FREE “Come and Try It” (and Pre-Easter training) event - Booragul
This come and try it event is generously sponsored by Lake Macquarie City as part of the “Women in Sport” festival. We welcome anyone to come along and try orienteering especially those that have never done so in the past. The navigation is relatively easy with the Mini and Short courses suitable for first-timers, families and novices.

If you are a regular orienteer (and not participating in the concurrent MTBO event) come along for a free training run which might be needed as the State Leagues and Easter carnival are very nearly upon us.
