NavDash 1: Curtin University, Bentley

Saturday 18th March 2017

NavDash returns for 2017 at one of Perth’s most popular campus maps, with a Saturday afternoon event at Curtin University kicking things off.

NavDash are short distance (2-3.5kms), line courses where controls must be visited in the numerical order shown for each course, making the most of the complex buildings and passages of a university campus. The hard courses are navigationally challenging while the easy course is more suitable for novices and children.

Curtin University is a highly complex campus on a gentle slope with many stairs and some overpasses but courses are nearly all at ground level.  This map was used for a World ranking event in 2014 and is one of our best urban maps.

The course lengths, by distance covered, are:

Hard Long: approx. 3.5 km
Hard Short: approx. 2.3 km
Easy: approx. 1.6 km.

Event details as below or check Eventor
Registration: 1-2pm
Starts: from 1.30pm until 3pm
Beginners Briefing: 1.30pm

Sportident will be used so bring your SI tag if you have one.
Pre-entry is not required.

Directions: Assembly is on Car Park B5 in the north east of the campus. From Hayman Road at traffic lights enter the campus by turning South. After about 70 m turn Left on Brand Drive and follow it bending Right, South, parallel to Hayman Drive, about 100m to the Car park B5. Note this assembly area has not been used at previous events.
