MTBO Margaret River

on

Entries for the Karrak Karnival may have closed but entries for the WA Mountain Bike Orienteering Championships in Margaret River are still open until September 28 (September 21 if you want to avoid the late fee).  Yes this is a championship event but it is no different to your normal MTBO event except that the course you ride will be determined by your age category - feel free to ride a longer course though (or a standard shorter course)!

The three events (long, middle and sprint) will take place on October 10-11 on three great new maps, including the awesome trails in the Carters Rd pines so you will be kicking yourself if you miss it.  Take the opportunity to meet riders from the east and enjoy the social dinner and prize giving in a relaxed setting on Saturday night.  Spend the Sunday exploring the beaches, caves and other sites of one of WA's premier wine regions.

For full details and entries for the three events, read the Bulletin on Eventor.  Pre-entries are strongly preferred but there will be courses available on the day in non-championship categories.
