Directions to the Event
From Perth: Allow about 1½hr from central Perth in case there are heavy-haulage delays on Gt. Northern Highway.  From central Perth, follow the Mitchell Freeway to its northern limit at Burns Beach Road and turn east, following Burns Beach Road which becomes Joondalup Drive and then Neaves Road.  At the end of Neaves Road turn left on Muchea South Road and then first right onto Rutland Road to reach the Great Northern Highway.  Head north on Great Northern Highway for approximately 30km and turn east (right) onto Flat Rocks Road, continuing for about 8km to Western Boundary Road.  Go right on Western Boundary Road for 3km to reach the assembly area.  Caution: Flat Rocks Road is a gravel road with some awkward bends and should be travelled with caution. Western Boundary Road is in poor condition and considerable care should be exercised on this stretch.

From Midland: Join the Great Northern Highway and head north for about 25km through Bullsbrook and past the Rutland Road junction, continuing on the Gt. Northern Highway as described above.

Parking attendant(s) will assist in directing traffic in this area. If you park here you will access the arena by crossing Western Boundary Road and walking south through a paddock to the arena.  Additional time must be allowed if competitors intend to utilise this parking area and visit the arena before proceeding to the Starts.

Landowners: We are indebted to the Wilding families for access to this area. Please respect their property. In particular, do not approach farm animals, farm equipment or farm buildings. Please leave gates as you find them and if you cause any fence damage please report it to Registration.

Course Planners: Russell Wade, Cassie Wade
Day Organiser: Jan Fletcher
Controller: Brian Austin

Directions to the Event
From Perth: Allow approximately 90 mins from Perth.
Travel to Midland then east on Great Eastern Highway (signposted “Kalgoorlie”). Approximately 63 km from Midland (61 km from Roe Hwy.)and 500 m past Clackline turn right into Spencers Brook Road. Follow Spencers Brook Road for 9 km, turning right at the ‘O’ sign. Follow the track straight ahead to the parking area. Follow signs and park as directed by the marshalls. 

From Northam: Take Great Eastern Highway westbound approximately 16km. As you approach Clackline turn left into Spencers Brook Road and proceed as above.

Terrain Notes
The terrain is mostly open farmland, but contains patches of remnant native vegetation and trees.  Rock detail covers the whole area, and rock sheets are a feature of the terrain. There are few creeks or major tracks but a series of fences divide the map into paddocks. There is no understorey due to grazing and as a result running speeds are expected to be fast. Brown dots on the map can be earth or (morelikely) rock features on the ground.

Course Planners Notes
This is a mass-start “scatter” event. Courses are defined by the number of controls that must be visited. The maps for courses 1–3 will show 22 controls selected from those used for the Schools Relays; maps for course 4 will have a different selection of controls, of Moderate–Easy standard, within a more restricted area. Competitors choose which controls to visit and in which order. The course lengths shown are approximate shortest routes. A poor route choice may mean considerably extra distance will be covered.
There will be carpeted fence crossings on some courses. These are recommended but not compulsory. They are marked on the maps and will have flagging tape.

Technical Notes
Refer to GENERAL & TECHNICAL INFORMATION  for information relevant to all events.

Start Time
The graveyard and start are adjacent to and visible from the assembly area.
A briefing for all runners will be at 1:15pm
There will be a mass start for all competitors at 1:30pm adjacent to the relay graveyard.

Safety
The safety bearing for all courses is West to Spencers Brook Road.

Course Closure
Courses will close at 3:30pm

Water
Water will be available for competitors at the Finish and Start, and at some controls on courses 1–3 (not on course 4). Water controls will be identified in control descriptions and also indicated on the map by the “refreshment” symbol adjacent to control circles. There is no general water supply at the arena.

Presentations
Presentations will be made as soon as place gettrs are known,with prizes for placegetters in all classes.

 Out of Bounds
The land outside the parking and the assembly/finish areas is out of bounds except when competing. The out of bounds areas will be clearly marked with streamers and signs.

Warmup Area
Warmup is permitted only in the assembly and parking areas.

Toilets
Toilets will be in the assembly area.

