One of our club members , Llew McGivern, has created some no contact orienteering courses in Lloyd Elsmore Park, Pakuranga, which will be set up for tomorrow and Sunday (2/3 May).
Location: Lady Marie Drive, Pakuranga. Parking is available in the carparks between the hockey club and Rugby club off Lady Marie Drive.
Start/ finish location: is at the trees opposite the carpark next to the children’s playground in front of the Rugby club.
There are 6 courses ranging from hard to easy, and two sprint courses. The courses can be downloaded as pdf files from the Sancta Maria College Orienteering Facebook page
Please note that courses cross Park roads that may have traffic. Please be alert, and conscious – GIVE WAY to cars and vehicles. The idea here is to have an orienteering run in the safe environment of a local park during lockdown.
There is no manned start or finish. Start and finish at what ever time is convenient. You will need to time yourself. Should any control be missing, please feedback, as they are on public property. The controls are 5cm x 5cm printed Orienteering flags. The controls are only markers so there is nothing to touch or any symbol to write down.
Please feel free to let others know how you went, and what your time is – a bit of fun and running in the park!
