SA Club Relays 2015

Sunday, 23 August 2015

The SA Club Relays were held today at Keithcott Farm in the northeastern suburbs, with the Southern Arrows running this event for the 10th successive year.  A display of maps from the previous 9 relays was on show. 

The Keithcott Farm map is a mixture of a complex school campus and adjacent open bushland and suburbs. Hence the courses were a mix of challenging navigation between the buildings of the school grounds, and more open running in the adjacent open space area.  Many orienteers were especially challenged in the former area.  See example map -  Relyas2AC2jpg.


Teams of 2 competed 2 legs each, except for the 12 and under teams where each runner completed on leg only. 

Results are available here.

The team competition was won for the first time by Yalanga, with Tintookies in second place.
