Ultra Sprint Event

NavdahrunnerDate: Saturday 21 October 201
Location: Faulkner Park, Cloverdale

This month try a new type of Orienteering event and experience an ultra-sprint at the beautiful grounds of Faulkner Park, Cloverdale.

Event Time:
Registration on the day
(for non pre-entered competitors) 9am-11am
Starts available until 11:30am

What is an Ultra Sprint?
The ultra-sprint is a series of three, short sprint type races where your cumulative times add up to determine the fastest over the course but there is a twist - there are no descriptions, no control numbers on the map and there will be many controls within visible sight of each other, perhaps even on opposite sides of the same feature!

The aim is to read the map carefully and punch the correct control on your course. As an added bonus you cannot record a mispunch. However, a missed control will instead incur a time penalty.

Register your interest via Eventor with pre registrations now open.

When you pre-register you will still pay on the day at the event. Online registration does not mean you have to attend but will assist the organisers with map numbers and will reduce queue times at the registration desk.

Please note: This event replaces the Minim Cove event listed in the printed calendar
