Start 6:30pm- 7:30pm

Defiance Mill Park

Orienteering- Rush Hour-Join the Totally tropical orienteering club from Townsville for an adrenaline packed urban orienteering experience on foot from Defiance Mill Park.

Perfect learning for the main Towers Rush event, the TTOCER’S as they are affectionately known will be helping you understand how to best tackle the challenge as well as marking the clue sheets afterwards to identify who has the most points in the allocated time.

A little hint “brains before Braun”, spend the allocated time studying the map so you can identify where the bulk of the points will be found and you can plan a route to best get them all without losing points or time by being late.
