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.

Paddy Pallin Pleasure

Over 230 rogainers took advantage of the sunny conditions to explore the Yankee Hat area in the ACT’s Namadgi National Park. Brad Vallette, Fergus McLeod, Emily Rowbotham and Anthony Newman set a great course which highlighted the best bits of the area. The course they set proved to be the perfect size, with only the overall winners Julie Quinn, David Baldwin and Gill Fowler managing to clear it, with seven minutes to spare and taking out the mixed open category. Second overall was Anthony Ricci and Oliver Lilford, who won the mens open category, and Kate Thomas, Rebecca Rogers and Ainsley Pahljina won the womens open category. The family category was won by Lisa Cutfield, Nick Lhuede and Henry Lhuede.

 

The variety of the terrain and features, including grasslands, wooded hills, boulders of all shapes and sizes, huts and fireroads provided route options for all teams, from the youngest competitor in a family team at just a few months old, through to the experienced, ultraveteran teams. Rogainers returned to the hashhouse to enjoy the delicious food provided by Hartley Lifecare and to share stories of their routes, sights and wildlife experienced during the event. The presentation was followed by a random draw where some lucky participants won prizes that were provided by Paddy Pallin.

 

ACTRA would like to thank the event setters and vetters, as well as administration helpers Jean Douglass, Ron Simpson and Dane Roberts, first aider Monika Binder, pre-event administrator Claire Edwards, ACT Parks and Wildlife for permission to use the area, and of course the event sponsor Paddy Pallin for its continued support of this annual event.

Results can be found here and also check out Strava Fly-by to see where some teams went.
