Map: Queen's Park
Queen's Park is one of our best sprint maps. There are courses suitable for all ablities and training is available for novices and others who whish to improve their skills. The format is similar to the recent Fraser Foreshore event with loops returning to a central hub under the awning at the front of the arena. There are 6 loops. 2 between 500-600 mts. 3 approximately 1250 mts each. And 1 of 1600 mts. Total straight line distance = 6500 mts. Do them in any order and as many or as few as you wish. Sign up by Tuesday evening please.
Take special notice of the out of bounds on the busy road. You must cross via the pedestrian footbridge.
