Great to see some new and some familiar faces over the weekend as rogaining started to return to "in-person" events. The event will now continue as a virtual MapRun event - there will be some maps available at Paddy Pallin, and the event will appear in the MapRunF app. Maps are available here in A3 size or 2 x A4 pages for printing, along with the course setters' notes and control descriptions.
Saturday night had some drizzle and mist but cleared to a starry night. The calm conditions meant it didn't get too cold, but visibility made navigation challenging. Sunday was clear and sunny but with a steady breeze blowing. Conditions underfoot were damp and slippery with a bit of mud in places.

A big thanks to all the volunteers who made the event happen. Stephen Goggs wrangling toilets and running admin, Jonathan Fearn, Ciaran Lane, Dane Roberts and Keira Banks for setting and hanging the controls on a great course, and Kelvin Peh for managing First Aid.
The Winter 4 hour virtual rogaine in Jerrabomberra and Queanbeyan has now finished, after being run for an extra two weeks due to popular demand! It was a rogaine for everyone with a little bit of everything, from trails to footpaths, hills to flats, and tracks to bush-bashing. Well done to all who entered and we hope you enjoyed it each time you went out there.
Results are now available on the event page. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for entries opening to the upcoming Day/Night/Cycle rogaine at Kowen Forest and Sparrow Hill!

Congratulations to everyone who got out on our virtual course once, twice or more times. It was fantastic to see such enthusiasm for rogaining on an excellent course set by Jon Glanville. We had expected a few teams to clear the course and had 30 get around them all!

Get out those rogaining shoes and dust off your sunhat - virtual rogaining is coming to Canberra. We are setting up an urban 3 hr rogaining adventure just for you and your friends. Just like a real rogaine you will be out there in the elements but unlike a real rogaine we won't be able to supply a hash house (BYO takeaway). If you want to practice using the MapRunF App, there are a number of virtual orienteering maps with scatter events around Canberra.
