Burma Road Start

START AND FINISH:

Start and finish at the pink triangle on the map. There are two starts: this one on Burma Road and another on Cannington Road.

MARKERS:

The markers you are looking for are 10 cm x 10 cm orange/white plates, like the example shown below. Each marker has a number on it which is the same as that shown on the map. There are 25 markers in total. Each marker can be found at the very centre of the pink control circle, and it is your job to find them as quickly and efficently as possible!

IDEAS FOR COURSES:

Either take a photo of the map above, or download a .pdf from www.dunedinorienteering.org/about-orienteering/permanent-courses

An easier loop, approximately 2 km, connects the following markers in this order:

START -- 2 -- 30 -- 5 -- 6 -- 7 -- 8 -- 13 -- 27 -- 18 -- 12 -- 11 -- 10 -- FINISH

A harder loop, approximately 4km with some steep climbs, connects the following markers in this order:

START -- 13 -- 7 -- 30 -- 29 -- 26 -- 19 -- 21 -- 22 -- 25 -- 15 -- 6 -- 2 -- FINISH

Rogaine-style orienteering: Marker numbers correspond to their points values. Spend 10 minutes planning your optimal route to collect as many points as possible.

  • How many points can you collect in 30 minutes?
  • How many points can you collect in 60 minutes?
