Final Chance to Enter the Australian MTBO Champs

Australia’s top MTB Orienteering event is coming to Victoria in just over a week and it’s still possible for you to be a part of the action with late entries still open until this Friday (18th October) at midnight. 

Never tried MTBO before or not sure if you should give a championship event a go – Gary Buchan from Eureka Orienteers has this advice for you:

“I really think that this event will be one of the greatest and most exciting opportunities for Orienteers who have never tried MTBO to give it a go! Just like all the other forms of orienteering, MTBO is yet another variation and still takes you to places you may never have gone too if it was not for the fact that an orienteering event was being held there. One huge aspect of MTBO is that you get to go even further so you see even more of the forests!! Anyway, now I am really looking forward to the champs and can hardly wait for Friday the 25th of October to arrive and head of into the forests after the MASS start! I really encourage you to think about entering and thus support this event, even if it is just one of the four main events, because I truly believe you will have an awesome time over this Aus MTBO Champs weekend in Maryborough, VIC. Hope to see you there!”

A special treat is in store for riders taking on the new maps around Maryborough and the Central Goldfields region with generally easy riding tracks and gentle terrain, but still with plenty of navigational challenges due to the terrific network of tracks paths and roads on the maps.

There will be 4 championship events held over 3 days starting on Friday the 25th of October through to Sunday the 27th.

The Mass Start, Sprint and Middle Distance events are all within riding distance (<4 km) of central Maryborough. The Long Distance event is in Dunolly, just 24km to the north.

There will be a Championships Dinner on Saturday night at the iconic Maryborough Station Cafe and Restaurant.

Orienteering Australia is also hosting an IOF MTBO Organiser and Controller Clinic conducted by experienced MTBO administrator, Sandor Talas from Hungary.
