Teachers, parents, volunteers and other wonderful helpers can have a run around a course once all the students have started. This is usually by 5:00pm. Starts will close at 5:30pm.

You can choose from the following courses:

  • Senior Boys course (2.7-3.0km)
  • Year 7/8 Boys course (1.7-2.0 km)
  • As well as being longer, the senior course involves long route choice options and more technical control finding skills. The Year 7/8 course is shorter and has easier navigation.

If you know prior to the event that you will run, please send us the completed entry form so we can have you ready to go in our system on the day.

On the day entries are welcome.

Public courses will only be available at the afternoon event on finals day.
