|Big turn out for ACT and intervarsity championship event|
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.
