Fred Caterson Reserve
SOS returns for term 3 with bush running in the heart of The Hills at Fred Caterson Reserve. Note that the start location differs to past visits to this area.
These events offer something for everyone: an ideal preparation for the Sydney West Schools Champs, a great introduction for newcomers with friendly help always available and enough to challenge and delight experienced orienteers.
Pre-entry by 12pm on the Thursday before each event is strongly preferred please. Entry on the day is available subject to map availability. Secure your map by entering early!
The Western and Hills Orienteering Club helps us out with Hills District events. As well as the Bold Horizons team, club members will be on hand to answer questions and assist anyone new to orienteering.
Event Date: Saturday 23 July 2022
Venue: Fred Caterson Reserve, Castle Hill. The meeting point is the grass reserve by the car park adjacent to the Castle Hill Cemetery on Gilbert Rd (opposite Lisa Crescent).
Amenities: There are NO toilets at the start location. The closest toilets are at the Knightsbridge Shopping Centre (600m away) or at Fred Caterson Reserve (500m away).
Start Window: 9:30am to 11am (you can start any time within this time window). Course closure: 12pm
Courses: Warm Up, Short Line, Long Line, and Score. If it’s your first time, we recommend starting out with the Warm Up and you will quickly get the idea of what to do. After that, if you want more, the event team will help you register on a second course for the morning (there’s no charge for the second course). There’s more information on courses available on the Saturday Orienteering Series page.
Groups: Families and friends are very welcome to complete a course as a group. If participating as a group, kindly enter at least one member of the group for a paid or host school student ticket. Each of these entries entitles that person to a course map, timing chip and recorded result. Accompanying family members and friends who do not need a map, timing chip or recorded result should kindly register as Group Members.
