The MetrO League is an annual inter-club competition for greater Sydney metropolitan clubs. The series is run from March through until August/September with events conducted on one Sunday morning per month.

Teams of five compete against each other. The fastest score of the ten runners earns 10 points and the slowest gets one point. The team with the most points wins the match.

Courses are of a Moderate (Divn 4-6) or Hard (Divn 1-3) standard and a variety of distances is offered. The winning time is set for 30-45 minutes depending on division, and most people are finished within an hour.
New team members are always welcome and should contact their club captain if they would like to participate.

At all events there are also courses that can be entered on the day by anyone. Entry on the day options include Very Easy courses for young children, Easy courses for older newcomers and more challenging courses for the experienced. There is a variety of distances so that young, adult, fit and less fit can all find a course that's right for them.

The Division 1 trophy (pictured) is named in honour of the late Frank Assenza, who started the MetrO League competition in 1994. 

"Frank would be thrilled and we are very proud of his orienteering achievements," his daughter Megan told us. "Please pass on my thanks to your committee and thanks for letting me know of this honour."

The 2023 Metro League rules are being updated and will be here once finished and approved. Link
