New MapRun courses at Middle Head

Bennelong's new Middle Head Sprint map is now live on the MapRun app. There are a few courses, the maps and reference info can be found here

Each course visits key areas of natural beauty and historical importance e.g. each course visits the Outer Fort (image above) for a fast and frenzied tour. 

New MapRun courses at Seaforth

Bennelong's new Seaforth map is now live on the MapRun app with a Short & Medium course, plus, a Long and Score course will be added soon. Given the current lockdown restrictions, these 2 new courses are a worthwhile objective to aid physical and mental well-being. Maps and reference info can be found here.


Hi all,

Congratulations to Curtis Pepper and Clyde McGhee for being selected in the NSW Schools team to compete in the Australian Schools Championships in Tasmania in September.

In Sunday's Metro League at Castle Hill, 4 of Bennelong's 5 teams won their match. The only team to go down was the previously undefeated Div 4 Harder team. The next round will be on 1st August at St Ives Showground.

While we were at Castle Hill some of our members were battling the cold and the bush up at Newnes Plateau in the Paddy Pallin Rogaine. Congratulations to Mel Cox in the Veteran Men, Julian Ledger in Super Vet Men and Katherine Cameron in Women, they were all 3rd in their division with their rogaining partners.
