Orienteering / Athletics Meet - Friday 2 Feb

Orienteers and Athletes will be entering each other’s events. The evening kicks off at 5:45 with a 2km orienteering event. It will be a mass start with multiple butterfly loops inside and outside the Athletics Centre.

From 6:15 we will be able to watch these events: 800m, 200m, 3000m steeplechase, 4 x 400m and 4 x 100m relays, pole vault, javelin, high jump and shot put. The Invitational Mile at 7:15pm will be open to anyone. The evening concludes at 8:00pm and there is no charge.

A burger van will be there, drinks (including alcohol) will be available and there will be an after-party. The event is being promoted throughout the athletics community, including Little Athletics and Cross Country runners. This is a great opportunity for us to showcase and perhaps get some converts to our sport. But we must be there – come and show your support please.
