Courses and winning times

There will be only 2 courses: Men’s Open and Women’s Open. Estimated winning times will be 12-15 minutes for the individual sprints, 10 minutes for the KO qualification and 8 minutes for each of the KO QF, SF and Final. The numbers of QF and SF in the KO sprint will depend upon the number of entries. It is hoped that it will be possible to run B and C SF etc. so that those knocked out at QF level get further runs.

As New Zealand is in Covid Protection Level Red the field will be limited to a maximum of 40 men and 40 women.

Entries can be made at https://www.revolutionise.com.au/redkiwi/events/131489/ with a closing date of 11.59 pm Sunday 27 February.

Entry fees are $10 per individual sprint and $15 for the KO sprint. Entrants will be invoiced by Orienteering New Zealand after the event.

Covid precautions

  1. All entrants must be double vaccinated against Covid-19 and in possession of a valid vaccination pass.
  2. As above the number of entries is strictly limited to keep the number of athletes + officials below 100.
  3. Whilst at the events all athletes and officials must where face masks at all times except when actually running.
