MTBO 4 - Foxes Lair
Saturday, 24 July 2021
Tour de Narrogin
Scene of the Australian Middle Distance Championships in April 2019, Foxes Lair has been re-incarnated as an MTBO map.
Runners are also welcome to enter if they'd like a long track run. The area is popular with local and visiting walkers so due caution is required. The eastern end of the map has an interesting area of single track developed by the local Wheatbelt Cycling Collective - all of the tracks are one way.
Please comply with any COVID-19 restrictions in place at the time of the event and continue to practise social distancing and good hand hygiene.
Registration: Pre-entry via Eventor preferred. Enter on the day from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm. Cash please as credit card payment may not be available;
Start times: 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm;
Courses close: 4:30 pm sharp. Please return to the assembly area by then even if you have not completed your course;
Course lengths: are (nominally) Long 30 kms, Medium 20 kms, Short 10 km;
Bring: Water (none provided); bike; helmet; mapboard (a limited number of loan boards available); SI stick and compass (loans available); sunscreen; insect repellent;
Directions: From the Williams - Narrogin Road, turn south onto Narrakine Road, east onto Forrest Street, then south onto Floreat St which becomes Range Rd - follow that and look for the signs to the farming property where the assembly area is set up. Range Road passes through the map so look out for riders on their courses.
Make a weekend of it:
On Sunday morning, try the Yorny Trail - the Wheatbelt Cycling Collective have invited us to try out their new bike trail at Yornaning Dam, north of Cuballing on the Great Southern Highway. The trail is approximately 11 kms in length.
Give those riding legs a finishing touch with a MapRunF/6 course at Dryandra Forest on your way home. Make sure you download your course when you have reception in Narrogin.
Directions to the event are also in Eventor.
