Ainslie/Majura virtualgaine wrap
Thanks to MapRun Maestro, Jon Glanville, for making more marvellous Mt Majura mayhem for over 250 rogainers and their friends during June. It was great to see so many people taking advantage of the Paddy Pallin sponsored map to tackle Canberra’s urban fringe in the Ainslie/Majura area, especially on some magical winter days on the long weekend.
It is pleasing that there have been no reports of failed control site pings, though we can’t vouch for the odd navigational error!
A big virtualgaine virtual prize to overall leader Matt Crane, who cleared the course in an amazing 2:40:21, only seconds ahead of his fellow national orienteering league teammate, Tomas Krajca, with Tom Banks third overall.
Congratulations also to an impressive contingent of Canberra Grammar School students who spent a stunning sunny Sunday 13 June chasing their course-clearing coaches Matt Purcell and Braedy Jaugietis around the mountains!
Full MapRun results are available on the app itself, but because we can’t tell whether participants were solo or in teams, or in mixed groups or joining with friends not timed using MapRun, a modified breakdown of the top 30 times plus other placegetters (using as close as possible to our usual rogaine classifications – in this case Y<20, J<26, Open, Vet 40+, Supervet 55+, Ultravet 65+) is attached.
