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.
