To mark World Orienteering Day, I'll be taking on the challenge of attempting to do orienteering events in four states/territories of Australia on the same day. The plan is as follows:
- start by doing a MapRunners event in Brisbane (Queensland) first thing in the morning.
- fly to Canberra, then do the Wednesday lunchtime event at Mount Ainslie (ACT) and cross the border to do a park event in Queanbeyan (New South Wales).
- fly on to Melbourne (Victoria) in time to do the Wednesday evening park/street event there.
In conjunction with this we're running a fundraiser for Australian national teams through the Australian Sports Foundation. If you'd like to sponsor me to do this, the donations page is here
. (Donations are tax-deductible for Australian taxpayers). Proceeds will be split between the WOC, JWOC and MTBO WOC teams.
