The three courses all have intended winning times under 15 minutes, but they provide options that should suit everyone.

Public transport options: The arena is about 1km by foot or bike from Claisebrook Station. The Yellow CAT bus goes from City Farm (S of the station) to Victoria Park (adjacent to the toilets).
Accessibility: The Easy course is suitable for children and is accessible to wheelchairs and prams (paths and a few short sections of lawn).

More information about NavDash events can be found on the OWA website, including NavDash event guidesprint orienteering tips and a sample sprint map.

NavDash event maps contain features which must not be crossed or entered, even if it is possible to do so. Some out-of-bounds areas are more obvious (e.g. garden beds) but some do not have physical boundaries (e.g. around cafes) so read your map carefully! Check out a sample legend with uncrossable features for NavDash/sprint events, and make sure to check the legend on your map at each event!
