WA Middle Distance Championships

Sunday 21st July 2019

Location: Avon Valley National Park KenineHill2019

The State Middle Distance Championships will take place on the Quarry Road part of the Avon Valley map located off Toodyay Road. Come and enjoy the challenge of an old favourite, first used for the National Carnival in 1988. Courses traverse a range of terrain comprising broad laterite ridges flanked by deeply dissected watercourse systems and complex rock detail. Vegetation varies from very open woodland to locally thick cover along the main streams, but general runnability is fair to good and on-course climbs are moderate.

Beginners are welcome and instruction is available! Some Enter on the Day (EOD) courses will be available once championship entrants have started.

Event Report: Bush 6 Red Hill

Sunday 7th July 2019

Red Hill, John Forrest National Park NE RedHill 2019

Over 100 people came to Red Hill on Sunday - a winter's day perfect for orienteering and getting time in Nature. There was a smattering of wildflowers  – Hibbertia, Hovea and others – and the flowing creeks provided some fun for the younger juniors. The juniors were well represented, with a bus load coming from the Junior O camp to hone their skills.
