Upcoming Events

OWA Events

Entry for all events can be made in advance through Eventor. 
Enter-on-the day is available, but pre-entry is preferred and is required for Championship courses.

With the public holiday this weekend, we are heading down to Narrogin for 3 days of events. 

Online entries for the events are closed on but if you haven't entered in advance, we'd still love to see you and entries on the day are possible.


Entries are also open for the Club Relay event at UWA on Sunday 4th October. 
Members are all encouraged to enter and help their club win the Rutty Rock and B&O trophies.  If you're a newer member and aren't sure what's involved, talk to your club convenor or anyone at an upcoming event.  
If you're not a member (yet), you are still most welcome to attend and run as an individual.  Just turn up and enter on the day for this NavDash (sprint-style) event.

The final event in Perth Metro area is an MTBO event in Glen Forrest.  Come and take part in the WA State MTBO Middle Distance Championships.  Age classes from 10 years and upwards... There aren't many sports where you can participate in State Championships without lots of experience and training.  Come and have a go... the most important thing is to have fun. 

Orienteering is a sport for all ages and abilities. Children, families and groups can enjoy some exercise and a fun outdoor challenge, while at the top end of the field elite athletes can race against tough competition up to an international level.

The best way to find out more about orienteering is to come along to any event! NavDash Events in particular are a great way to start as there's not far to go to get there.  We're trying to avoid beginner's briefings while we have to socially distance but we will ensure you know what you're doing before you head out on a course.  So sign up, come along, enjoy yourself in the outdoors and get involved in a fun, healthy activity.

OWA Sledge Competition - Tour de SOL

Do you orienteer for fun rather than to seriously compete?


If so, then the Sledge Class is for you.

It doesn't matter if you're not interested in competition, you think you're unfit, too old or recovering from an injury.

Keep the fun in your run and enjoy sledging your rivals over the rest of the SOL events (that's the remaining Championship events) in OWA's Tour de SOL.

Class winners must agree to wear the boxers for the next SOL event and then hand them over to the class winners at the end.  In this COVID-environment, you are allowed to wash the boxers before wearing them at the following event.


Event Report: Bush 8 Frazzle Rock

Sunday 13th September 2020


What a fantastic weekend we had down at Frazzle.

Several took the opportunity to camp and enjoyed several hours around a camp fire after watching a beautiful glowing sunset.  The clear sky gave the opportunity to gaze at the incredibly bright stars overhead.

While the sun had been hiding the previous weekend, it was not the case for the Frazzle event and it was a perfect, warm, sunny spring morning. 

Thanks to setter Chas Lane and controller Mike Howe, the courses were appreciated by more than 70 competitors who attempted them and admired the wildflowers en route.
