ACT Champs 24hr + 8hr rogaines - Black Range
From Saturday 20 April 2024
To Sunday 21 April 2024

The ACT Champs returns to a favourite area last used for the ACT Champs in 2012 and Australian Champs in 2017 with our star course setters Jean Douglass and Ron Simpson. 

It takes about 75 minutes to drive to the HH area from central Canberra, mostly on sealed Monaro Highway with the last 5 kms on a good gravel road.33

The area is mo12stly very open going with dry eucalypt forest cover. The elevation goes from 800m to 1,090m with mostly gradual hills. The course area is almost scrub free except for some larger creeks and it is easily avoided. Most of the area is privately owned yet not farmed. There are some old gold diggings and firetrails cross the course. The landowners have been very generous in allowing this event.  There is free camping at the Hash House site on Lyn and Lucky's property (our very favourite landowners). Registration will open at 9am on Saturday 20th April and both the 24hr and 8hr events will be a mass start at midday.  

It is also Barkley the koala's 12th birthday so come and help celebrate.  Catering this year will be ACTRA managed, and we haven't done it for many years. Volunteer helpers for admin and catering are very welcome.  If you are planning on staying the night after the 8 hour event, please consider helping with catering for the 24 hour teams.
