Something a little different this week.

We are running a "sprint course" at Girls/Boys high.This is called a "sprint" map, however, this simply means the controls are closer together and total course length is under 2km. It is quite OK to jog or walk the maps.

There will be 2 maps, run time about 15 min per map.It is highly recommended that these maps are run as individuals, not in groups as in the pathfinding series. Don't worry you can't get lost, both maps are within the school grounds and will be great fun!

The plan is to run one map, then when finished, return to the start and run the second map. Meeting place will WGHS, Lupton Ave, just north of the school office on the grass inside the school fence.

Controls will be the standard orienteering controls and punch cards will be used to record the course.
Each Control is to be punched in numerical order as per map.

Starts will be staggered at 1-2 min intervals, 2 starters each minute but running different map courses. Don't be tempted to follow because others may be on a totally different map !.

There are also 3 divisions.
Novice - Primary/Intermediate school children
Elite - High school children
Masters - Old people

The cost per map will be $4.
