SWAC, Middle Swan

Looking for adventure? NavDash 5 heads into the Swan Valley, to the Swan Valley Adventure Centre. Explore the grounds of the centre, with tight navigation around the buildings and fast running through the more open areas. Suited for all levels, including beginners & families.

As a bonus, we’ll be running a ‘Super Sprint’ course on top of the usual courses. This is a very short, hard-standard course that you can run in addition to your usual course.

The Super sprint will be a quick-fire, unique course…and the kicker is that we’ll be starting you off at 10 second intervals, starting at 11am at the pavilion near the registration table. Chase your rivals down, take chances on your route choices and win a sheep station (maybe!). Please enter for the extra course via Eventor (for no extra charge - select Super sprint course from the drop-down menu under 'Available services') so we know how many people are interested, but you can also enter on the day. 

This event is a WA Schools Team Selection Event.

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!
