Summer Sprint series 2021

A series of evening sprint events held over consecutive Tuesday nights in February and March. These are always fun and are planned by some of the up and coming club juniors. There are always plenty of PAPO members willing to help anyone new to the sport.

Come along and experience an adventure sport, practice map reading and navigation, and improve your fitness.

  • Run, jog, or walk - you set the pace
  • By yourself, in a team, or as a family
  • Fun adventure or a competitive challenge and race

On each night registration will be from 4:40pm with starts between 5:00pm and 6:30pm. Course closure (the time that you must come back to the finish even if you have not completed the course) is 7:30pm. 

Check the event information page for the exact location for each event.

Each evening there will be 3 courses (1.5km - 3km) with winning times about 15/20 mins:

  • Beginner 
  • Medium 
  • Hard 

Costs:

  • Adult: $10
  • Junior/Student : $5
  • Family : $25
  • Sport Ident hire: $2
