Last Saturday’s Ocean Grove event began with overcast and mild conditions for street orienteering. Andrew T had set a course that took advantage of the coastal dunes but also included a high scoring cluster of controls in the back streets, well removed from the foreshore hustle and bustle. Significant navigational decisions had to be made.Those that chose a 60 minute walk or run, were mostly able to complete their course in dry conditions. We 90 minute participants copped an absolute drenching !! I quite enjoyed sloshing around in water logged running gear for final sections of my run.

The Surf Coast series is now down to the last event this coming Saturday 23/1. The Start / Finish is opposite the Bowls Club at Queenscliff and the usual practice is that we all have a meal at the club following our run / walk. Jenny C is the course setter, so the high standard is sure to be maintained.

You know the deal – start anytime between 3:30pm and 4:00pm. You wont need to pre-register but you will need to do the QR check in and check out. All the usual covid rules apply, ie: wear a mask when in close proximity to others, minimise contact with others, use hand sanitiser before and after the event. We’re using MapRun only, the entry fee is $5 per event, with electronic payment available and preferred.

Though this series is ending, the Geelong summer series will resume on Thursday 28/1.

See you there !!
