ACT Champs Entries Open

Need to burn off those Easter calories? Hop along to the ACT Rogaining Championships and 8 hour on the weekend of 18/19 May. Entries are open now! Please consider booking bus travel with your entry – don’t trust your tired self getting to and from the event.

The 24 hour event is also the Australian Intervarsity Championships. All eligible ACT Intervarsity teams get a $100 discount to encourage participation, thanks to Nigel Aylott Memorial Sports Foundation (NAMSF) and ACTRA. All team members must be from the same institution. It is the 50th anniversary of intervarsity rogaining - see history on ARA website. In honour of the occasion, David Hogg, one of the founding organisers will be presenting the awards for the event.

We will be returning to Bournda on far south NSW’s stunning Sapphire Coast for the first time since 2014. Recent rains have made this jewelled area all the more splendid, especially in the patches of rainforest micro-climate. Venture down from the coastal ranges through the dense melaleuca (note to self: bring insect repellent) all the way to the sea – course-setters have even been rewarded with an April swim at Bournda Beach and Bondi Lake.


You are welcome to camp at the well-appointed Hobart Beach campground (book here) in Bournda National Park (pay park fee $8 per vehicle at the entrance), but there will also be free camping available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Hash House, which this year is at a superb new venue about 15 minutes’ drive from there, inland from Tura Beach – final details to be revealed a week before the event. Remember vote 1 Kate Miller-Heidke for Eurovision, and better pre-poll for that other election on 18 May too!

Paddy Pallin 6 hr rogaine - Where the WIld Things Are

Competitors were greeted by the cattle who call wild cattle flat home on Sunday, but fortunately they were friendly. Jon Glanville set a super course on The Hollow property and the Tallaganda National Park. It provided plenty of challenge for young families through to the top team who didn't quite get around the course on a sunny, calm and hot March day. Congratulations to Tom Brazier, Gill Fowler and Jack Brand who won overall. Special mention to Susie Sprague and Luca Saunders who won the family category by 8 minutes from Leanne, Scott, Sandy and Ross Wilkinson - and they were 16th and 17th teams overall. The womens open category was a close race too with everyone on the same score and only 3 minutes between them. It was won by Elizabeth Woodgate and Kerrie Murphy. Many thanks to Paddy Pallin for sponsoring and providing great spot prizes.

There are photos in the gallery from the day. Check them out to see if your friends were captured.

Happy new rogaining year

ACTRA memberships roll over on 1 January each year. For 2019 we are going to move to a membership system integrated with your event entry. This means you will not need to renew your membership now.

 

The first event for 2019 will be on Saturday 23 February with a 3 hr Twilight event being set by Craig Cowan at Stromlo Forest Park.

 
Clear with action

 

Spring sunshine saw 83 teams out at Mount Clear for the 6 or 12 hour event.  The hotly contested 6 hour was won overall by Matthew Crane and Martin Dent by a whopping 1750 points. Paul Cuthbert and Tara Sutherland won the mixed open and mixed vets with 1300 and the Wilkinson family won the family category with a great score of 1030 points.  Check out the full results. 

 

 

 

Barkley spent time whizzing through the bush with 12 hour teams until he was stolen by those thieving NSW lot. Fortunately David, Julie and Tom were whizzing just a bit faster and won overall with 2640 points.  Thanks to all the volunteers and of course Barkley’s sage advice.  See event photos in the Photo Gallery.

Barkley: Metrogaine 2018 Race Report
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.
