Rediscovering Old Eureka Maps

The Eureka Winter Bush series is giving the opportunity to run on maps that have not been used in some time.

The location of Sunday’s event (9th September) at Enfield has not been run on for 35 years. The original map ‘Kuruc-A-Ruc Creek’ was mapped in 1979 with the last event being held there in 1984. Roch Prendergast has recently completed a remap of part of the area and named the map ‘Whims Holes’, and planned some fantastic courses which kept everybody who competed on their toes. The map has (very) gentle contours with areas of gold mining and provided an interesting challenge with accurate compass bearings essential regardless of the length of the leg.

The next Eureka Winter Bush event will be held on September 23rd at Springdallah, near Linton. Choose from four courses; Long Hard, Short Hard, Medium Moderate or Short Easy. For further details click HERE.
