Tidbinbillagaine now open! Print E-mail


We return to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve for this year's winter four hour rogaine. We’re fortunate to have such a fabulous reserve so close to Canberra, and to be allowed to access it for a rogaine. This event is being generously supported by an ACT government grant and will be run over two days. Saturday will see the ANU contingent training for their Inward Bound, while Sunday will be open to all other rogainers. Glenn Bridgart has set the course to provide entertainment for the ANU contingent, and for the many families we anticipate will come and give rogaining a go. Expect to visit some classic Tidbinbilla icons; there will be options for families to choose courses which meander through the valley.

This event is always a great opportunity to get out in winter for a short stroll or run through the bush. By mid-August the days are longer (and maybe a tad warmer?). Entries are now open, so book now. To enter the Sunday event, do so as usual through the link on this page. (ANU is separately organising entries for the Saturday university event.) Enter by Sunday 7 August to avoid a late penalty fee.

Metrogainers sweep through Gungahlin Print E-mail

P60709_110459.jpgColleen Mock and her team delivered a metrogaine with all the ingredients for a great event: a delightful course through attractive streetscapes and urban bushland; excellent event documentation, and mild and dry Canberra weather. The event marked the 25th anniversay of the Gungahlin township, and the course visited a number of historic sites in the area.

Class shone through in the results. Four competitors cleared the course, with Martin Dent finishing ahead of Rob Walter, Matthew Crane and Paul Cuthbert. In the women's category, Clare Lonergan edged out Susie Sprague, while Keira Doherty and Tom Banks took out the mixed event. Full results are posted on our website; photos are at our Smugmug site.

Our thanks as always to the organisers and volunteers who brought us the event, and to Hartley Lifecare who once more produced a delicious post-event feast.

A pair of brown spectacles was left at the event. If they might be yours, please contact Colin at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

2016 Metrogaine - Gungahlin - then and now. Saturday 9 July Print E-mail


2016 marks the 25th anniversary of the official launch of Gungahlin.  Much has changed since 1991, with development currently proceeding on the 13th and 14th suburbs (Moncrieff and Throsby).  Despite the pace of development,  each suburb proclaims its own distinctive urban and architectural style, and relics of the pastoral past abound.  From grasslands to woodlands, wetlands to hilltop reserves, stone hut ruins to golf course mansions, historic villages to vibrant suburban centres, Gungahlin offers a rich and diverse tapestry of the past and the present.  
Come and discover the hidden treasures of Canberra's northernmost town in the 2016 Metrogaine.  Get lost in the street mazes of Ngunnawal and Amaroo, admire the views from Harcourt Hill and Percival Hill, lose valuable course time in the state-of-the-art playgrounds in Casey and Franklin (it is school holidays after all), ponder awhile about the hardships of 19th century life on 'Gungaderra' or 'Horse Park', or just go for points and venture into the sweeping grasslands of unimpeded travel.  It's all waiting for you in the 2016 Metrogaine, SATURDAY 9 July.
Entries are now open to teams of 2-5 people, and for this event, to solo entrants as well.
