From the Mallett Rd/ Wonna Rd intersection travel  approx. 200m. Enter at the gate on the right side of the road (signed) and follow travelling North along the track  and then through gate following tapes and signs approximately to the east. (total distance about 3.5km) Please follow parking instructions

    Please be aware that the ground is very rocky.  Wear shoes appropriate for this.

    There will be unmarked animal tracks.  There will be holes in the fences, which can be used for access.  These are mostly marked on the map as breaks in the fence.  You may also be able to cross under the fences at some creek crossings.

    Pre allocated start times have been assigned to all runners in the championship event.  Plan to be at your start at least 5 minutes prior to your allocated time due to the 4 minute start cycle being used.

    There will be a 650m pink taped route to the start for courses 1-10 and a 500m yellow taped route to the start for courses 11-12.

    All starts allocated to course 11 and 12 will be shortly after 10am.  Be ready to walk as a group to your start with a helper. The group will leave from Registration area at 0945.

    Limited entry on the Day is available until 1130 on course 11, 9 and 7 only

    The weather is looking as though it will be fine in the lead up to the event, which means that the track should be nice and easy for vehicle access in to the event assembly area. Please treat the farm track kindly and leave the gates as found. SA Junior team will sell drinks and toasted sandwiches at the Mulga Valley event as a fundraiser.
