Teams from across Australia & New Zealand Battle it Out
There are three Australian Schools Championships – Sprint, Long and Relay. Over 200 teen students are expected to compete with teams capped at 20 students each.
Only students in officially recognised teams or who are otherwise ‘endorsed’ are eligible to enter (see below). Other students will be able to participate socially and even run the same courses in the Turbo Chook 3 Days.
Schools Champs Competition Classes:
Junior Girls & Boys: born 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009
Senior Girls & Boys: born 2003, 2004, 2005
Entry to Schools Champs:
Entry into these championships is through selection in state or New Zealand teams only. And all entries will be made by team managers, which means that individual students should not enter these events independently.
Students not selected in their state or New Zealand team might nevertheless be able to enter the races independently as “endorsed” runners. These students will run the same courses that will be used for the schools team runners. Students who wish to enter as “endorsed” runners will need to gain the endorsement of their state orienteering organisation (contact your state/NZ officials) and then enter direct via Eventor as follows:
- Eventor – the event to enter: Australian Schools Championships – Series Entry for Independent Students from Australia & New Zealand
- Enter by 5 August
- If you already entered your child in the Turbo Chook 3 Days, please email Meisha @ email@example.com
Schools Bulletins will contain further technical nitty gritty & practical tips about the events and will be published here nearer to the Carnival.
