Bush 13: Marginata

Sunday, 12 September 2021

Yarra Road & Jib Road Junction, off Great Southern Highway

Entries are now open in Eventor for a standard orienteering event at Marginata in the Helena Valley on 12th September.  This is the last bush event before the Long Distance Championships the following weekend so there will be H1 to H5 Courses as well as Moderate, Easy and Very Easy on offer. The course lengths will give all a chance to test their legs before the Champs. Given the rainy winter we've had, we are anticipating a spectacular display of wild flowers so bring your cameras and enjoy the last Orienteering event in the Helena Valley for the season.

Please note that Yarra Road is in poor condition with numerous potholes and some ditches eroded across the road. Please drive with caution and consider car pooling to reduce the number of cars required to park and limit further damage to the roads and your vehicles! Parking will be along Yarra Road so please drive and park carefully.

Pre-entry via Eventor is encouraged and preferred.  Entries close at midday (12:00 WST) on Saturday 11th September. However, EOD (enter on the day) will be accepted.

Courses available: H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, M, E and VE. More details are in the Information flyer.
On the day registration: 9:00 - 11:00 am.
Start times: 9:30 am - 11:30 am (you can start whenever you want during that period, subject to numbers of others turning up at the same time).
Courses close: 1:00 pm sharp. Please return to the assembly area by 1 pm even if you have not completed your course.
Facilities: Toilet provided.
