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!
