Orienteering Victoria's "Sprint Into Spring" event at Victoria University in Footscray, Melbourne is part of a series of short distance, fast paced orienteering races held in small, self contained areas with many complex features, such as parks or campuses. Maps are full colour and large scale, with a high level of detail
Sprint orienteering is about thinking and racing hard simultaneously, focusing on quick decision making. These events are fairly simple to navigate at a walk or slow jog, but the task is more demanding at high speed, especially when faced with multiple legs featuring constant changes of direction and route choice. If you run fast then make sure that it's in the right direction!
