2017 Australian Rogaining Championships 6-7 May entries are open. Print E-mail
P1060005__1_.jpgACTRA is organising this year's Australian Rogaining Championships, which will be held just north of Cooma. The area is ideal rogaining country: attractive open woodlands allowing fast and comfortable travel, with views towards the Snowy Mountains. Former world rogaining category champions, Ron Simpson and Jean Douglass, have set the course to the high standards ACTRA has maintained with major events.
 
This will be ACTRA's signature event for 2017.
 
We have created a separate website chock-full of information and photos, and this is where you enter. Make sure you plan this event into your diary.

Friday 17 February Twilight and ANU O week events
Entries open

ACTRA is starting 2017 with a bang. On Friday 17 February, we will be holding two events. First, a taster 2 hour O-week event for the newly-oriented ANU students (2.30 - 4.30pm). Then a 3 hour twilight event for all-comers (6.30 -9.30pm).

Both events will be held on that old-favourite, Black Mountain, so it is super-accessible to all. Entries are now open for the twilight event at, so enter here by Sunday 12 February.

ACTRA First Aid Course Print E-mail
images.jpgIt is important that we have suitably qualified first aiders at all ACTRA events. ACTRA therefore runs a two-day remote area first aid course with accredited trainers every second year. We are running the next course over the weekend 18/19 March 2017. We are planning to hold the course at Blue Range Hut near Urriarra.
 
ACTRA will pay all fees for the course, but we ask all participants to volunteer as first aid officers for at least one ACTRA event over the following two years.
 
If you are interested in participating in the course, please contact Claire at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Scoop: Barkley has found a partner Print E-mail

IMG_1086.jpgThe trending news in from the Spring event is that Barkley has a new 'friend'. Spotted lying on the event map, the two koalas were resplendent in their orange sleeping bags. Barkley declined to comment on the gossip as he scurried up the nearest eucalypt, and the ACTRA Publicity Officer said the Committee wished to respect Barkley's privacy.

In other news from the Spring event, Claire Edwards and Susie Sprague set a blistering pace to take out the 6 hour event, while Martin Dent, Sam Burridge and Brad Hetharia did what they do well and took out the 12 hours, covering at least 43 kilometres.

It was great also to see visting international orienteering coaches, Katie Reynolds and Charlotte Watson (third in the 6 hour) and Jacob Lindstam (sixth in the 12 hour) savouring the joys of our wonderful sport.
