Event Style

College Sport Wellington & Public Event (and OY series)

These events are traditional orienteering events held in parks around the greater Wellington region on Sundays with starts from 11 am – 1 pm. These events provide an opportunity for students new to orienteering to experience non-urban events and learn how to orienteer, while providing a challenge to experienced orienteers.

 

Event terrain

A combination of open farmland with complex rock and contour detail, and a park with tracks through dense native bush.

Courses/Classes

All courses are available to adults or children not part of the CSW series. The "Classes" table below is for those who are in CSW.

White, Yellow, Orange, Red Short, Medium and Long courses will be available. Details to come.

Parking and directions

Park in the car park at the end of Truscott Avenue, or on nearby streets if it fills up. (Along McClintock Street is a good option.) Be considerate of local residents.

Safety

Safety bearing

If in the bush in Johnsonville Park, head downhill following either main track to the event centre. If on the farmland, follow Old Coach Road and the Skyline Track clockwise to the top of the park, then downhill as above.

Specific Hazards and Notes:

  • Steep, slippery, and uneven terrain with areas of loose rock. Orienteering or trail running shoes are required for the longer courses.
  • Expect spiky undergrowth on more adventurous route choices - full leg cover is strongly recommended for orange and red courses.
  • Watch out for sheep, cows, cyclists, and other track users.
  • There are many cliffs and the main East-West gully is very steep in places. Read the contours and avoid the tops of impassable cliffs (mapped with a thick black line).
