It’s time for the second edition of World MAZE Race. On May 27-29 you have the possibility to take part in MAZE Orienteering world-wide.
Imagine the same maze and the same course at the same time in major cities around the world: London, New York, Buenos Aires, Singapore, Sydney, Beijing, Cairo, Paris, as well as small cities and villages. What a challenge and what an event! It’s soon time for the next World MAZE Race, and you can be a very important piece of the puzzle to get this fabulous event closer to the Olympics!
It’s time for the second World MAZE Race right here in Ku-Ring-Gai at Bicentennial Park, West Pymble. This is an international initiative with the same courses offered across the world on the same weekend. The MAZE Race is 100m long with 12 check points. There will be simultaneous events in Australia at Rouse Hill Public School and Hunter School of Performing Arts in Newcastle. The timing allows organisers to compare race times from other events in Australia and the other world events. Race the maze and be the local, Bold Horizons or World Champion Maze Racer. Or, just enjoy the mind and body challenge and make the most of the experience! Everyone is welcome with course options for all ages and experience levels. In 2021, Kas Gregory from Newcastle was the local Aussie champ as well as being crowned the Senior Men World Champion.
Event Date: Saturday 28 May 2022
Venue: Bicentennial Park, West Pymble (Prince Of Wales Dr, West Pymble NSW 2073). Meet in the centre of the park by the playground.
Start Window: 9:30am to 11am (you can start any time within this time window)
Courses: Warm Up, Short Line, Long Line, and Score. If it’s your first time, we recommend starting out with the Warm Up and you will quickly get the idea of what to do. After that, if you want more, the event team will help you register on a second course for the morning (there’s no charge for the second course). There’s more information on courses available on the Saturday Orienteering Series page. Each week, there will also be a relay starting around 11am. Two or three people per team are recommended. Unique to this week, will be maze courses as well!
Groups: Families and friends are very welcome to complete a course as a group. If participating as a group, kindly enter at least one member of the group for a paid or host school student ticket. Each of these entries entitles that person to a course map, timing chip and recorded result. Accompanying family members and friends who do not need a map, timing chip or recorded result should kindly register as Group Members.
