I went wandering
I went out walking
Down that winding road
Johnny Cash would have been 90 years old this year. We commemorate The Man in Black...
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 the body and the mind!
The “Walk Or Ride The Line” Metrogaine covers urban and bush environments around the suburbs of Nightcliff, Jingili, Tiwi and heading up towards Lee Point. Generally, it consists of easy terrain with roads and tracks to assist navigation, with a little bit of bush thrown in.
There are three events to choose from:
6 Hour A CERTAIN KINDA HURTIN’ – WALK OR RUN
Johnny says you're not leavin' on a one way track. Life is rough so you gotta be tough. It’s a pain he can’t explain.
Maps out at 13:00. Event starts at 15:00, finishes at 21:00.
3 Hour THE WANDERER – WALK OR RUN
Just like Johnny, you could be walking through the streets paved with gold, under an atomic sky, passing by a thousand signs.
Maps out at 14:00. Event starts at 16:00, finishes at 19:00.
4 Hour RING OF FIRE – CYCLE
Burn, burn, burn some rubber as you pedal down, down, down the hills. The rings should be fiery and the flames should be high when you’re ridin’ down that ol' eight lane.
Maps out at 14:30. Event starts at 16:30, finishes at 20:30.
DINNER is included in your entry fee! Dinner will be served between 18:30 and 21:30.
