PARK AND STREET SATURDAY SERIES – ENDURO NO 2, JULY 2, BORONIA GULLY

Our second long distance EndurO is on Saturday July 2, using a combination of maps covering Boronia and Ferntree Gully (yes there will be some hills … but also some lovely sections along creeks and bike trails).  This is a Score event with 40 controls – visit as many as you can to score as many points as possible.  There are four courses – 120 min Run, 120 min Walk, 90 min Run, and 90 min Walk.  PLEASE NOTE CHANGES TO THE PREVIOUSLY ADVERTISED 75 MIN COURSES.

Location: Boronia Park, Park Crescent (eastern end towards Dorset Road)
Start times: 120 min Run and Walk start at 2.00pm, finish at 4.00pm.  90 min Run and Walk start at 2.15pm (NOTE EARLIER START), finish at 3.45pm.

We provide: Maps, control cards, pens/pencils, plastic bags
Please bring a watch, and water.  There are toilets at the Start and out on the course.
Registration opens at 1.30pm.  There will be an important Briefing and map handout 5 mins prior to each Start time.
Cost: $5 adults, $2 juniors.  No charge for Saturday season ticket holders.

NEW QUESTION FORMAT!  Instead of choosing from 3 answers to a question, there will be a statement, with an answer of either YES or NO; eg “The letterbox at no 28 is made of wood”.  If the letterbox is made of wood, answer Y.  If it is made of something else, answer N.  We expect this will lead to less time spent at the controls, and more time to score points!

JWOC JAM will be on sale - your last opportunity!
