Training Session For Mtbo Events In Christchurch

Postby XCguy on Fri 30/Apr/10 10:39am

MTBO night training, McLeans Island (organised by PAPO)

Date: Sunday 16th May

Start Times: Registration will be from 5.45 pm with riders or groups starting at 1 minute intervals. Course closure is 7.30 pm. Basic instruction will be available for those new to orienteering.

You will be looking for small reflective controls marked with a single-letter code. A pencil may be needed to record the codes.

The course will generally follow the MTB single track (without Coringa loop) with a few small deviations. Map is similar to that used for the MTBO short course on 10th March. Fastest riders can expect to complete the course in less than 40 minutes.

What to bring: Mountainbike, helmet with a good night light. $2 for a map. A map board or some means of carrying your map is very useful. A small backup torch is worth having if your main light fails and a compass will help you keep track of where you are on the map.

Directions: Registration, start and finish will be at the main Forest Park picnic area off McLeans Island Road opposite Orana Park. We may have to park outside the gate.

Special Note: PLEASE advise Graeme Read ( by 11th May if you are planning to take part so we can prepare the correct number of maps. Graeme is also available for any queries, ph 3522582.
