Metrogaine 6hr - 12 August 2018

Well it’s that time of year again, time to postpone that weekend skiing or sunny escape to the warmer parts of the country because ACTRA’s Metrogaine is coming to the inner north of Canberra!

Fergus Macleod and friends have set a cracking course between Belconnen and North Canberra that’s sure not to disappoint.   The hash house will be located within the University of Canberra, allowing access to the nearby Gossan Hill and Lake Ginninderra.  For those after more of a challenge, the course will extend towards Black Mountain, The Pinnacle and surrounds.

Plenty of options for families or teams wishing to enjoy that occasional playground or café stop as well as students looking to brush up on their navigational proficiency.  

As always, the Metrogaine can be entered as a solo competitor or in a team. We look forward to seeing you all there!

Kowen Forest Winter 4 hr - 15 July 2018

The Winter 4 hr lived up to its name with a frosty start. The sun broke through at the start and turned into a beautiful cool day. Many people enjoyed a well-set course by Matthew Hollingworth that took in pine forest of varying ages and the open native bush on the escarpment above Sutton Road. A special mention to the many families who came out. Congratulations to the overall winners Brad Carron-Arthur and Richard Dunley, and the Ross, Sandy, Scott and Leanne Wilkinson who won the family category. Thank you to all the volunteers and an apology from Hartley Lifecare to those who missed out on food at the end when they ran short.

Kowen Forest Wintergaine

The 2018 Winter Rogaine returns to Kowen Forest, but don't be fooled. We have a fresh focus on the Kowen Escarpment, with almost half the controls located in delightfully open native forest adjacent the pine plantation. The rolling terrain and creek system of the escarpment is balanced by flatter ground and numerous tracks within the plantation, providing something for all tastes and abilities. Some interesting watercourse features and views round out the course. To top it off, our map features exquisite 5-metre contours from a recent aerial survey.

Barkley's Race Report: ACT Champs 2018

 

After spending the early part of the event helping at the Hash House, I took the opportunity to head out on Sunday morning with a team who had done 6 hours on Saturday afternoon and slept all night.  I can’t say I blame them; even I refused to come out of my sleeping bag on the Sunday morning.

 

So it was onto the back of one of my new team members and off, for what they said was going to be a short easy Sunday stroll to add a few extra controls to their score.  After hearing about their navigational wins of the previous day, I was somewhat surprised when they completely overshot our first intended target.  I suspect they were trying to impress me and overstating their credentials.  When I heard them say its ok we’ll grab it on the way back, it was time for me to step in and do the navigating.
