The virtualgaine event area includes The Pinnacle, Mount Painter, Aranda Bushlands and Black Mountain nature reserves, plus the suburbs of Weetangera, Macquarie, Cook and Aranda.
This is a virtual event, which means that you can take part at any time between Saturday 27 May and Monday 12 June 2023 inclusive and you'll use the MapRun app on your phone or watch to record your visits to control sites. It's a four hour event, and you can enter individually or as a team. Make the most of the autumn sunshine and enjoy the great views as you explore our beautiful reserves. You can check out more photos from the course setter Jon Glanville and the vetter Julie Quinn in the gallery.
All you need is a map and a smart phone. A friend is also good!
If you are missing the post-event catering, there are good cafes nearby at Aranda shops, Cook shops and the Jamison Centre.
Virtual rogaines use the MapRun6 App that can be downloaded to your smart phone. Either seach on your app store or go to the website that will direct you to the right App. Please download and read these instructions on using MapRun6 to learn how to use the App. The App uses the GPS on your phone to work out you are at the control location. To score a control you will need to be within 10 m of the feature. Check your detailed control descriptions as there will be no flags.
The MapRun6 App will show the map on your phone screen but if you prefer to be able to see the whole map, download and print your own copy. Copies of the map will be printed on waterproof Teslin and left at the Paddy Pallin store on Lonsdale Street, Braddon for you to collect from Tuesday 23 May. There are 350 maps, which should be plenty but if they are all taken you will have to print your own.
