Paddy Pallin rogaine weekend a great success! Print E-mail

IB rogainersThe Paddy Pallin rogaine event weekend was a great success. Results are now available for both the ANU IB Special edition on Saturday and the ACT Paddy Pallin rogaine on Sunday.

If anyone is interested in returning to this area or missed out on its delights, we need people to collect controls. Please contact David Baldwin.

Saturday was a warm clear day and around 280 ANU students were out learning and testing their navigational skills ready for their Inward Bound competition in 4 weeks time.

On Sunday a thunderstorm mid-event did little to dampen the enthusiasm of the field of 170, with Olympic marathon runner Martin Dent teaming up with Brad Hetharia to win from Paul Cuthbert and visiting orienteer Lukas Frei. Julie Quinn and Simon Fairweather were third overall, winning the mixed category, and Lizzie Ingram and Sarah Buckerfield won the women's.

Check the photo gallery for photos from the event. We are interested in any feedback on splitting the event across the 2 days. It certainly reduced the crowding for parking, portaloos and catering.

A big thank you to all the landholders for sharing their wonderful properties with us, to all the volunteers for their efforts in making the event run so smoothly, and to the Jerangle School for the delicious food!

And don't miss this! Marco Ernst from Team 53 has produced a delightful video clip of his adventures on the Paddy Pallin rogaine!

A superb summer Twilight event Print E-mail

The 2015 Twilight event in the Ainslie - Majura Nature Park was held on a warm summer evening.  Glenn Bridgart set a great course taking in spots that people in their regular walks and rides would never go.  The top teams were set the challenge of collecting all the controls faster than any other teams while the majority of people found plenty to keep them occupied until the finish right on dark. It was fantastic to see the range of competitors we had from babies in backpacks, juniors and uni students, through to ultravets. Congratulations to Lizzie Ingham and Lachlan Dow for winning overall. For the other winners and to see how you went look at the results page.  There are lots of photos on the ACTRA SmugMug gallery. A huge thank-you to the volunteers who ran the event smoothly and also catered for many hungry rogainers.
