Navigation on the run for every family

Summer orienteering based in western Sydney parks offers a wider range of courses to suit all in the family.

There is a short line course (up to 3k) with no street crossings, a longer line course (up to 6k) with minimal streets and a score course option. (Line course controls are visited in a set order. Score course controls can be visited in any order). 

There will be a VERY EASY short course suitable for younger children.

Run by yourself or in a group.

More complete details for each event will be found on EVENTOR.
