Sprint2

Training and competition events are available from Friday 21 – Sunday 23rd Feb as the Adelaide Sprint Camp organized by our coach in residence Evalin Brautigam. Adelaide Sprint Camp will be a weekend full of orienteering training and races. We invite everyone to come out for all or part of the weekend. There is a lot happening so if you can’t do it all, then just sign up for the races. This still lets you compete for prizes. The highlight of the weekend is the Knock-out sprint on Sunday which is a series of 4 short races where you shuffle up or down groups depending on how you place. We will also be using SI-Air+ for all the races during the weekend, and even if you don’t have one you will have the chance to rent one for free. Full details in the event bulletin here, with the program as follows:

Friday 21- AM – Training 1 and 2 at Flinders University

Friday 21 – Evening – Final event in the Snap Sprint Series at Stirling

Saturday – AM – Training – Botanic Gardens

Saturday – Early PM – Training – Eastern Adelaide CBD
