This is a series of evening sprint events held over consecutive Tuesday nights in February and March. These are always fun and are planned by some of the up and coming club juniors.
Come along and experience an adventure sport, practice map reading and navigation, and improve your fitness.
- Run, jog, or walk - you set the pace
- By yourself, in a team, or as a family
- Fun adventure or a competitive challenge and race
The series also incorporates an inter-school challenge to find the top sprint orienteering school in Canterbury.
On each night registration will be from 5:30pm with starts between 6:00pm and 7:00pm. Course closure (the time that you must come back to the finish even if you have not completed the course) is 8pm.
