One last chance for 2018 to run around like a headless chook on a new sprint map. Three courses, no control descriptions – pure mayhem. On the back of the inaugural event last year, the Ultra-Sprint returns, this time to Leeming Senior High School. A brand new map with plenty of opportunities to get yourself mislocated and maybe end up in a Year 8 Maths class!

What is an Ultra Sprint?
The ultra-sprint is a series of three, short sprint type races where your cumulative times add up to determine the fastest over the course but there is a twist - there are no descriptions, no control numbers on the map and there will be many controls within visible sight of each other, perhaps even on opposite sides of the same feature!
The aim is to read the map carefully and punch the correct control on your course. As an added bonus you cannot record a mispunch. However, a missed control will instead incur a time penalty.
