Tasmanian Sprint Championships - Randalls Bay - Sunday August 16th
This is NOT going to be your average sprint terrain. No streets, no parkland, no school campuses. In fact, according the description of sprint orienteering in the rules, this won’t really be a 'Sprint'. Perhaps you could call it a 'forest sprint' but really 'short middle' would be more accurate.
This will be real forest orienteering with some very intense technical navigation in old sand quarries.
The map also covers some coastal reserve including Mickeys Beach, Randalls Bay Beach and some beautiful rugged coastline.
It may not be your usual sprint race but it will be a real test of orienteering in unique and beautiful terrain. And quite possibly Australia's southernmost orienteering map.
After the event you can do the lovely short local Echo Sugarloaf walk, which starts at the assembly area, to take in stunning 360 degree views of the Southwest National Park, Huon River and D'Entrecasteaux Channel. And then visit Cygnet (just 12km away) for coffee, food, galleries, etc.
Entries close on Wednesday 12th August. No late entries will be accepted.
