SUMMER SERIES – OCTOBER TO APRIL (daylight savings)

Four evenings a week all over Melbourne, as well as shorter local series in Macedon, Geelong and the Surf Coast.  Register from 6.30pm for a 7pm mass start. Running courses range from 3-10 km, and there is a 60 minute power walking course.  For runners the format is Scatter (visit a designated number of controls in any order, first back wins), and for power walkers the format is Score format (visit as many controls as you can in the allocated time, highest points score wins).

Wear jogging/walking shoes and comfortable, light coloured clothing.  Bring a watch and a drink.  Cost:  $5 per event for adults, $3 for juniors (under 21)

The Tuesday, Geelong and Surf Coast Summer Series use the MapRun smartphone app.  Download the app, and bring your iPhone or android (or borrow one from the organisers).  Instructions available at the events. At the Thursday Summer series, MapRun is optionally available as an alternative to conventional control cards.
