Cotter Bend Winter 4h Rogaine

Come one, come all! On Sunday 7th July, the 4 Hour Winter Rogaine will be making its debut at a new location - Cotter Bend, only 25 minutes from Canberra's CBD! The course will explore the beautiful Murrumbidgee River Corridor, the rugged Bullen Range and the fast-travelling pine forests to the south. This course has something for everyone, from the families and first timers to the most competitive of rogainers. Come along for a great day out!

ACT Champs and 50th Anniversary Intervarsity Competition

The 2019 ACT Champs 8 and 24 hour rogaines were held in splendid conditions across diverse coastal terrain in Bournda National Park and Nature Reserve on 18-19 May. Congratulations to David Baldwin and newly elected International Rogaining Federation VP Julie Quinn for almost clearing the whole course in the 24 hour event, and to Tony Newman and Mikey Dimuantes, who were not far behind them in second place overall and winners of the 50th Intervarsity competition. We were honoured to have IV founder, David Hogg, and ARA president, David Rowlands, on hand to celebrate the IV milestone and to have David H (too many Davids!) present prizes to all the winners.

You'll see from the results and photos now available on the event page here that there were only a handful of women's teams across the whole weekend. Ladies – let’s go rogaining!

Also, here is the Strava Flyby of teams that carried GPS trackers.
There was also only one family team across the weekend – and they were happily adopted by Barkley for a sunny Sunday beach bash.


Here's the rogaine report from Bryn - aged 6 (ACT Rogaining 8 hour family champion).

"The rogaine was exciting. It was enjoyable. I liked the part when I saw the guy surfing the wave and he was standing up on his surfboard [control 57]. I also liked that everyone at camp was so friendly. We took Barkley to the beach and took a photo with him. And I also played Uno with him in the car on the way there and the way back. It was so fun."

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.
