MetrO Series Event 4 - Trigg

Saturday November 23, 2019

Pictured is father and daughter Nick and Zali Dale, who are both competing strongly on the medium course at the Metro Series.

The Trigg Metro Series event is an area which has a combination of streets and bushland tracks. The limestone tracks in the bushland area are firm and distinct with several short, steep hills. The start area is at Millington Reserve and is a grassed, shady area surrounded by ovals. Very close by is Trigg beach, Clarko Reserve and the upgraded beach front at Scarborough Beach that would make great spots for a sunset picnic or takeaway dinner post event. Come and join us for some MetrO orienteering fun. 

Event Report: Manning MetrO Series Event 3

Saturday 16th November 2019

Post event Manning Park

Last Saturday’s MetrO event at Manning Park proved very challenging for many competitors. Distances for the short, medium and long courses were no different from other events, but winning times were considerably slower due to the hot weather, hilly terrain and difficulty of running on the narrow sandy and rocky trails. The navigation in the complex trail network was also trickier than at most MetrO events, and even the winners admitted to making a mistake or two (or three, or four).

Saturday November 16, 2019

The MetrO series returns this Saturday to an area that has not been used in the series for over a decade: beautiful Manning Park just south of Fremantle. The event will be held on an excellent, recently updated, 1:7500 map of Manning Park. All courses will be completely within the park, which contains lawn areas around Manning Lake as well as a large bushland reserve. The intricate trail network in the reserve will provide interesting route choice as well as some navigational challenges. The bushland reserve is hilly, but on the short course almost all climb can be avoided. Those who do climb the hills will be rewarded with great views over the lake and the ocean.

The start and finish area is at the amphitheatre along Azelia Rd, 300 m south of Azelia Ley Homestead Museum. There is a large, shaded playground 200 m to the north. Registration opens at 4.15 pm, the mass start is at 5.00 pm, and courses close at 6.15 pm.
