We understand that kids are learning. Rather than disqualification for missed or incorrect controls, time penalties will apply for individual courses.
Teams of three will tackle a relay challenge together. Each team will need to devise a team strategy, before team members take turns to navigate to their agreed controls and collect maximum points.
Courses will test team work, communication and planning, navigation and fitness.
Let us know your team name and team mates when you register for the Series.
There’s three different team classes which are based on the combined age of all three team members as at race day:
Seniors – combined age of 45+ years
Speedsters – combined age of 35 to 44 years
Young guns – combined age under 35 years
