Katherine Kapers Metrogaine

This event is a metrogaine and uses the principles of rogaining in an urban and surrounding bush setting. Teamwork, strategic planning and map reading are features of the sport.

 

Teams of 2 to 5 people choose which map checkpoints to visit within a designated time limit, with the intent of maximizing their score. It can be a wild walk, fun run or radical ride as teams plan their strategy and move through the course using the map provided. Great exercise for both the body and the mind!

Katherine Kapers Metrogaine starts and finishes at the Clyde Fenton Primary School at 22 Rapide St, Katherine. The event covers urban and bush environments around the Katherine area.

The registration desk opens at 12:30 pm and the event concludes at 9:00 pm. The course will be undertaken using the MapRun6 app. Each team will need to have at least one smart phone with the app already downloaded – PLEASE NOTE that the name of the MapRun6 user must match one of the names on the team entry form.

A Hunger Moon Monsoon Metrogaine

This event is a metrogaine and uses the principles of rogaining in an urban setting. Teamwork, strategic planning and map reading are features of the sport.

 

Teams of 2 to 5 people choose which map checkpoints to visit within a designated time limit, with the intent of maximizing their score. It can be a wild walk, fun run or radical ride as teams plan their strategy and move through the course using the map provided. Great exercise for both the body and the mind!

A Hunger Moon Monsoon Metrogaine starts and finishes at the Knuckey Lagoon Scout Hall on Brandt Road. The event covers bush and urban environments around Karama, Holmes Jungle and surrounds, Micket Creek, Thorak, Pinelands, Berrimah, and of course Knuckey Lagoon.

Course setters have attempted to keep everyone on solid ground throughout their chosen event, using as much of the natural bush available whilst staying out of the mud wherever possible. Route choice will be the key to being efficient with time and aggregation of points. Control points will be a mix of multiple-choice questions and traditional hanging controls.

 

THREE events are on offer:

EVENT (1) Walk or Run - 6 Hour HIKER
Get plucky with Knuckey because there are no shortcuts to any place worth going!
Maps out at 13:00. Teams will start at 15:00 and must be back by 21:00.
EVENT (2) Walk or Run - 3 Hour GAITER
A great event for families, or those preferring a more recreational rogaine.
Maps out at 13:30. Teams will start at 15:30 and must be back by 18:30.
EVENT (3) Cycle - 4 Hour BIKER
For all the cyclopaths out there! Put your peloton together and grease up your cranks.
Maps out at 14:30. Teams will start at 16:30 and must be back by 20:30.

 

Our wonderful volunteer catering team will have a BBQ dinner, cold drinks, fruit and cake available at the Hash House (Knuckey Lagoon Scout Hall) between 18:00 and 21:30.
