MFR Sprints Will Put Sizzle in Your Summer!

Following on from the popular Vic Sprint Champs at Kensington late last year, Melbourne Forest Racers are back with a brand new series of high quality sprint events. The MFR Sprints will be perfect for all experience levels and are designed to be particularly newcomer-friendly, so if you’re keen to try sprint orienteering – or know of friends/family who are – then this is the event for you!

We’ll be using an innovative event format that lets everyone experience the excitement of the new knock-out sprint discipline. We’ll also be making use of a range of creative course setting techniques to keep you on your toes.

More details will be announced shortly but here’s what you can expect:

  • Fantastic urban orienteering terrain in the heart of Melbourne (never before used for sprint orienteering competitions)
  • Course setting by some of Melbourne’s top elites orienteers
  • An exciting new head-to-head racing format with mini-mass-starts of 8-10 people.

Keep an eye out for more details to be announced in the coming weeks, as well as entries which will be opening on Eventor shortly. Vic Sprint Champs podium place-getters will also be notified of how to claim their prizes (free/discounted entry to one of the events).

Dates and venues:

  • Sunday Jan 31 – Carlton Gardens
  • Sunday Feb 7 – Commonwealth Village
  • Sunday Feb 14 – Princes Hill
  • Sunday Feb 28 – Brunswick
