Mid winter rogaine 12 July going ahead Print E-mail

You are probably aware that the weather forecast is for a cold front to bring showers, cool temperatures and winds on Sunday (although it looks like the weather for the morning and early afternoon will be better than the late afternoon).

 

The event is proceeding. We do, however, repeat our advice that participants:

-          carry warm clothes and wet weather gear for the event

-          bring warm change of clothes and footwear for after the event

-          pay extra attention to the comfort of small children who are at greater risk of
hypothermia.

Remember that it is compulsory that ALL rogainers carry space blankets, and particularly for this event.

Please also take extra care on the unsealed roads within Kowen forest to account for the wet conditions.

Finally, a reminder that the gates on the access roads will be locked, other than between 7.45-10 (entry) and 2-4 (exit). We will endeavour to accommodate requests for early departures; please see the event organiser to arrange.

Upcoming Navigation Workshop Print E-mail

Book now! The biennial navigation workshop will be held on the weekend of the 20th and 21st of June. This is an awesome opportunity for experienced and novice rogainers alike. You will be placed in a small group with people of similar fitness and experience. This will enable your coach to tailor your learning as much as possible. Coaches will volunteer their time and with the mix of rogainers in the ACT, and you can expect some super-knowledgable helpers.

 

Saturday will see you practising your skills locally in the field both in daylight and dark hours. This will be complemented by a session on map and route planning. Sunday will see you participate in a 3 hour mini rogaine at Googong where you can put it all together.

 

Be there or be square! Entries are now open!

Autumn rogaine results available! Print E-mail

The Lower Cotter Catchment rogaines were held over the weekend of 18/19 April in the eastern parts of the Cotter catchment and the adjoining Tidbinbilla ranges. A brave band of 27 teams turned up for the 5hr foot only night event, and on Sunday another 21 teams fronted for the foot event and eight teams cycled that day. The weather was challenging for all events.

11152348_808825122504030_3181386036894239128_n.jpgThe winners of the event and recipients of the nightgaine trophy were Peter Preston and Tomas Krajca, who blitzed the field in an excellently executed course with 1760 points. There were close contests in both the mixed open and the minor placing of the male open event. Michael McCluskey and Charlotte Peterson finished only ten points ahead of Kieran Macdonell and Clare Lonergan, despite both teams finishing within a minute of each other after cut-off, to take out first place in the Mixed Open. We had some good participation from the family category too with James and Max Swann taking out first place. Parissa Poulis and Pat Meithke also had a great result taking out third place in the Women’s Open, as well as winning both Women’s Veterans and Supervets categories.

An extraordinary feature of the Sunday results was the domination by mixed teams, taking out the first six places in the foot event, which was won by Keira Doherty and Thomas Banks with 1820 points. Michael Reed and Leigh Nelson were one of the few cycle teams to stay out on course for the maximum amount of time, in what were very challenging conditions for our bike entrants. They top scored for the entire weekend with 1960 points. Some of our newer members took out placings in the Sunday events, including Brad Vallette, Karun Paul, Dale Drummond, Jet Shoon Chong and Jaron Lee.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who made this event possible. Follow these links to the results and splits, and to photos
