Form a team for the SA Club Relays

on .

SA Interclub Relays, Sunday October 20th, Coromandel Valley Primary School

CoroSchoolAll orienteers are invited to come out and run around Coro Primary and Frank Smith Park +/- Blackwood Forest on Sunday October 20th at the club relays hosted by the Southern Arrows, South Australia’s elite orienteering squad.

All you have to do is to form teams of 2 – only one member of the team has to be a current financial member of your club - and let your club secretary know who you want to run with before Oct 14th. So encourage all your friends who haven’t orienteered in a while, to join you in a team. It’s also possible to form teams where nobody is a club member although then your team won’t count towards the interclub trophy.

As was done previously, we have no age limitations and the choices are simply: men’s, women’s and mixed age classes on 4 different courses, which are approximately:

  • 5.5km hard (split into 2 x 2.7 km, each person runs twice)
  • 4.5km moderate/hard  (split into 2 x 2.2km, each person runs twice)
  • 3.5km moderate (split into 2 x 1.7km, each person runs twice)
  • 2km easy – each person runs once only Relay1

So you can pick a course which matches your preference, and which has been expertly planned by our WOC representatives Bridget & Simon! It’s lots of fun, and there will be prizes...for further information as it becomes available, go to: https://eventor.orienteering.asn.au/Events/Show/9161

Renmark Orienteering Weekend

on .

Renmark Orienteering Weekend 7-8 September.

 

Sunday 8th September provided the opportunity to Orienteer on the Crooked Straight map near Renmark, that was used last year for the national championships. The event was organised by Yalanga.

The weather was perfect for the 90 competitors and the courses were worthy of a State Champs set by Peter Mayer with oversight provided by Bob Smith as Controller.

The terrain of a sandy plateau dropping to the flood plain of the River Murray allowed for fast running in places through scattered bush, apart from where the loose sand slowed progress. Careful navigation was required on a map which allowed for many route choices and great competition.
