Location: Langford Park, Jarrahdale

Come to MTBO to find out why Langford mountain bike park is a popular mountain biking destination in Perth. Langford Park has lots of fast and flowy single track through the native bushland without those major hill climbs. These trails are a great place to learn and get started in mountain biking orienteering - so bring your friends and family!

Short, Medium and Long courses will be available, plus we will be trialling a new course called “Choose your own Adventure” (AKA: a score event). Riders in this category can go out and collect as many orienteering controls as they like in whichever order they please. This category is for those riders who are beginners or who wish to have more flexibility in their Mountain Bike Orienteering Experience. For our beginner riders; you will be able to follow the sign posted network of beginner and intermediate trails to collect controls. Ride within your abilities, learn how to use the orienteering map provided and be safe in the knowledge that you can easily find your way on the marked trails. Once confident of your skills you can Choose your own Adventure and go off the sign posted trails to collect other controls available. It will be possible to collect ALL controls in under 21kms!

WA Classic Two Day

Warranine Brook resizedWarranine bush event

Sunday 4th and Monday 5th June 2017

This two event is a popular and regular feature on the WA orienteering calendar and everyone is welcome. This is a two Day event with cumulative times used to decide the places over the two races. This year it will be held on a farmland area which has a mixture of bush, dense strands in part and open terrain which is generally fast running. Make a weekend of it and enjoy camping on Sunday evening.

There will be no Pre-Entry for this event. There is no requirement to enter any specific course based on age grouping. You are welcome to enter just one of the days but of course you will not be eligible for the two Day results. Note that courses are set at 80% of the standard distance so running two days is possible!

Taek care while on your course as all the controls for both days will be out there on Day 1 (Sunday afternoon). There will be many controls out as part of the Day 2 event, which generally won’t be yours, so please check the control numbers to avoid mispunching.
