NavDash 2013 Commences Saturday 2nd March!
The popular NavDash Sprint Orienteering Series will commence on Saturday 2nd March, at Murdoch University. Registration for the event will be open from 1.00pm to 2.00pm, with the first starters heading off at 1.30pm. There will be a short briefing for beginners at around 1.20pm.
The NavDash events are short distance (2 – 4kms) held in a compact area with lots of map detail. The courses are suitable for beginners - navigating at slow speed – and experts who will be attempting to navigate while running at high speed. Competitors start at intervals of one minute, and a course will take from 12-15 minutes to 30+ minutes depending on your speed.
There will usually be two courses, one around 2-2.5kms and the other 3-4kms. Both courses will be electronically timed. The entry fee for casual members ncludes hire of a timing chip (Sportident Card) and a compass. Full members should remember to bring their SI Card.
To get to the event, take the South St Kwinana Freeway exit and head West along South St for approx. 1km to the first entry to Murdoch University on your left (350m past the Murdoch Drive traffic lights). Please park in visitor spaces in Car Park 2 or 3, and walk up to the Bush Court to the Event Registration area.
Mandurah trains stop at Murdoch Station, next to the South St Freeway exit.
There will be 10 events in the 2013 NavDash Series at regular intervals during Autumn and Winter, culminating in the Be Active State Sprint Championships in August.
Coincidentally, last year’s State Championships were held at Murdoch, and you can review the map, courses, and routes taken by some competitors at the Routegadget page for that event.
