Wardstock Orienteering Festival (South Island Champs)
Marlborough Orienteering invites and welcomes you all to a three day festival of orienteering, fun and good times located in and around the magnificent Eastern region of Marlborough!
The South Island Champs 2019 is our clubs offering to the NZ Orienteering community to come and run on two new maps in an area where we have never had maps before. "Post-earthquake Lidar examination of land movement conducted by GNS and the Marlborough District Council provided a great opportunity for new detailed maps by Wayfind Outdoors (Michael Croxford)." Having new maps will also allow the club to introduce orienteering to the Ward and Seddon Schools next year.
The Ward community has endured 3 major earthquakes in 4 years and the champs event is also an opportunity for us to engage with and support the local community.