 Event 8 -Australian Long Distance Championships   Warranine Brook sample Aust Long Distance and Relays-20131229

Saturday 4th October 2014             

IOF World Ranking Event
Silva National League Event

Location: Southeast of Bakers Hill
31°45’27”S, 116°30’16”E

Map: Warranine Brook
1:15,000 with 5m contours, digital print, for 21E, 20E, and 35A classes (see below)
1:10,000 with 5m contours, digital print, for other classes

The maps for all classes in the Australian Long Distance Championships are now digitally printed.
For this event, the digital prints are:
1:15,000 with 5m contours for M/W 21E, 20E, and 35A classes
1:10,000 with 5m contours for other classes

Previous advice was that the 1:15,000 maps would be offset printed in line with IOF recommendations.
This however was to be a prohibitively expensive exercise for the small numbers of maps required.  The quality of digital printing has advanced significantly to allow digital printing at 1:15,000 to be considered.

The 1:15,000 digital prints have been inspected by the IOF Event Advisor, Controller and Course Planners and they are satisfied that the maps meet the requirements of line quality, legibility and colour for a World Ranking Event.

Landowners: We are indebted to Don and Coral Langdon, Russell and Judy Swann, Mike, Sue and Nick Tighe, Ivan Pertot, and Lyn Stoltze and Tony Whittaker for access to this area.

Course Planners: Noel Schoknecht, Tony Whittaker
Day Organiser: Lyn Stoltze
OFA Controller: Ian Fletcher
IOF Event Adviser: Alex Tarr

 Directions to the Event
From Perth: Allow about 1 hour from Roe Hwy interchange, 1½ hr from central Perth, in case there are heavy-haulage delays on Gt. E Hwy.
Follow Great Eastern Highway eastbound from Midland or Roe Highway. Take the “Kalgoorlie” exit from Roe Highway overpass. Approximately 55 km from the overpass, and 3 km past Bakers Hill, turn right into Decastilla Road [CAUTION: this turn is across two oncoming lanes; if traffic conditions are unsafe continue 1.6 km and turn left into Refractory Road, use the gravel turning loop and return to Decastilla Road]. Follow Decastilla Road for 3km [CAUTION; single-lane road with blind crest], turn left through farm gate, follow marked track approximately 500m to parking, and park as directed by marshalls.

From Northam: Take Great Eastern Highway westbound for approximately 17km and pass Clackline. 3.2 km after the Clackline exit turn left into Decastilla Road and proceed as above.

Terrain Notes
Undulating to moderately hilly granitic terrain on farmland with a mix of cleared, partly cleared and remnant forest, usually delineated by fences. Complex granite throughout many areas of the map.Gully/spur features are relatively minor. Areas of fallen vegetation in the forest are marked pale or medium green and will significantly reduce running speeds.

Course Planners Notes
There are numerous fences in the map area. Most are readily crossable. One high fence will have crossing points shown on the map and marked by flagging at body height. These are recommended but not compulsory. Ancient fencelines consisting of discontinuous wire on the ground and rare residual posts have not been mapped.
Gates have not been mapped; they are considered part of the fence and should not be opened.
Please report any damage to fences or other property to Registration.

Technical Notes
Refer to GENERAL & TECHNICAL INFORMATION  for details of Start procedures, radio controls, etc.

Start Times
First start is at 9:30am

Walk to Start

Pre-Start distance
There is a single Start grid but Courses 16 and 17 exit in a different direction than other courses.

For Courses 1–15 it is approximately 40 m from timing start to navigation start. For Courses 16 and 17 it is about 10 m, and the start maker will be visible from the start grid.

Course Closure
Competitors must report to the Finish by 2:30 pm.

Safety
The safety bearing for all courses is West to Decastilla Road. Control collectors will visit all control sites from 2:30 pm.

Water
Water will be available for competitors at the Finish and Start, and on courses as required by competition rules. There is no general water supply at the arena.

Model Map
There is a model map area adjoining the northwest side of the carpark, with access opposite registration. It illustrates most aspects of the mapping but not the character of the more extensive slow-running portions of the map. Maps of the model area will be included in Registration bags.

Warmup Area
Warmup is permitted only in the model map paddock and on the route to the Start.

Elite quarantine
There is no isolation pre-start area. However, M21E and W21E finishers may not return to the warmup or Start areas until after the last starts in those classes.

Activities for young children
A toy tent and a string course will be available. The sting course is about 100 m from the arena and will have signs from the toy tent.
