No moon. Oxenford is in the shadow of Tamborine Mountain so the sunset and last light times given above may not be meaningful.
Welcome to the 1st event of our Summer Sundown Street Score Series for 2014/15. Each event is a mass start Score event (get as many as you can) over 60 minutes run during twilight on a map with streets and bush trails. Each of the 20 controls has the same value: 1 point. Winner clips the most controls in the correct box. You may run as a team, but this is not a team event like a rogaine. The markers are small-sized conventional orienteering flags with clippers.
This event is not suitable for young orienteers; we are not offering a Park course or any Easy courses. Everyone runs during dusk and darkness across and along streets and through hilly bushland tracks. The controls are relatively easy to find, but you will be running in low or no light, so they will be more challenging.
We are using a brand new IOF colour map at 1:10,000 of Oxenford, next to the Motorway in northern Gold Coast. Your map will be pre-marked but not bagged; we will provide a bag if you want one.
You may complete your course on foot or riding a Mountain Bike or similar sturdy bicycle.
