Be the First to Sprint Indoors! Monash Indoor-Outdoor Entries Now Open

The first-ever Indoor-Outdoor Sprint orienteering race to be held in Australia, will take place at Monash University’s Clayton Campus, on Sunday June 30 2019. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!

In the morning, you’ll tackle a dizzying course covering all four levels of the Learning and Teaching Building. After lunch, you’ll compete in a second race using the outdoor areas of the campus.  Times from both races are added to determine the overall winners.

Sprint orienteering is all about making rapid decisions while reading a detailed map of a complex environment. Your brain has to work faster than your legs!  Winning times are usually 15-20 minutes. Different courses are available for all ages and abilities. You don’t have to be a champion athlete, but it helps to be a quick thinker.

Choose any of the five courses – Long Hard, Medium Hard, Short Hard, Moderate, or Easy.

Indoor Sprint – Learning and Teaching Building, starts between 10am-11am. Mapper and course planner: Peter Dalwood

A multi level map featuring stairs, one way corridors, voids, rooms, scattered furniture .. and more stairs! This will probably be the most complex map you’ve ever run on.  The map will look something like this –

Bonus Outdoor Sprint – Monash Clayton, starts from early afternoon. Mapper: Peter Dalwood. Course planners: Stuart McWilliam and Asha Steer

Monash Clayton is always evolving. The map will be freshly updated for the event. The big question is – will your brain and legs be up to a double challenge???

Online entries via Eventor are now open!  Two incredible sprints for the low price of just $12. Entries close June 28. Entry numbers for the Indoor Sprint may be capped so we recommend entering early!
