The Lewises are kindly organising minibus transport. We encourage you to make use of this sociable and economical travel option.

Course Information

If you would like to help your club team score points, you need to run the course for your age class and be a current member of a participating club.

Entry Details

QO subsidises relay team entries by 50%.

Please pay your half-price entry fee to the team organiser(s).

Registration & Start Times

Registration is via your club's team captain.

Start times are pre-allocated.

Compass Sport qualifier & final

Scores from the race will be used to determine not only who qualifies for the final but who wins the tournament. This is because the qualifier and final are being held simulaneously. The original qualifier, which QO was due to host in March at the Slades, was postponed due to heavy snow.

Our scores will also be used for the calculations in determining who wins the tournament.
