Course Description

This years ACT Champs is approximately 30 km northeast of Goulburn in the Tarlo River National Park and surrounding farmland (about 1.5-2 hours drive from either Canberra or Sydney). The area comprises open forest along the Cookbundoon Range and Tarlo River. It is classic spur-gully terrain and ranges in elevation from 600m to 950m, although most of the course is between 600m and 700m. The whole course is virtually free of scrub and undergrowth, and is very fast and enjoyable to move through. The National Park has not seen a bushfire for many years and it is a refreshing change from the burnt areas closer to Canberra.

The weekend of the event is very close to the Winter solstice (June 22), therefore expect a long, cold (but very enjoyable) night. There will be around 14 hours of darkness (sunset is 4.58pm and sunrise 7.09am).

In addition to camping on the Saturday night, camping is also available at the Hash House on the Friday night, for those who want to travel to the event on Friday rather than Saturday morning.
