February is Sprint Orienteering month

on .

The Friday evening orienteering events shift in February to the shorter format of “Sprint Orienteering”. The events have shorter courses on more complex map areas, however an Easy course is available for newcomers. Each event has two technical courses, usually around 2 km and 3 km in length, although you will generally travel longer than this due to the many obstacles on the map.

The series begins at Adelaide University, followed by events at the Uni SA Campus at Mawson Lakes, Torrens Linear Park at Lochiel north east of the city, and the final event on the Torrens Linear Park at Underdale, west of the city.

Pre-entry is available from the event link at left or from the Event Calendar page. Enter either male or female junior, open or veteran, for either the short or long course. Enter on the day is available at all events as well.

The series is sponsored by Snap Printing and Wildfire Sports, and hosted as a fundraiser by the Southern Arrows, South Australia’s elite orienteering squad.
