Bush 8: WA Middle Distance Championships
Sunday, 13 August 2023
This area was mapped 25 years ago and there are significant changes to old fence lines, tracks and vegetation boundaries. See the Information flyer for more detail. The area to be used for Courses 1-4 comprises a steep and rocky ridge with areas of slow run (50-80%) and an area of much flatter and faster open running towards later parts of the courses. Courses 5-7 will use the flatter terrain.
Entries for the State Championships close Sunday, August 6th at 23:59, but some courses will be available to enter on the day.
Entries via Eventor are open. Pre-entry only for State Championships.
