Suburban Adventure Racing - Tue 18 Nov

Our group plans to take part in the Suburban Adventure Racing Series run by Eastern Suburbs Scouts. The group that run these events every Tuesday set up the activity, provide maps and training to youth members and leaders. There is no charge for youth members (but we note that some of the hosting groups provide catering after the event - so a $2 coin for a drink or sausage might be a nice way to end the evening).

Parents and families are welcome as well - but there is an initial joining fee of $5 per family for those that do wish to come along. Subsequent events are just $2 per adult.
