Australian Three Days 2015 - Entries Open

Wednesday, 22 October 2014

The Australian Three Days will run over Easter in 2015 - with Prologue event at Jamestown and the three bush events in the area from northern Meridee, through Bri-Glen and a new extension to the north (Tundarri) and a new map on the northern extension of these areas (Mulga Valley)

For more information about the events, the maps and everything else you need to know see the pages at http://sa.orienteering.asn.au/AusThreeDays2015/

All events and two events closer to Adelaide are now open for entry - see the link from the above page.

The early bird entries close 31 Dec 2014 (with the lowest fees), with the general closing date 1st March 2015.  Late entries will be accepted up to 13 March 2015. 

If you take you orienteering seriously, then the 5 year age A classes are all being run.  For the more recreational or for those who want a shorter course we have an extended selection of AS and B classes for adults (21AS, 35AS, 45AS, 55AS. 65AS, Open B and 45B).  We are encouraging as many SA orienteers as possible to enter and support the organising team who have been working towards this event for the last couple of years.

 All the maps are close to being final and the course planners are working on the courses.
