Melbourne Sprint Weekend 2022

Join the Sprint Train to Melbourne

12 – 14 March 2022 – 6 exciting races over 3 days


Melbourne Sprint Weekend returns on 12 – 14 March 2022.

The carnival will be a similar format to previous editions with 6 races over 3 days, age classes from M/W 12 to 70 and prizes for the overall winners.  Terrain will include a variety of campuses and a bush sprint. Four of the races are on new maps.

The carnival includes a round of the National Orienteering League (NOL) comprising two individual sprints (Races 2 and 3) and a forest relay (not sprint) (Race 4).    The NOL races will be WOC and JWOC trials and one of the individual sprints will also be a World Ranking Event.  While NOL competitors are running in the forest relay, non-NOL competitors will compete in a bush sprint on an enlarged section of the relay map.

Following its success in 2020 the Knock-Out sprint returns on the Monday for the elites while non-elites finish the carnival with two more individual sprint races. The knock-out sprint will be open to all who want to try it.  Those who don’t make it past the qualifiers will be able to fall back to running their age category race in the afternoon.
