NavDash at John Forrest National Park

Saturday 1 August 2015

Come and enjoy Navdashing in the bush this coming Saturday afternoon in the beautiful John Forrest National Park. Enjoy the natural beauty and wildlife of Perth’s first National Park conveniently located in the Darling scarp, 24 km east of Perth.

The NavDash is very suitable for beginners, as the events are relatively short in distance and navigation is relatively easy at a slow jog or walking pace, but can be tricky when running at full speed. Lots of fun for beginners and experienced Orienteers! If you haven’t tried a NavDash before now is the time give it a go and head up to the John Forrest National Park this Saturday. Need some tips on what NavDash and Sprint Orienteering is all about. Review this quick guide.

We warmly welcome families and newcomers to orienteering - instruction is available.
