Working Trials

For the 2014 Special Olympics National Games the Working Trials will be run outdoors in the grass paddock at Werribee Park. Click here for a sample layout of the trial course noting that there will be trees to go around which are not shown on the map. Due to the trees, the course will change slightly but the obstacles will be the same, with the exception of the water (No. 9), there will be a carpet to walk over instead of the water.  If the weather is inclement the event will be held indoors.
