Barkley: Metrogaine 2018 Race Report Print E-mail
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.

Wingello Night/Day/Cycle rogaine on 1-2 Sept Print E-mail

The Night/Day/Cycle/Everythingelsegaine has been run and won for 2018. Swelled by the welcome addition of 

ANU’s Inward Bound hopefuls, over 300 participants enjoyed a diverse challenge at Wingello State Forest on the weekend of 1-2 September. 

Seb Dunne, Michael Reed and Emily Stewart-Reed brought all their endurance race expertise to bear to ensure there was something in it for walkers, runners and cyclists alike. 


Congratulations to Jack Brand backing up for a win with one team in the cycle event on Sunday, after winning the Saturday event with another team the night before. It was great to see top honours on Sunday being taken out by an all women’s team (Keira Doherty, Alex Grant, Sasha Lee) in the day event and a mixed team in the cycle, but it was Barkley who stole the show by leading three generations of the Saw family across the line as first family on Fathers Day. Thanks to all our volunteers and especially to Hartley for a hot breakfast in addition to their usual tasty treats.

Metrogaine 6hr - 12 August 2018 Print E-mail

Well it’s that time of year again, time to postpone that weekend skiing or sunny escape to the warmer parts of the country because ACTRA’s Metrogaine is coming to the inner north of Canberra!

Fergus Macleod and friends have set a cracking course between Belconnen and North Canberra that’s sure not to disappoint.   The hash house will be located within the University of Canberra, allowing access to the nearby Gossan Hill and Lake Ginninderra.  For those after more of a challenge, the course will extend towards Black Mountain, The Pinnacle and surrounds.

Plenty of options for families or teams wishing to enjoy that occasional playground or café stop as well as students looking to brush up on their navigational proficiency.  

As always, the Metrogaine can be entered as a solo competitor or in a team. We look forward to seeing you all there!

Kowen Forest Winter 4 hr - 15 July 2018 Print E-mail

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.

ACT Rogaining Champs Print E-mail

The ACTRA Facebook page now shows the superb view from control 101 on the ACT Champs course at Yarrangobilly Village in the northern Kosciusko National Park. Congratulations to everyone who came and did either the 8 hr or the 24 hr events. There were quite a few comments about how tough parts of the course were but you all still seemed to be happy at the end! Congratulations to NSWRA’s Ronnie Taib and David Williams for an outright win in the ACT Champs and to Tom Brazier and Paul Cuthbert for an outright win in the 8 hr. All the results are on the website, a strava fly-by of team routes, photos on the smugmug site and Barkely’s story.
