Parking:

Parking will be restricted. Please park, one car behind the other, as far left as possible along this road. Make sure there is room for traffic to move in the other direction. (Take care when walking to the assembly/ start area.) A turning area will be available at the head of the parking queue. Parking space will be limited so we strongly encourage car-pooling or riding a bike from the end of the old highway (sealed section), where there are several areas for parking.

14 Apr 2019 Parking

Courses:

VERY EASY (1.7km) and EASY (2.2km) will have the usual point to point courses. (Visit controls in numerical order.)

MODERATE (3.0km), HARD SHORT ( 4.0km), HARD MEDIUM (5.1km), HARD LONG (7.1km) will have SCORE type courses. (i.e. Visit as many controls as you can, in any order you choose, within 1 hour.) You gain 1 point for each control you visit, but lose 1 point for each minute (or part thereof) of lateness. Those with the same number of points will be ranked, based on time taken. The course lengths given above are using the course planner’s optimum route. The distances given on control descriptions are if controls were visited in numerical order. Note: All four of these courses will use the same map. Moderate will visit any of the controls numbered (1 to 13), Hard short (1 to 16), Hard medium (1 to 21), and Hard long (1 to 24). There will be lines on the map to help show the boundary area for each course

Notes:

(a) The area includes sections of SPIKEY vegetation (usually shown as “Walk”). Suitable clothing should be worn.
(b) Pink cross-hatching over some tracks indicates that the track had been “ploughed”. Most of these tracks have been “smoothed” by continual trail bike use, in the 18 months since the ploughing.
(c) The area is frequented by trail bikes and 4WD vehicles. Be prepared to get out of their way.
(d) Hard long runners must treat the old rubbish dump area near Abermain as “ Out of Bounds”, as shown on the map.
(e) OLD STYLE SYMBOLS will be used. Tree-root mounds will be brown “T” (oriented), Check map legend on notice board.
(f) Magnetic north lines are now 300m apart.
(g) At least five helpers are needed to collect controls at each event.

SUNDAY 2nd June 2019 - NOY3

Fassifern Ridge

 

Directions: At the traffic lights on Toronto Road, Fennell Bay head west into Macquarie Road, then in 1.2 km park on the left hand (southern) side of the road adjacent to Croft Park. The assembly area will be at Croft Park.

Map: Fassifern Ridge 1:10,000 4 metre contours. Revised Ian Dempsey August 2017 with minor revisions by Steven Roberts June 2018 and April 2019. Black crosses show car wrecks. Black circles indicate wreckage.

Terrain: Undulating to very steep and mostly open forest. There’s an extensive track network, (some tracks have altered slightly and some older ones might be less recognisable) many parallel watercourses, and rock detail on the higher slopes. The lower gullies have some patches of slow run and walk.

Planner: Steven Roberts

Vetter: 

Start Location: Walk to the start is an easy 600m (allow 10 minutes). Please follow the streamers to the start area to ensure we avoid trespassing on an adjacent property. Follow the same streamers back from the finish. Please take extra care crossing Macquarie road on the way to the start and from the finish.

Courses:

There will be some steep climbs to the main ridges. Courses have been set to enjoy areas of open runnable forest (or track options). All Hard courses do have legs that involve contouring across steep slopes. The Very Easy, Easy and Moderate courses will navigate using suburban streets early in their course. The Very Easy course does not cross a road, however the others do. Please take care.

Course       Length(km)       Climb
String        
Very easy    2.0    96
Easy   2.3   96
Moderate short   2.5   108
Moderate long   3.5   152
Hard short   3.0   120
Hard Medium   4.5   200
Hard long   6.2   240
         

Entry Fees

Safety: The steeper slopes are gravelly – take care. Safety bearing is south towards the assembly area

Start times: 9:30 to 11:30am with course closure at 1pm. Please ensure you start your course with enough time to complete it prior to course closure
