Next Bush events: Umuna & Evedon

Sunday 13th September 2015

Umuna (long distance) will offer you a picturesque ridge of grazed remnant bush with views across the adjacent wheatbelt. Plus wallabies and echidnas (if you’re lucky!). They’ll be lots of granite but mostly open terrain. With seven different courses to choose from, ranging from easy to hard, you’ll be spoilt for choice and challenges.
If you're a regular, then this is the last chance to sharpen your skills before the WA Championships, and Umuna has many similarities to Warranine Brook. The courses have only a moderate amount of climb and the terrain is mostly quite open, so expect some fast times. 

For event fees, directions and other information click here for Umuna. Please note that for the last few km use only the written directions in O Express and on Eventor, not the route on Google Maps (which seems to have forgotten that Luptons Rd. exists).

Registration Times: 9:00 – 11:00am
Start Times: 9:30 – 11:30am
Courses Close: 1:00pm

Evedon (middle distance) has similar terrain to the State Championships at Warranine Brook east of Mundaring. Enter on the day, but to ensure there are enough maps, please phone 9795 7706 beforehand. Three courses to choose from:

Short - 2.5km
Medium - 3 - 5km
Long - 5 - 8km

Registration Times: 12:30 - 1:30pm
Start Times: 12:45 - 1:45pm
Course Closes: 3:00pm
