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.

Paddy Pallin event provides great rogaining terrain

12593696_959394134113794_395863496707098470_o.jpgThe eastern side of the Tallaganda Range provides magnificent rogaining country. This year at Kindervale competitors traversed rolling grazing country and pine plantations, and stretched hamstrings leaping numerous creek crossing. 

Martin Dent and Rob Walter cleared the course in 5 hours 35 minutes, ahead of mixed open winners Clare Lonergan and Kieran Macdonell. Judi Barton and Danealle Gilfillan took home the women's open trophy.

Many thanks to all our volunteers who made the course happen, property owners, Paddy Pallin and the Jerangle caterers for fine munch.

2016 kicks off with a great twilight event

IMGP1513.jpgWe got the year off to a great start last Saturday with our twilight event. A strong and deep list of teams participated, with Martin Dent and rogaining novice Mark Bourne taking out the honours. Six teams cleared the course, with Martin and Mark first home in 2 hours 20 minutes. Full results are here.


Many thanks to Dane Roberts, Tom Banks and all the other volunteers who made this event happen. Our thanks also to the Kama Scouts for their catering and the use of the hall as hash house. And thank you, too, for participating.


If you have any photos of the event, we would love to post them on our smugmug page. If you can provide photos, please contact Jonathan.


Our eyes now turn to the Paddy Pallin event on 20 March. More information coming soon on that.
