Special Event

The last Auckland Orienteering Series event of the season is upon us.

There are a number of things different about this event, so please read the information below and most importantly, enter for the event early (now) so we can make sure things go smoothly.

Test Event for WMOC and Oceania

This event is being used to test out many procedures that will be used at Oceania and World Masters Games in 2017, including generation of start lists and the silent start. For this reason we are asking all competitors to pre-enter. 

Pre-entered participants will have an allocated start time and personalised bib (with name, race number, SI card (own or hired), start time etc on it), similar to that planned for the 2017 WMOC events. Payment (normal AOS fees, see below) will still be on-the-day at the club campermatic, as usual. If you have start requests (e.g., start early, start late, split starts) you can email them to the address below.

If you do not register for this event you can still enter on the day; however you will only be able to start after all of the pre-entered competitors have started. 

Club Champs for NWOC

NorthWest Orienteering Club is also using this event as their Club Championships.  NWOC members: make sure you enter the correct course if you want to race in their correct age grade.
