Leaping Lee Metrogaine 

2020 is a leap year, so to maximise the opportunity of the extra day we have put a Metrogaine on that day. So pencil it in your dairy and come along to the Northern Territory Rogaine Associations first event for the New Year.

Starting from Leanyer, the Metrogaine event will cover the bush and urban environments from Lee Point all the way to McMillians Road, out through Casuarina Foreshore and across to Holmes Jungle. There will be hanging controls as well as the multiple choice selections in the multitude of green spaces that our urban jungle provides. You can do it on foot, or do it on a bike, MTB is best as it will cover as many of the MTB tracks available in the areas mapped.

There will be three events:

  1. Outback Bakery Roll - 6 hour;
  2. One Mile Brewery Biker - 4 Hour;
  3. General Store Stroll - 3 Hour

Metrogaines are sporting events based around the urban environment, in line with the guiding principle of Rogaining. Teamwork, strategic planning and map reading are features of the sport. Entry includes BBQ Dinner. Teams of 2-5 people choose which checkpoints to visit within a time limit with the intent of maximizing their score. Call it a fun run, walk or ride, as you and your team move through the course using the map provided as determined by your team’s strategy whilst exercising both mind and body.

Its a Christmas Cracker!
 

The last event for 2019 is going to be a 'Christmas Cracker Mystery Team Challenge' located at the Litchfield National Park Education Centre, at Bachelor.

A short 4 Hour Rogaine to finish the year off, which will be ideal for everyone ... including families. It's also a great opportunity to give Rogaining a go for the first time and see what its all about.

The terrain will include inviting rocky pools, a few spurs, saddles, creek bends and some knolls. Terrain variation will be up to 40-50 metres, and it will give a person looking to improve their skills a point in the right direction. It will also give the more experienced person a chance to share some knowledge. You can treat this event as a training run or a challenge, it’s entirely up to you!
 

Teams will be put together on the day using a mystery draw. There will be prizes for the best team, amongst other awards for achievements on the day.

Maps will handed out at midday.
The start time can be anytime after 2pm, but the finish time must be no later than 7pm (sunset). Total time on the course is 4 hours (max).

The Education Centre venue is fully facilitated, with showers, toilets, and a large undercover area, and it also boasts a swimable waterhole with a nearby secluded waterfall. Camping is free, dinner and breakfast will be provided, and there will be a secret Santa ... amongst other things.

Entry form attached. Please save the date / weekend.
