Be Active Metro Series
This week’s Be Active Metro Series event will start from John XXIII College in Mt Claremont, at the usual time of 5.00pm on Saturday. Registration will be open from around 4.15pm, and a briefing for beginners will be conducted at around 4.45pm, before a mass start at 5.00pm.
There will be three courses with simple navigation – Short (2-3kms), Medium (5-6kms), or Long (7-9kms). You can walk, jog or run to find the control points, using the special map provided. For more information on getting started see the Urban Events Guide with tips and a sample map and course.
Event Directions: The event assembly area is on the College oval near the main car park off John XXIII Avenue.
Note that the car park on JohnXXIII Avenue is one-way, and the assembly area is at the Northern end of the car park. The best access to John XXIII Avenue from either Northern or Southern suburbs is via Brockway Road.
For those travelling by bike and/or public transport, the nearest train stations are Shenton Park or Karrakatta on the Fremantle line. From Shenton Park station it is a 2km walk/ride via Lemnos St and Brockway Rd, or from Karrakatta it is 1.5kms via Quintillian Rd, Camelia Avenue and Mooro Drive.
Bus No. 27 from St Georges Terrace stops on Brockway Rd near the junction with John XXIII Avenue, 500m from the assembly area.
This is the second last event in the current Be Active Metro Series, and several age classes are yet to be decided in the overall Series scores, so results from the next two events are important. However, Ricky Thackray and Lee Holliday won the Long and Medium courses respectively at Lightning Swamp (Noranda) last Saturday to clinch overall victories. The Short course is still up for grabs, with Kellie Martin the current leader, but either Annemarie Frank or Bryan Hardy can also win with good results in the last two races.
