Huge thank you to all the volunteers who helped with the event today, we couldn't put them on without you!!

Results are being sorted and we should have a link soon.

Come join us for some fun forest orienteering at Ioco! Courses - all courses will have SI timing. There will be SI sticks available at registration for those who do not own one.

Note: This is a tricky map so we recommend newer orienteers register for an easier course.

1. Novice course - 1800m in length, mostly on trail - suitable for adults who have completed a beginner course before and families with children who have experience orienteering.

2. Intermediate course - 2200m in length - suitable for experienced families and recreational adults who have orienteered before. Mostly on trail and slightly longer than the beginner course. Controls mostly off trail but close to trails, route choices allow trail or off trail travel.

3. Expert course - 3600m in length, similar technical difficulty to Elite course but shorter and less long legs. Challenging terrain, controls off trail, best routes are off trail, good bearing and contour reading skills required.

4. Elite course - 5100m in length, 300m+ climb - Similar to expert but longer course, more climb, long legs, more off trail travel. Winning time should be just over 1hr.
