Yes we’re back-ish…for Free Days of Rogaining! The Night/Day/Cycle Rogaine at Kowen Forest on the weekend of 15/16 August is due to be our first 'real' rogaine since the Paddy Pallin event on 1 March. The COVID-19 situation remains somewhat fluid, so anything could still happen, but let’s assume it will all be right on the night. Speaking of COVID, in line with current Government restrictions we will be operating under our ‘Return to Play Plan’. Critically this affects the number of people who can gather at the start and finish of the event – we will be limiting entries to 95 (as the 5 organisers must also be included in our maximum of 100) people per event, so a) think about whether you want to enter the Night (Saturday – 5 hours), Day or Cycle (both Sunday – 6 hours) event/s and b) once entries open get in early! A MapRun alternative is also being planned.

Note to ANU students – as there will be many teams wanting to use the event for IB training purposes, please DO NOT ENTER YET - CONTACT YOUR IB COACH FIRST.

We will also be implementing safe procedures for handing out maps and navlight punching. Please read your final instructions carefully when they come out. We will still provide maps and toilets, but sadly it means there will be no catering at the Hash House and no prize ceremony. On the plus side the event will be free for all entrants.

If you missed the Night/Day/Cycle Rogaine at Kowen Forest or just want to get out there again, you can do either a Foot or Cycle (both 6 hours) event.results

Jono Fearn and Ciaran Lane have set a great course with some fun riding on the remaining MTB trails and some enticing bush and pine forest for some cross country navigation on foot.

The virtual event will run until Monday 5 October. The pink marking tape for the control sites marks the locations.

The Winter 4 hour virtual rogaine in Jerrabomberra and Queanbeyan has now finished, after being run for an extra two weeks due to popular demand! It was a rogaine for everyone with a little bit of everything, from trails to footpaths, hills to flats, and tracks to bush-bashing. Well done to all who entered and we hope you enjoyed it each time you went out there.

Results are now available on the event page. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for entries opening to the upcoming Day/Night/Cycle rogaine at Kowen Forest and Sparrow Hill!

20WinterJerra2Following a successful virtual event at Mt Rogers, the Winter 4 hour rogaine will once again be held virtually. Between Saturday 11 July and Sunday 19 July 2020, explore the scenic trails and suburbia of Jerrabomberra and Queanbeyan. 

Check out the pics in the event photo album - lots of interesting places to see and things to find.

A virtual rogaine has a map but no physical controls in the trees or anywhere else. Instead you will need to download the MapRunF App to a smartphone to score the virtual controls. More about this on the event page.

enter eventEntry is free, although we encourage you to enter early - by Monday 6 July please - so we know approximately how many maps to print. 

You can print your own map or collect a Teslin one from Paddy Pallin in Lonsdale Street, Braddon, from Thursday 9 July. Course setters notes, instructions to get to the start and a copy of the map to print if you prefer will be on the event page from Thursday 9 July as well.

Happy rogaining!
