Next event: Spice Brook - standard bush event

on

The standard bush event at Spice Brook is worth the drive through the beautiful lush countryside this weekend. You’ll be met with a variety of courses to choose from. Ranging from very easy through to several hard course options, we have something for everyone. Novice or expert, it’s all there at Spice Brook.

For your information, the terrain is Gulley-Spur, both well defined. The map is a mixture of open-running forest with more densely vegetated areas along the major Water course which runs diagonally through the map. The two easier courses are confined to adjacent farmland to the West of the map.

Registration Times: 9:00 – 11:00am
Start Times: 9:30 – 11:30am
Courses Close: 1:00pm

Don’t forget you pay per event, so if you complete a course and enjoy it, why not do another, and then maybe another. Great value for money!

New to orienteering? We warmly welcome families and newcomers to orienteering - instruction is available so come along!
