I am less than amused at our levels of illness and injury :) - just want to get back out there consistently.

Do like seeing people use it though as otherwise it just sits there as a wasted resource.

Hoping the cruise control courses change the usage a bit but well see!

Are there other people using it? I'm not sure as the only people I see are those I have 'connections' with so no idea if there are non-orienteers using it.

a handful of people but generally irregular use - you would see more people on leaderboards even if they were not connections.

Depends if they live near me though and do the same courses. Actually one thing I like about the two week course opening is that if and when I get back to running twice a week, I can run two different courses in the same week (provided they aren't as far away as Alkimos) and overlap a course to the next week to run it again with another course. Only have a few weeks left before we're off for seven weeks though so won't be using it for a while again...

see if you just went to Sydney or Melbourne you could continue using it ahah.

I'll be in Melbourne this weekend.
May 30, 2018 6:52 AM # 
Feel free to run one there :) you’ll be the first to do so in Melbourne

Bryce do you have any courses in centennial park ?
May 30, 2018 10:18 AM # 
Closest one is Randwick (expired). Courses tend to need streets to work.

Ori I can make one in centennial park if you wish - just let me know what type of course and any particular side for the start.

Ricky is right about the current closest.
May 30, 2018 11:36 AM # 
If you make one in Melbourne I'll have a go.
May 30, 2018 11:51 AM # 
There are hundreds in Melbourne already.

Ricky’s faster than me again!

150+ in Melbourne but only been running for a month and a bit so only a handful open and available but they continue launch each week.

I’ll be doing some more courses in Melbourne once I finish the current Perth deployment.

Let me know if you have any questions as you use it

Sign up!
May 30, 2018 2:10 PM # 
I am signed up :)
May 30, 2018 2:13 PM # 
Next you can come and run all the free courses in Perth.
May 30, 2018 2:23 PM # 
haha Jayne has 3 free to run in Melbourne plus the 3 free passes which come with a new account - should give you a good taster of the courses available.

I think I am going to have to put Ricky on commission haha.

I think only the Northcote one is near me at the moment but I'll keep an eye out

Yeah, there is also the expired Brunswick east line course which is close to you, and Ivanhoe line gets released on the 15th outside fo that the trial course you've unlocked is open.

There are a few others scattered around you but they are a while off being released.
