Metrogaine entries open!

Come join us for an adventure around Weston Creek and Molonglo Valley on Sunday August 13. Stroll through the intriguing and orderly new developments or explore the less manicured country around the Molonglo and Murrumbidgee Rivers. The options are endless.

The metrogaine is the one rogaine of the year where individuals can enter as well as teams, so there's no excuse not to enter! Get your glad rags on and come out and enjoy what the area has to offer.

This event is generously supported by the ACT government. Entries accepted until Tuesday 8th August, after that, pay an additional late fee. To enter, click here.

Control collectors are still needed. Contact Stephen if you can help out.

Spectacular day for the Winter 4 hour

ACTRA couldn't have asked for a more perfect day on Sunday, 2nd July. The sun was bright all day and without a breath of wind, it was shorts and t-shirt weather. There were 22 family teams entered and lots of Uni students, so the event did the ACT government grant proud in encouraging young and new participants. Googong was a lovely location for the day with open bushland in the easy spots and undulating hills (unless you got a little more adventurous). The overall winners were Keira Doherty and Tom Banks; closely followed by Anthony Newman and Brad Vallette and some super super vets Mike Hotchkis and Pam Muston. It just goes to show, speed is not always the winning ingredient in a rogaine!

Thanks to setters and vetters, Susie Sprague, Martin Dent and Graham Atkins. Thanks also to all the helpers on the day as well as the usual grand spread from Hartley Lifecare. Preliminary results are now available here.

Barkley's homecoming at Ridgy Didge ARC

Barkley: A little Koala Searching for a Home
It was 11:00 am, the rogaine was due to start in only an hour, and still no one had volunteered to take me! What was wrong, was I not wanted….maybe it was time to look outside the rogaining community for a more permanent home rather than waiting for months at a time to be dusted off…
But wait, here was Natalie, maybe she could help. Yes, she would take me. I explained my dilemma, she seemed surprised, but agreed to help me search for a new home while she explored Ridgy Didge. But, wondered Natalie, was I over-reacting, perhaps all that was needed was a “new look” Barkley that would catch the eye of rogainers. So began my adventure in the 2017 Australian Rogaining championships, part house hunting, part fashion show, oh yes, and a bit of navigation and walking thrown in as well.

Tip top Ridgy Didge Rogaine

The Australian Champs and Inter-Varsity Champs was a fantastic event. Superb setting by Ron Simpson and Jean Douglass in the Black Ridge - Chakola area SE of Canberra provided a great technical challenge in a beautiful area. Travel was quick with little undergrowth but required attention to navigation to find the controls. Many teams took advantage of the "Cuppa 'n' tucker" all night cafe and stayed out on course all night. Check out the photo gallery where event photos are loaded - contact Julie if you've got some to share too.

Congratulations to 2017 overall Australian Champs David Baldwin and Julie Quinn; and to overall Inter-Varsity Champs Fergus Macleod and Max Messenger. With lots of category winners, ACT also took out the Australian Champs inter-state point score competition. See the results page for all the category winners and other teams.

Thank you to the many volunteers who made the event possible, and the welcoming landholders.
