Bulletin 1 for both the first round of Silva National Orienteering League events (Races 1,2,3) to be held in Brisbane on 22nd and 23rd February
and the second round of events (Races 4,5) to be held near Beechworth on 22nd and 23rd March
are now available.
The first round of Silva NOL events will include a mixed sprint relay for teams of either two women or two men from states to be held in the centre of Brisbane at Roma Street Parklands. There will also be a sprint qualification event for both senior and junior elites on Sat (PM) from which the top five from each heat will qualify for the A final to be held on Sunday (AM). The maps for these two sprints will be Qualification-Griffith University and the Final- Kelvin Grove Campus of the Qld University of Technology.
In March sees the Silva NOL events return to the complex goldmining map “Yackandandah” for a middle distance race and on the Sunday a return to the granite rock of “Kangaroo Crossing” for a long distance race.
These events provide all elite athletes with a great opportunity to demonstrate their form in all the three disciplines leading into the Easter 2014 carnival of major events.
