Adventure Events

Urban Series: Emmarentia

Detailed event information
Event information sheets are published about two weeks before each event. These give directions and parking information in addition to brief details about the terrain (grassy, paved, buildings, vegetation) and any special entry information. Please check the calendar on the orienteering website (www.orienteering.co.za) to download relevant event information sheets.

Pre-registration online
One of the most challenging aspects of organising orienteering events is knowing how many people are going to show up and how many are doing which course. We encourage you to pre-register before each event so that we can ensure that we have sufficient maps – this really aids our planning.

Courses and distances
Each event offers four courses to cater for all ages and abilities.
Men’s course: perfect for participants with some navigation experience; distance is 3-4km (winning time of <20 minutes)
Women’s course: perfect for participants with some navigation experience; distance is 3-4km (winning time of <20 minutes)
Novice: a 2km course with easy navigation, especially for newcomers. This fun course is not too challenging technically or physically.
Kiddies: this 400m course is for young children, accompanied by a parent. Using a map they’ll find cartoon characters and receive a lollipop at the end.

Times
Participants are set off at intervals – not a mass start – and there’s no need to be up at the crack of dawn.

Registration: from 08h30 to 09h30
Starts: from 09h00 to 10h00
Courses close / prize giving: 12h00

Please ensure that you register and start within these defined time periods.
