Double OY weekend of orienteering in the Canterbury high country. Tekapo on Saturday, Maunders on Sunday. Book you Saturday night accommodation in Tekapo for a great weekend of orienteering including the chance to run on the brand new Maunders map.

Tekapo is one of PAPO's classic maps that people look forward to every time. Beautiful conifer forest on rolling moraine relief, with a wonderful scattering of clearings throughout. Some denser blocks of forest are present in the north, which do an excellent job of concealing those few elusive controls every time. Have your compass close to the map for this one, but don't forget to lift your head occasionally to admire the majestic mountains across the lake.

Courses: Standard OY courses (Red Long, Red Medium, Red Short, Orange, Yellow, White)


Please park in the Old Homestead Carpark beside the lake as directed by signage. Registration etc. will be adjacent to parking.

Signposted from SH8 from both directions.

Start times: 11am-2pm
