South Coast glory for ACT Champions Print E-mail

Dane Roberts, helped by the other setters and vetters Jonathan Miller, Graham Atkins, Keith Conley and Tom Brazier, set a course to amaze and challenge everyone. Rogainers in both the 8 and 24 hr events were able to sample the amazing Murramarang National Park's tall spotted gums, rainforest vines and palms, coastal scenery (including orcas offshore), and ticks. Some teams crossed under the highway to the South Brooman State Forest to find open shady gullies and dry spurs.

Congratulations to Harry Andrews and Thomas Larkin who won the 8 hr event from Lee Rice and Craig Cowan. Congratulations to David Baldwin and Julie Quinn who are the 2017 ACT Champions (overall). Ronnie Taib and David Williams are the 2017 ACT Mens Champions and Ellen Braybon and Nicole Mealing are the 2017 Womens Champions. Special mention to the super effort of our Victorian friends Merv Trease and Vic Sedunary who took out the Mens Ultravet, Mens Supervet, Mens Vets and were second in the Open Mens! Other winners and preliminary results are on the event page, photos on the Smugmug site, and Strava Fly-bys of some teams.

Thank you to all the other helpers Glenn Bridgart, Jiaying Goh, Mark Jenkins.

ACT champs just around the corner Print E-mail

The rogaining calendar is nearly over for another year (boo hoo). You'd better clear your diary for the last event of 2017 to be held on the 4th and 5th of November, the ACT champs. There are 8 and 24 hour options. The event will be held at the beautiful Murramarang National Park, just north of Bateman's Bay. With popular camping areas, Pretty Beach, Pebbly Beach and Depot Beach all nearby, why not make a weekend of it? Or if you prefer, take the ACTRA organised bus (only $25 or concession $20) and snooze away on your way home after a long night running.

Entries are now open!

Winners everywhere at the day/night/cycle Print E-mail

There were so many categories at the rogaine events over this event, that you almost had to opt out to not be placed in one. Kirrikee in the southern highlands was dubbed the hash house of the century with hot showers, flushing toilets and comfy stretchers in the fixed tents. It was a champion way to celebrate Father's Day, with super weather and a varied course. Special mention to the ANU students (almost 200 of them) who navigated the night course with an interesting array of head torches and who brought with them a fabulous youthful enthusiasm. ANU followed up with a 2nd overall in the night event - Brad Carron Arthur, Oliver Lilford and Anthony Ricci. Lee Rice, Dane Roberts and Tom Brazier took out star of the event award winning overall on Saturday night and managing to clear the course on bikes on Sunday (2nd overall behind Seb Dunne and rogainer novice Adam Franklin). Also clearing the course by bike were Julie Quinn and David Baldwin (1st mixed veteran, 3rd overall). The day foot course was won by Thomas Etheridge and William Tribe.  Links to the results and photos.

Michael Reed's race report and Greg Bacon's race report are attached.

Thanks goes to course setter Steve Hanley, vetters Andrew Rowe, Gail Sutton and Graham. Also to Brad Vallette who coordinated the ANU students admirably, Glenn Bridgart, Lisa Cutfield, Keira Doherty, Tom Banks and Pat Meithke. The Hartley team did their usual stirling job with catering and fun was had by all. See you at our last event of the year on 4th November, the ACT champs.

Cracking day for the metrogaine Print E-mail

Canberra turned on another stunning late winter day for the metrogaine – this time through the city's western suburbs between the Molonglo and Murrumbidgee Rivers. Participants enjoyed expansive views from north Weston over the new Molonglo Valley suburbs, and most managed to navigate through Weston Creek and Kambah between the coffee stops. Family teams discovered that children's playgrounds have come a long way over the decades (since some of us started rogaining anyway), but Stephen Goggs’s diverting course also offered the time-honoured challenge of scaling the heights of the Canberra Nature Park at Mt Arawang, Mt Taylor and McQuoid's Hill in Tuggeranong. Special mentions go to overall winner Martin Dent, Women’s Open winner Susie Sprague, Colleen Mock – whose score gave her 4th 2nd and two 1st places in different age classes, and the unsung but thoroughly wet heroics of 14th placed Graham Atkins, who managed to rescue his daypack from floating down the Molonglo River but not his map – tricky problem when you are in a solo team! Look here for provisional results and here for photos of the event.

Thanks to all who made the day happen including setters/vetters, Stephen Goggs and Alex Tyson, on the day helpers and caterers, Hartley Lifecare.
