Which event can my school enter?

You should enter the event that is most convenient for you. Ideally this is your ‘local’ championship, but due to other commitments you may find it preferable to enter a different event. There are no restrictions on which school can enter which championship.

 

EVENT INFORMATION

 

Start time

Students will start at 1 – 2 minute intervals, starting at 10.30am.

Finishing time

The Award Presentation will be held at approximately 1.00pm

Further information including car and coach parking information, individual start times and sample maps will be sent out at the end of April.

Champion School Scoring

  • “Champion School” points will be earned by the top 10 finishers in each age category: 1st place = 10pt, 2nd = 9pt, etc.
  • A maximum of 3 finishers from a school may score points in each age category (only the top 3 finishers from each school are counted).
  • “Champion School” will be awarded at each regional championship.

Age Categories

Age categories have been altered this year to improve the competition and streamline event management. The “pairs” categories have been amalgamated into a single age class containing both single-sex and mixed pairs. There is no “A” or “B” definition. All courses are of easy navigation difficulty with variation in distance for the different year levels.

GRADE 3 (1.0km)Girls SOLOBoys SOLOPAIRS
GRADE 4 (2.0km)Girls SOLOBoys SOLOPAIRS
GRADE 5 (2.5km)Girls SOLOBoys SOLOPAIRS
GRADE 6 (3.0km)Girls SOLOBoys SOLOPAIRS

Courses are set along handrails such as tracks and fences but may include the option to navigate “across country”. Route Choice will be a feature for grades 5 + 6, with participants choosing from a range of possible routes between controls. Controls are located either on or adjacent to handrail features.

The expected winning time for each course is 20min

Entry forms are available at the bottom of the page. Once your entry has been received you will be sent an entry invoice. The entry fee is $10 per student or $15 per pair. For more information please contact Rob [email protected] 0428 358 588
