SI Numbers Please check that you current SI number is recorded in each event as the start list is uploaded. If yours needs changing please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. listing all events (including school Events) that you or a member of your family have entered.

Event Directions

From Renmark (3 - 3½ hours from Adelaide via the Sturt Highway): Take the continuation of the Sturt Highway from near the centre of Renmark, signposted to Paringa and Mildura. 500m after crossing the River Murray (on the historic Paringa lifting bridge), turn left in the centre of Paringa onto Murtho Road. Follow this road for 12.5km and turn left into Headings Road. After 1km of bitumen the road becomes gravel. This section is corrugated, so drive slowly and look out for orienteers crossing the road. After 2.5km of gravel you will reach the assembly and parking area (more details provided below).

From Mildura: In Paringa turn right onto Murtho Road (600m after the 50kph signs). Follow directions as above.

The walk to the start is 900 m partly uphill from the Arena

M/W10N Event Class

Shadowing is permitted on this course but the “shadow” who is a competitor must have already completed their course.   Novices use a punch start and start after the M/W10A starters, and do not have an allocated start time.

Parents who are shadowing their children, please go to the start as soon as possible after the last start on the M/W10A and M/W12A starters (refer to the start lists).

Shadowing of juniors by an adult is not permitted on any other course. If you think your child needs shadowing, then please change them to the Novice course.

Split Start Requests

For parents with young children who have requested split times, start times will be allocated with  one earlier start and one later start as far as possible. However if you can’t meet these times please go the late start lane to explain your circumstances and you will be able to start with a Start Unit.

For event helpers (e.g. Start and Finish) – you have been allocated start times, however you are able to have early or later starts as required with a start unit.

WRE Start Times

As the carnival has 3 World Ranking events, the guidelines permit the start draw to not always follow event rankings.  For this event, the draw has been randomised.
