order in 45 minutes.
26 check points each worth 10 points - max 260 points

Mapper's notes:
Horse jumps may have been moved since the last field check (jumps are
mapped as short walls - black lines). Very dark green areas are usually
blackberries. Most paved bike tracks have a mowed edge.
Many tracks that were previously maintained and kept mowed by the
park's management are now indistinct tracks or overgrown with long grass
but passable.

SportIdent electronic timing will be used at all events.

Pre-entry in Eventor is highly preferred although some entry on the day will be available.
