9 hour bush Rogaine

The course covers an area along the eastern boundary of Litchfield National Park, just after the park entrance when travelling from Batchelor. This area offers brilliant rogaining terrain with a mix of flat open woodlands along with plenty of hills and the fantastic views and endless navigational challenges they present. This area has not been used since 2012.

4 hour roving option

The roving option gives competitors entering this event the opportunity to compete in a shorter event. You may come and go from the hash house as you wish during the 9 hour period but must not be on the course for more than 4 hours in total.

Entry includes a delicious evening meal and bush camping will be available at the hash house site. A cooked breakfast will also be available on Sunday morning.

Don’t have a team? We will find you one!

Entry forms available here soon.

This event is proudly supported by Darwin City Council as part of the campaign for Share the Roads and Paths. The campaign aims to promote awareness to the community about appropriate behaviors amongst all users involving the paths and roads that we all share as motorists, cyclists and as walkers or runners. The event is also being supported by DORC , who are a group of dedicated people passionate about their sport and also advocate proper path and road etiquettes by all user groups. So what a better way to do this than to have a Metrogaine that encompasses all categories’ of users as we Ride or stride around the lovely municipality of Darwin and the green Suburban environments that we call home.

3 hour Minigaine

This event is aimed at those who haven’t done Metrogaines before and want to give it a go to see what it’s all about. Assistance will be available on the day, should you need some help, prior to the event. This event is also perfect for families as it will get you back before dark and have a feed from the BBQ early in the evening. The course for a three hour situation is pram friendly and if your child is 7 or under they may ride a push bike/trike as long as the accompanying parent is on foot.

5 hour Cyclogaine

With this event, again there are your personal team options. You can choose to take in the sights and do the cycle paths or you can really go hard and try and clean up with your team.

6 hour Rogaine

With this event, you can again decide how your team would like to compete. Stay out for a few hours, head back to the Hash House for a feed and rest and head out for the remaining hours of the event or maybe your team are foot diehards who will keep proceeding, progressing and performing.

It’s on again this year! A fun 4 hour navigational challenge for everyone. If you have participated in an event this year or are a member of the Darwin bushwalking Club you are cordially welcome to attend our Christmas get together.

The Hash House will be at the Education Center in Litchfield National Park. It commences with maps being handed out at 12:30pm and teams will be selected, whereupon those who are experienced and have good navigation skills will be allocated with someone who is seeking some assistance with their navigation and map reading skills, Current skill level and enthusiasm will be taken into account when matching people up.

This is a great opportunity not to be missed, especially for those who want to improve on knowledge and current skills in a format that is both fun and inspiring. Plus this is a noble opportunity for those that are well versed in map reading to share some of your knowledge with others and get together for this once a year event.

It’s also an occasion that allows you to catch up with fellow Rogainers/bushwalkers and enjoy the evening with a BBQ dinner and some light hearted fun with prizes and surprises. In the evening, there will be a Chris Kringle swap and steal.

On the next day, there will be a botanical walk, providing insight into the variety of top end plants found in the area. Plus throughout the time spent in the area there is wild life viewing and opportunities for swims in natural surroundings.
