More than 1050 people have entered for some or all of the events in the Carnival.

The team are now working on creating the start lists and bibs. Maps are getting the final tweaks ready for the printer. Helpers lists are being prepared. Portable toilets and tents are booked, caterers have been locked in, first aid arranged and everything else we can think of so you can have a fantastic time. 

There are still some options that you can enter…

Enter On Day

Got FOMO? Don’t worry, you can still be a part of the excitement, action and spectacle of the biggest orienteering event in the Southern Hemisphere! At most events you can Enter on the Day (EOD). You’ll have a choice of two or three courses – Hard, Moderate or Easy. All you need to do is visit Registration, pay the entry fee (cash or card), and head to the Start, within the times listed for the day’s event. You will use the same maps and courses as the pre-entered competitors, and your splits printout will allow you to see how you went. All the details can be found at this link:
