Sprint Into Spring Back With A Bang

Wednesday, 4 October 2017

Race 1 - University of Melbourne, Saturday 14 October

Excitement was in the air as the first Sprint Into Spring race got underway at the University of Melbourne's campus in Parkville.  A big crowd featured many regular Melbourne park-street competitors ready to take on some of Australia's top sprint orienteers, mixed with a crop of up and coming juniors, all vying for a Yellow, Green, or Polkadot Jersey.  Asha Steer's courses ensured the action was fast and furious, with constant direction changes and subtle but significant route choices.  The 100 metre dash along the finish chute made great spectating, and the instant results on our TV screens created a real buzz at the arena.

Race 2 - Oxley College, Chirnside Park, Saturday 21 October (new map)

Good things come in small packages, so if you've had a sneak peek on Google maps, don't be fooled by appearances - there is definitely more than meets the eye here. This compact campus will pack a punch, with multiple levels, tight turns, corners, crannies and crevices.  All courses will feature a map flip part way through.

No pre-entry required - enter at Registration from 1.00pm, and start any time between 1.30 and 2.45pm.  Series tickets are still on sale, at $50 for adults and $25 for juniors (u21). 

Getting there: Head east on the Maroondah Highway towards Lilydale.  Turn left and up the hill onto Old Melbourne Road (opposite Bunnings), then follow Orienteering signs to the car park, which is adjacent to the arena.

Take advantage of a special Sprint training session afterwards by our Brit coaches Will and Peter.  And don't forget to sign up at Registration for our new Interscholastic Challenge, open to anyone who is a school or university student, teacher or lecturer.  Find out more on Instagram.
