EXTRA EVENT...Australian Ultra-Long Control Challenge

This weekend - Saturday 6 June or Sunday 7 June 2020

Start photoWith COVID restrictions still in place and large social gatherings a short time away, Orienteering Australia has created the Australian Ultra-Long Control Challenge!

The format is a DIY event but OWA has put together its own event to save you the hassle. The ultra-long challenge is a 2hr scatter event with the aim to collect the most controls as possible in the allotted time limit (up to 60).
The event is to be run on either Saturday or Sunday . There is a state vs state challenge to see which state can collect the most controls but it needs to be run on one of those days to qualify - see the Eventor and OA Facebook pages for more details on the official challenge and rules.  Run on your own or with a friend or friends (remembering not more than 99 friends at a time).   Or feel free to run it outside of these days.

For this event we have used four linked urban maps - Floreat, Reabold Hill, Mount Claremont and Swanbourne.

Orienteering Events and COVID-19


With COVID-19 restrictions easing, we are working hard to get orienteering activities going just as soon as we can.

Other than the extra event added in, events will get going again on Sunday 5 July.
