Bush 5 SW Malmalling Middle Distance SOL

Sunday 23th June 2019

Location: SW Malmalling, east of MundaringLois2019

The first SOL competition of the year will be held at Malmalling, an area that is a mixture of open, fast running with sections of dense grass trees and complex rock detail.

This Middle Distance SOL has expected winning times of 25-35 minutes. The assembly area is further down Gorrie Road than has been used in recent years, providing a different perspective of the map. Parking is along Gorrie Road and on the tracks to the north and south of the assembly area. The start for the H1, H2 & H3 courses is 1.1 km from the assembly area along a relatively flat track, while the start for the H4, M, E and VE is adjacent to the assembly area.

Beginners and families are welcome and instruction is available!

Registration times: 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Start times: 9:30 am – 11:30 am
Courses close: 1:00 pm. Please return to the assembly area by 1:00 even if you haven't completed your course.

Facilities: Toilet, cake stall
Bring: E-tag and compass if you have them or borrow ours as part of your entry fee.
What not to bring: Your dog! Please remember dogs are not permitted at bush events.
