Moonlight Madness 2019

MM Start & Finish flagsMoonlight Madness, urban night orienteering by headlight or torchlight under a full moon, has returned for winter 2019.


This year we have 6 events (set by members of Garingal, Bennelong and WHO orienteering clubs) in the usual Sydney Summer Series format (30 controls, 45 minutes on a Wednesday night). Dates are chosen to be about the time of the Full Moon between April and September.


Course setters will be putting on an event that it is fun and enjoyable for anyone lunatic enough to don a headlamp or carry a torch and jog around somewhere in Sydney finding moonlit control features in the dark!


Maps will be 1:7500 on A4 for ease of readability at night.  The best orienteers should just about get all 30 controls inside 45 minutes every time - ideally, their only challenge is to beat the 45 minutes by clever route planning and execution.


Starts are between 5.30pm and 7pm with courses closing at 7.45pm when we go out to retrieve the markers - so you need to come back by 7.45pm because after then, there will  be no markers out there to look for!
