NavDash at John Forrest National Park


Saturday 1 August 2015

Come and enjoy Navdashing in the bush this coming Saturday afternoon in the beautiful John Forrest National Park. Enjoy the natural beauty and wildlife of Perth’s first National Park conveniently located in the Darling scarp, 24 km east of Perth.

The NavDash is very suitable for beginners, as the events are relatively short in distance and navigation is relatively easy at a slow jog or walking pace, but can be tricky when running at full speed. Lots of fun for beginners and experienced Orienteers! If you haven’t tried a NavDash before now is the time give it a go and head up to the John Forrest National Park this Saturday. Need some tips on what NavDash and Sprint Orienteering is all about. Review this quick guide.

We warmly welcome families and newcomers to orienteering - instruction is available.

Bush Event at Gunapin Ridge (West)
State Orienteering League - Long Distance

Has your training paid off in the early part of the season and do you have your bush running legs ready to score some points in the State Orienteering League (SOL) Long Distance event? This year the SOL Long Distance event will be at Gunapin Ridge on the eastern edge of the State Forest with the map providing an interesting mix of farm and wandoo bush. Plenty of rocky outcrops to keep you on your toes as you manage the twists and turns of the different courses. And if you need something else to tempt you out to the bush wild flower season should be well under way.

What is the difference between an SOL event and a Standard event?
