AR 'Metrogaine' - Norwood
11 October 2011
Yes! Another Metrogaine Jo'burg. This third event will take you through the leafy and interesting suburbs of Norwood and Houghton in central Johannesburg.
You will have a limited time (one hour or 90-minutes) to walk, jog or run to as many controls as possible. You set you own pace and choose your own route.
The map is a regular street map BUT, street names and identifying features have been removed. Only basic navigation is needed to locate checkpoints using the clues provided. Yes, even teens could handle this on their own. Compass skills are not required.
Controls are assigned a points value. Those that are closer to the start have a lower points allocation than those further away. Yes, you do have to work harder for checkpoints with lots of points. Your ultimate objective is to get the most number of points, not necessarily to visit the most number of physical controls.
The most important consideration is that you are "home" before your time is up. You will be penalized (heavily!) for each minute that you are late.
