BendigO-Ringen Weekend, July 27-28

Why travel half-way round the world to run on five maps in six days when you can run five events in two days in Bendigo?

Yes, a little cheeky perhaps. But after the travellers have all left for northern climes and big events, leaving you at home through the winter, you can console yourself with a weekend of gold mining orienteering on the edge of Bendigo. On Saturday it’s the usual Bendigo local event format of 5 courses on the Royal George Company map. Enter on the day as is usual for our Saturday events.

On Sunday morning you can partake of the orienteering equivalent of that 1960s fundraiser, the progressive dinner. Four small gold mining maps, each with a single 2km course, and an untimed drive between maps. Course 1 visits all four maps, Course 2 visits three etc. The drive between all the maps is less than ten kilometers in total. The longest course is 8 kilometers and the shortest is 2.6.
Starts between 10 and 11. More details on Eventor. Pre-entry only for Sunday’s events with entries closing this Thursday (25 July).
