Minim Cove Park, Mosman Park

The map for this MetrO event covers a large area of parks and suburban streets. A few steep hills in the area will provide interesting route choice as well as great views of the ocean, river, and surrounding suburbs. The assembly area is under the trees in the grassed area west of Russell Brown Adventure Park next to the public toilets.

Hot Weather Forecast (updated 13/1): With reference to the OWA Extreme Heat policy, this event will currently go ahead with courses reduced by ~20% in order to reduce risk to competitors. Please check Eventor for latest updates.

Due to steep hills in some parts of the map there are areas that are only accessible via stairs or steep paths. There are also some sand/limestone tracks and grassed areas that may be difficult to cross with prams or wheelchairs.
