Spring into the spring rogaine: 27 October 2018

Clear the decks and come and clear your head.  The spring flowers are ready for the last ACT Rogaine for the year in the Mount Clear area and some new territory to the south in NSW.

It is being held (mainly) in Namadgi National Park in southern ACT.  It’s a great area with grassy plains, open forest and a bit of history.  You can choose the 6 hour or a 12 hour event, with both events starting at 11am on Saturday 27th October.  

The Hash House is at the northern end of the course and the Hartley team will be there to fuel you up on your return.  There are a few fire trails for speedier travel and controls near the Hash House will be easier navigation.  Not so further out!

Entry is now open.

Barkley: Metrogaine 2018 Race Report
After a busy time in the Flinders Rangers winning the South Australian Rogaine Champs with his two hangers oners Julie and David, Barclay decided he'd like a chilled Metrogaine. https://photos.smugmug.com/2018-Events/2018-Metrogaine-1/i-4SW4rcd/0/9aa40141/L/IMG_20180812_125510777-L.jpg
 
He looked around at all assembled on Sunday morning and settled on two young fellows, Sam and Angus. They looked like the kind of kids Barclay wanted to spend the day with. What he didn't see though was the two caffeine addicted adults that accompanied these boys.

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.
