Event location: -34.936699, 138.617670
Parking from the corner of East Tce and South Tce on Beaumont Rd. The assembly area (for the start/finish) will be located next to the South Tce Croquet Club in an open grassy area. Look for the orienteering flags/signs to direct you to the assembly area.
You can start your course anytime between 11:00am-12:30pm. The courses will close at 1:30pm so please ensure you are back at the finish by then.
Once you finish your course, head to the 'finish' table to get your time.
Results will be posted on the Orienteering South Australia Facebook page.
There are four courses available, plus a 'String Course' next to the assembly area for younger children. The navigation difficulty and distances for the courses are as below:
- Course 1: Hard + Sprint - 3.4km
- Course 2: Hard - 2.7km
- Course 3: Moderate - 2.1km
- Course 4: Easy - 1.7km
These distances are measured as straight lines on the map, so you will travel a bit further than is listed. To register, simply select the ticket for the course you would like to do. There will be a map printed per ticket 'bought'.
If you would like some help getting started there will be people to assist and explain at the assembly area.
What to bring/wear:
Wear comfortable walking/running clothes and shoes. Bring you own water as required and a picnic lunch if you wish to stay in the park afterwards (see 'Other Information'). If you own a compass, feel free to bring it too.
Between 12- 1pm there will be a nearby coffee cart and BYO picnic lunch in conjunction with the 'Intriguing Trail' Nature Festival event. Feel free to stay after your run and join in with the picnic in the park. At 1:00pm there will be a tree planting ceremony with a historical twist: a visit from a horse and carriage, so stick around if you wish to join in!
