We're pleased to announce our first physical rogaine for the year! And, it's free to boot!
The event will take place in accordance with ACT Government COVID19 Guidelines and therefore, each event will only have less than 100 participants. Therefore if you are keen to participate you should enter as soon as possible.
We will also announce and send all participants a series of guidelines to unsure proper social distancing and sanitsation at controls.
Unfortunately, to help keep everyone safe and ensure social distancing, we will not be offering catering at the event. We have therefore made the decision to offer this event as another free event, and to utlise ACT Government grant monies to cover the costs of this event. In this uncertain world, the event may be cancelled or postponed at short notice, and check the final instructions for any important COVID19-related measures. If the event is cancelled we will offer it virtually.
ANU students please refrain from signing up for the event on 16 August 2020
Due to the current restrictions of 100 people at community sporting events, it is not feasible to have us all at the one event. Instead, we will convert the event to the MapRunF app which will be open for a number of weeks after the actual event on 16 August 2020. We will keep controls out there to make control spotting easier. We will also make a PDF of the map available to Inward Bound coaches and it is up to them coordinate each college's participation in the event. This will of course be free given that the event is virtual.
In these days of not touching things, we have had to come up with alternative solutions for the start/finish of rogaines and for navlight punching. At your next rogaine you can still expect an organiser (wearing gloves) to issue two of your team members with sanitised navlight wristbands at the modified HashHouse; and out on course you will still find a control flag (either corflute or metal) with a navlight punch attached. However, thanks to some engineering ingenuity from ACTRA committee member Nick Lhuede, the navlight will be fixed to a rigid structure with a combination of straps, chains and/or padlocks, enabling you simply to present your wristband to the punch without having to handle the punch itself. While the likelihood of contagion from a small device that has been out in the elements for up to 10 days is very low, the potential consequence of any infection remains very high, so please for the sake of everyone’s health and safety, do not to touch the punches with your hands. Add to that maintaining 1.5m distance from your teammates and other participants at all times and we can all enjoy the new normal of going rogaining again

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.
