Sydney Schools Series

Each high school team has 3 persons.  Each person in the team runs one of the 3 separate courses.  Each of the 3 courses are a different grade (easy to moderate navigation). The times for each team member are added up to form a team score.  The team with the lowest combined time wins the event. 

Teams can be a mixture of boys and girls, all boys or all girls.  High schools can field as many teams as they want. 

There will be a presentation at the end of the 6 events for the champion high school, winning teams and leading individuals.

There will be 6 inter-school competition events in 2008.  They are:
