Rutherford Marketplace & McDonald's are WEST of the turn off into Aberglasslyn Road from the New England Highway (see directions below).

Easiest route from Newcastle is to get onto the New England Highway at Maitland heading North West. 1km after the big Hungry Jack's roundabout turn right into Aberglasslyn Road (at the Rutherford Hotel). Drive 2kms then turn right into McKeachies Drive at the Woolworths complex, then 4th right into Coolabah Street then 2nd left into Redgum Circuit.

McKeachie's Run is a new subdivision with wide main streets & lots of walking & bike paths. Part of the map extends to Aberglasslyn which includes hills, views, wetlands & parklands. It should be a fast enjoyable map. Worth the drive !!! 

We will be using electronic timing which will mean more accurate times and scores, less work for volunteers and fast results publication for competitors. If you have your own SI stick or P Card then please bring it along to all street events, otherwise you can hire a P Card or SI Stick at each event for just $2. P Cards and SI Sticks will also be available for sale.

Important Note: Newcastle Orienteering recommends that all competitors wear bright clothing or reflective gear throughout the season to enable drivers to see you especially if you are running near dusk. Please also take care when crossing roads and use recommended crossing points on busy roads. We also wish to remind competitors that listening to an ipod (or similar) while on course can be a distraction that may cause you to not hear an emergency warning or similar and as such are not allowed during these events for your safety.
