Biggest rogaine ever!

2016 winter rogaine at TidbinbillaClose to 300 people participated each day on Saturday and Sunday at this years winter 4 hour - ACTRA's biggest rogaine ever! The fabulous weather helped create a great day for everyone. In the ANU event on Saturday, David Baldwin, Eoin Farrell and Brad Vallette won with a convincing 950 points. On Sunday, Craig Cowan and Paul Imhoff won the day with 930 points. There were some great results from the younger members with Zoe Cuthbert and Lorien Allen winning the junior category with 450 points. Ella Cuthbert brought home her Dad, Paul to come in with 740 points, 3rd in the mixed open. With 580 points, Jessica Robson, Lee and Clare Rice (plus pram) took out the family category. This event was generously supported by the ACT government aiming at encouraging our younger members so it was fabulous to see 27 family teams out on the course. 

Thanks to everyone who made it happen, Glenn Bridgart for setting the course, vetters Jonathan Miller, Jean Douglass and Ron Simpson. Also to our ACTRA volunteers without whom the event couldn't have happened. Thanks to to all our helpers over the weekend from the ANU, particularly Jackson Bursill who coordinated the students.

Metrogainers sweep through Gungahlin

P60709_110459.jpgColleen Mock and her team delivered a metrogaine with all the ingredients for a great event: a delightful course through attractive streetscapes and urban bushland; excellent event documentation, and mild and dry Canberra weather. The event marked the 25th anniversay of the Gungahlin township, and the course visited a number of historic sites in the area.

Class shone through in the results. Four competitors cleared the course, with Martin Dent finishing ahead of Rob Walter, Matthew Crane and Paul Cuthbert. In the women's category, Clare Lonergan edged out Susie Sprague, while Keira Doherty and Tom Banks took out the mixed event. Full results are posted on our website; photos are at our Smugmug site.

Our thanks as always to the organisers and volunteers who brought us the event, and to Hartley Lifecare who once more produced a delicious post-event feast.

A pair of brown spectacles was left at the event. If they might be yours, please contact Colin at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Big turn out for ACT and intervarsity championship event

champs

Deua National Park around Snowball provided some brilliant rogaining country this year for the ACT 24hr Rogaining Championships, incorporating an 8 hr event and the 2016 Intervarsity Rogaining Championships. Over 215 people took part and the course provided them with a mix of mature open forest, open flat areas, hilly terrain and plenty of creeks, one of which needed to be forded at the start of the event. Nothing like starting with wet feet!

No-one managed to clear the course, but Rob Walter and Paul Cuthbert came very close taking, home the men’s open and men’s veterans categories. Gill Fowler and Jess Baker took home the women’s open trophy. The Intervarsity Championship was taken out by Thomas Etheridge and William Tribe from ADFA and Clayton Balmain and Grace Crane won the 8hr. See where a bunch of teams went on Strava.

Many thanks to all our volunteers who made it happen, the land owners and Hartley Lifecare for keeping everyone wellfed, especially in the challenging weather conditions on the Sunday.
