Spring 6/12 hour event: Saturday 31 October: registrations opening soon

P1040712__640x480_.jpgSpring into Bondo State Forest for the 6 hour or 12 hour rogaine.  It is all in native forest and the local brumbies have made some wonderful tracks for you.  The HH is centrally located and there are plenty of camping spaces.  It’s about a 2 hour drive west of Canberra.  We would love you to stay overnight. Why not enjoy the campfire and Hartley food and help collect controls the next morning?  Riding brumbies on the course is allowed however you must stay with your Bond 00 team mates.  Miss Moneypenny at the admin tent will give you extra points if you take the brumby home with you.

Mid-winter 4 hour defies bleak forecast

IMGP0999.jpgSixty-one teams defied dire forecasts to compete in the mid-winter 4 hour event. They were blessed with relatively benign weather, but it was definitely very wet and treacherous under foot. Snow was visible on surrounding hills. (Lots of photos of the event are available on Smugmug).

Thomas Banks and Thomas Brazier emerged as strong overall winners with 1730 points ahead of Mark Euston and James Bailie on 1640. Julie Quinn and David Baldwin finished third and took honours in the mixed with 1610. Supervets Mike Hotchkis and Neil Hawthorne came in fourth with 1550, while Laure Gauthiez Putallaz, Alice Bates and Sarah Buckerfield won the women’s open and the award for the most colourful clothes with 1450. Hannah and Alistair McClusky won the family event with 890.  Full results are here.


Thank you to all participants who braved the weather and for making a great event, especially our NSW friends. Our many thanks to all the volunteers who made it all possible, including the setters and vetters Doug Collier, Neets Pluschke, Damien Ayers and Glenn Bridgart, and to Ron Simpson who masterfully managed the computer. A particular thank you to Susie Sprague, who once more cheerfully and capably led the team.

We now look forward to the metrogaine on 16 August and the ACT 8/24 champs over 5-6 September.

Upcoming Navigation Workshop

Book now! The biennial navigation workshop will be held on the weekend of the 20th and 21st of June. This is an awesome opportunity for experienced and novice rogainers alike. You will be placed in a small group with people of similar fitness and experience. This will enable your coach to tailor your learning as much as possible. Coaches will volunteer their time and with the mix of rogainers in the ACT, and you can expect some super-knowledgable helpers.


Saturday will see you practising your skills locally in the field both in daylight and dark hours. This will be complemented by a session on map and route planning. Sunday will see you participate in a 3 hour mini rogaine at Googong where you can put it all together.


Be there or be square! Entries are now open!
