Thank you Sofie for volunteering to Organising and setting this event.  

LOCATION

Starting from Ocean Grove and included Barwon Heads and some of 13th Beach. 

Course

The course has just 100 question and multiple choice answer checkpoints.   With 100 Checkpoints across Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads Rogainers will find few checkpoints with travelling distance of over 1 km.    The questions are intended to confirm your visit to the checkpoint and not test your IQ.  Our setter is looking for checkpoints at points of interest.    Mountain bikes or Hybrid/Adventure bikes are most suitable for this event. 

Map

Based on the Melway and reproduced (with their permission) at 1:20,000 standard book scale (TBC).   Any errors found on the Map you can report to Melway.  All the street names are included but there are no contour lines.
