Big turn out for ACT and intervarsity championship event Print E-mail

champs

Deua National Park around Snowball provided some brilliant rogaining country this year for the ACT 24hr Rogaining Championships, incorporating an 8 hr event and the 2016 Intervarsity Rogaining Championships. Over 215 people took part and the course provided them with a mix of mature open forest, open flat areas, hilly terrain and plenty of creeks, one of which needed to be forded at the start of the event. Nothing like starting with wet feet!

No-one managed to clear the course, but Rob Walter and Paul Cuthbert came very close taking, home the men’s open and men’s veterans categories. Gill Fowler and Jess Baker took home the women’s open trophy. The Intervarsity Championship was taken out by Thomas Etheridge and William Tribe from ADFA and Clayton Balmain and Grace Crane won the 8hr. See where a bunch of teams went on Strava.

Many thanks to all our volunteers who made it happen, the land owners and Hartley Lifecare for keeping everyone wellfed, especially in the challenging weather conditions on the Sunday.

2016 Australian Intervarsity Rogaining Championships Print E-mail

2016 Australian Intervarsity Rogaining Championships will be held in conjunction with our own ACT Champs on 30 April-1 May. We would like to see lots of ACT university teams competing so we can keep the trophy in the ACT. Will ADFA steal it from ANU though? If you are interested in getting your entry fee and bus transport paid as an ACT university team, please get in contact with David Baldwin.

ACT champs 8/24 hour event over 30 April/1 May: enter by 25 April Print E-mail

P1040989__640x480_.jpgEnter now for the ACT's annual signature event: the ACT 8 and 24 hour championships, this year at Snowball. The headwaters of the Shoalhaven River are waiting for you! The area includes extensive river flats, old growth forests, some areas logged in the past and patches of farmland. Much of the area is open eucalypt forest. Of course, there are a few hills with elevations from 850m to 1250m. Fire trails cross the area and we have marked on some of the old logging tracks to help you through the scrubby bits. There will be two 1:25,000 A3 maps to ponder over on Saturday morning. 
There will be a bus to the event for those doing the 24 hour event at a subsidised fare of $25. Get there relaxed and get home safely. It takes about 2 hours to drive there. We highly recommend you take the bus, for safety and because there is limited parking at the hash house.

Book for the event by 25 April, and book the bus by 20 April.
