Bivouac Night Nav Series returns for 2015!

The popular Bivouac Night Nav Series held in support of the Southerly Storm Orienteering Team returns once again in 2015. The events are:

  • Event 1: Wed 9th Sept – Victoria Park
  • Event 2: Wed 16th Sept – Spencerville
  • Event 3: Wed 23rd Sept – Halswell Quarry

What is the Night Nav series all about?

Competitors walk or run through the forest collecting checkpoints, which are shown on the map handed out just before the start. All competitors have an hour to collect as many checkpoints as possible before returning, often in a rush, to the finish. You can compete in teams or individual, its a great social adventure. Get some friends together and give it a go! Thanks to Bivouac Outdoor for helping us to keep this event going!

Registration is from 6pm with a mass start at 7pm so please make sure you turn up on time so that you don’t miss the start. There will be a briefing shortly before the start when the maps will be handed out.

The entry fee is $20 per person. Online registration coming soon.
