Nightgaine

8 hour
24th-25th September 2005
10pm Saturday - 6am Sunday


Course Description

The event location is the Namadgi National Park, centered on the Yankee Hat Car Park on old Boboyan Rd. It is essentially a night time repeat of the 2005 Paddy Pallin event, using a few of the same control sites, but also many new ones, and sticking mainly to the cleared valley areas. Four major watercourses (Rendezvous Ck, Middle Ck, Bogong Ck and Hospital Ck) traverse the area.

The going is generally easy, from (some) open forest to (mainly) very fast open grassland. A careful route choice may be necessary to avoid getting wet feet at least once. The altitude variation is generally less than 50 m, but a few controls are up to 150m above the valley floor. There are numerous tracks in the southern portion of the map, which are generally well mapped but include a few unmapped ones, and fewer tracks in the northern portion. The tracks, including the current and old Boboyan Rds, provide very acceptable safety bearings and escape routes. The map is premarked at 1:25,000, with 10 m contours, and is about A3 size.

The nightgaine caters for both the serious competitor, as well as for the novice to night time rogaining, as it is in a mainly open and fairly 'friendly' area. Persons with little night time experience can use it as a training exercise.

Unfortunately, there is no camping permitted at the Hash House site for non competitors, and competitors should not bring or erect individual tents at the site.
