MelBushO This Sunday August 3 at East Ivanhoe

Wednesday, 30 July 2014

Event #6 in the 2014 MelBushO series will be held at East Ivanhoe, on Sunday 3rd August, organised by Melbourne Forest Racers. Parking is near the Eaglemont Tennis Club, off The Boulevard in East Ivanhoe, about 300m west of Burke Rd (Melway 31 K10). Parking may be a bit tight as there are other users of the park and facilities, so come with a friend if possible. You can ride a bike to this event – we are just off the Main Yarra Trail about 200m northwest of the Burke Rd underpass on the northern side of the river. Please note: there are no toilets at this location, with the nearest toilets being 1.2km further west along The Boulevard.

Registration opens from 9.30am, and you can start your course any time from 10am till 12pm.  Entry is $10 for adults and $5 for juniors, and includes map, coaching, and equipment loan.  Choose any of four courses – Long Hard, Short Hard, Moderate, or Easy.

If you have your own Sportident stick, please bring it to registration – we’ll be using online touch screen registration (Dip-Pay-Go).  If you don’t own a Sportident stick, you can borrow one for the event.
