Jorgensen Park Easy Trail Orienteering

SteveTrailOSunday 22nd July 2018

Jorgensen Park, Kalamunda

This event is set near the start of the splendid Bibbulman Track and the family friendly Jorgensen Park. All the courses are designed to be easy on the navigation, encouraging participants to follow trails rather than bash through the bush, but as energetic as you want them to be, with distances of 2km to 10km or more, over (mostly) gently undulating terrain composed of a wide variety of native bush, which has even encroached on the fairways of an old golf-course in places.

This event will be enjoyable for novices and well as the experienced and competitive orienteer with the area good for novices to understand how orienteering maps relate to things like vegetation. While the experienced orienteer can enjoy the trails and navigation combination.

Start Times: 9.30am – 11.30am

Mountain bike orienteering gives you the chance to combine your map reading skills, route choice decisions and bike riding ability. Like foot orienteering, the idea is to navigate your way around a series of controls using a map and compass. Unlike foot orienteering, the idea is to ride a bike! Shorter courses are easily achievable by beginners, non-mountain bikers and families so they are suitable for participants of all ages and abilities.

Registration: 9:00 – 11:00 AM
Start Times: 9:30 – 11:30 PM
Courses Close: 1:00 PM
Courses: Long (<30 kms), Medium (<20 kms) and Short (<10 kms,)

Bring: Bike, helmet, E-tag, & compass, (or hire as part of your entry fee)
Pre-entry is not required. Entry is on the day.
Don't forget MTBO is no helmet no start!
Note: Many of the tracks have overhanging trees / regrowth - you should wear good eye protection and cover for your arms and legs

Location: From North Dandalup on the South West Highway, follow Del Park Road for ~ 13 kms and turn right into Scarp Road – follow the O signs to the Turner Hill MTB area.

near Beverley

Previously known as Pre-Frazzle, this challenging area consists of grazed paddock with very little undergrowth. Parts are quite steep and rocky. It is ideal for middle-distance courses with plenty of granite detail. The property is owned by Grant Hobbs who has generously provided access on several occasions.

A bonus is that it’s a State Orienteering League (SOL) event, so you can earn points for the Orienteer of the Year as you run. Learn what the SOL is all about. Check the events to attend in 2018, what course to run for this event and how to earn points. No pre-entry required.
