Urban to Bush Orienteering Events – Opportunities for bush orienteering in the suburbs

on .

From late April through May, 4 events are being provided to provide orienteers to try out orienteering in the suburban environment but with a flavour of bush orienteering at some events. At each event, several courses are available, shorter easier courses for the less experienced and longer more challenging courses for the physically fitter or more experienced orienteer. You can complete a course as an individual or in a group, and do at a pace which suits you (run or walk).

The second event (Sunday May 6th) at Heathfield includes a detailed map around the Heathfield HS (map snippet below) with a larger map extending to Woorabinda Reserve for the longer courses. A more urban style event is to be held Saturday May 12th at Stonyfell,   The fourth event on Sunday May 20th is in Shepherds Hill Recreation Park. In conjunction with the foot orienteering courses will be a Mountain Bike event. 

At all events, more experienced orienteers will be on hand to assist newcomers and those with less orienteering experience.  Participants can enter at each event, arrive between the designated start period in the event details.  Links to event information are in the event list on the right of this page.
