The Winter Score series will generally have around 20 controls of varying points. Collect as many points as you can in 1 hour.
Parents of younger or inexperienced athletes may wish to accompany them. The event includes crossings of busy roads and control sites and navigational choices more difficult than a white course. The good news: we have a category designed specifically for parent and child teams.
There will be 5 categories:
- Under 13 (no older than 12)
- Young (<13) +old (>13)
- 18 and under
- Veteran (>55)
Keep out of the out of bounds areas, even keep off tracks that are covered by the OOB marking.
To avoid injury it is recommended you go downhill on wide tracks or slowly and carefully on narrower tracks. Bring capable footwear.
- Steep and slippery tracks
- Steep and rooty tracks
- Steep tracks with slippery roots
- Steep, slippery and rooty off tracks
There are unmapped tracks and navigational challenges. Less confident runners should stay in groups. If lost, head uphill to the ridgeline track.
