The Sydney Sprint Orienteering race at UTS Kuring Gai on Sunday, 5 February 2017 is part of a series of short course sprints (2.5km to 3km) with lots of controls and lots of changes of direction, and held mainly in urban environments (uni campuses, former hospital sites, sporting complexes etc).
"Sprint" is the newest format in orienteering. Think of it as the T20 of orienteering. At the elite level it is meant to be fast and furious, where an error of even 10 seconds could mean the difference between first and fourth placings!
