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.

Big turn out for ACT and intervarsity championship event Print E-mail


Deua National Park around Snowball provided some brilliant rogaining country this year for the ACT 24hr Rogaining Championships, incorporating an 8 hr event and the 2016 Intervarsity Rogaining Championships. Over 215 people took part and the course provided them with a mix of mature open forest, open flat areas, hilly terrain and plenty of creeks, one of which needed to be forded at the start of the event. Nothing like starting with wet feet!

No-one managed to clear the course, but Rob Walter and Paul Cuthbert came very close taking, home the men’s open and men’s veterans categories. Gill Fowler and Jess Baker took home the women’s open trophy. The Intervarsity Championship was taken out by Thomas Etheridge and William Tribe from ADFA and Clayton Balmain and Grace Crane won the 8hr. See where a bunch of teams went on Strava.

Many thanks to all our volunteers who made it happen, the land owners and Hartley Lifecare for keeping everyone wellfed, especially in the challenging weather conditions on the Sunday.

2016 Australian Intervarsity Rogaining Championships will be held in conjunction with our own ACT Champs on 30 April-1 May. We would like to see lots of ACT university teams competing so we can keep the trophy in the ACT. Will ADFA steal it from ANU though? If you are interested in getting your entry fee and bus transport paid as an ACT university team, please get in contact with David Baldwin.
