Three events in the Renmark area - ANZAC Long Weekend

on .

Three events were held in the Renmark area over the Anzac weekend, possible with a Monday public holiday in some states including SA.  Two of the events were National Orienteering League events, so many junior and senior elites attended.  In addition a number of interstate orienteers in other age groups attended, pushing the numbers for the Saturday and Sunday events over 200.

The Saturday afternoon event was a Middle Distance at Bunyip Reach, with the map extended from that used in 2018.  For elites this was also a World Ranking event, with juniors and seniors doing the same course. Steve Cooper set some challenging courses through the complex erosion gullies. The event was run by Yalanga Orienteers and the controller was Phil Hazell.  For results and splits see the links here.

Course 6

Sunday’s SA Long Distance Championships included a mass start loop race for the 4 NOL groups (senior men and women, junior men and women in classes 20E and 18A).  The 2 senior classes and junior men had a run through after a short first loop to collect the map for a longer challenging second loop.  Other classes used the traditional interval start.  All courses, which covered the more sublte terrain on the ridge top into the compelx erosion gullies flanking the ridge, were set by Simon Uppill, with the controller Jenny Casanova and the event by Onkaparinga Hills Orienteers.   For results and splits links here  Mass start for each of the 4 elite courses below, and the course for the a second loop of the M21E course.
