The Sydney Summer Series is an activity of Orienteering NSW

A series of running events timed over 45 minutes that involve visiting a variety of local features, or checkpoints. These checkpoints are marked on specially prepared orienteering maps that are used to help navigate your way around the local parks, streets and bush tracks where the events are held.
The checkpoints have different score values and the runners with the highest scores at the end of 45 minutes (in their age classes) are the winners.
The Summer Series events are for everyone, attracting walkers and joggers through to champion runners. If you like running or walking with a navigational challenge, you will love the Summer Series.
What to Bring: You don't need any gear apart from your normal jogging shoes and appropriate clothing (shorts and T-shirt are fine). Compasses (if needed) can be hired at the event and instruction is available to all first timers.
Cost: Entry fees, including a map, are $12 for Open and above, and $7 for Juniors. Non-members $3 extra. Electronic timing sticks will be used at most events. These can be hired for $3-4. Spare maps are normally an extra $2 each.
Facilities: All venues will have drinking water available. In most cases toilet facilities are close by.
Start times: Start times for most events are between 4.30pm and 6.45pm, but some have an earlier start option too. All events are 'on' regardless of the weather.
Prizes: Prizes will be awarded to the placegetters in a series of age categories at the last event in March. Progressive results will be on display at each event and on this site with the best 12 scores counting for the final tally and prizes.
Groups: Although we prefer individual entries, there are reasons some competitors prefer to run as a group – parents and small children for instance. When a group want to enter and run together,  ALL competitor’s names must be clearly noted on the registration card. This is to ensure compliance with the OANSW insurance policy. Note that group results are to be included in the result listings at each event but will NOT count in the overall age group progressive point-scoring.
