Partridge Hills Adventure Run
Event Summary: Over 35 orienteers took on the challenge of negotiating the maze of trails in the Partridge Hills Area on a particularly beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon. Despite being a trails-only event, there was plenty to test the skills of new to advanced orienteers alike. To achieve success, it was important to keep in touch with the map and always use the compass to verify direction. Thank you to Roger for a very interesting course plan.

Details: This event promises to be an adventure that will appeal to both regular club members and the general public. There are three courses designed for a range of experience and levels of challenge; those new to orienteering and those looking for either a physical or navigation challenge. A specific effort has been made to make each course interesting by offering more than one possible route on each leg. The route you choose will dictate your overall time. Courses are much shorter than last year's event (45 minutes is the expected winning time on course 3).
