Paddy Pallin rogaine Sunday 5 March 10am-4pm: entries are now open

This year we return to the historic Orroral Valley, with its wide expanses of open kangaroo fields. The Hash House will be placed at the site of the former Orroral space tracking station. See more photos from the course setters.


The Paddy Pallin rogaine is generally our most popular event each year, providing a great introduction to our sport for novices, as well as a solid test for the experienced. Then there is there bonus of Paddy Pallin equipment give-aways at the end, and the end-of-event feast.


Entries are now open, so enter here by Wednesday 1 March.

2017 Australian Rogaining Championships 6-7 May entries are open.
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.

Scoop: Barkley has found a partner

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. 

More photos on our Facebook page or at our Smugmug site. Full results are here.

Barkley (2)'s excellent Spring 2016 rogaine adventure

image001.png

I was really excited to be going out for 12 hours; I could hardly contain myself, well actually I couldn’t contain myself and I jumped out of Natalie’s pack after only 5 minutes on the trail. Fortunately a kind soul noticed and returned me to Natalie. After that, I took good care to hold on tight and only came out at controls, or to smell the flowers, or look for something to eat…

 

Here is me in my favourite pouch-almost as good as being with my real mum when I was just a joey.
