WALK OR RIDE THE LINE - Metrogaine
Saturday 7th May 2022
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.

It's a Coolmarley Classic Bush Rogaine
ARE YOU READY TO GET YOUR ROGAINE REGGAE ON?!
This event is a CLASSIC BUSH ROGAINE set in the historic Coomalie Region, about an hour south of Darwin. The objective of the rogaine is to amass the highest score by finding checkpoints in the bush within a set time limit.
Teams of two to five members travel entirely on foot, navigating with the aid of a topographic map and handheld compass. Teams select their own order of visiting checkpoints, in varied terrain. The classic rogaine includes both day and night navigation. Teams can return to the Hash House for rest, food and socialising as often as they wish.
The Hash House for the Coolmarley Classic Bush Rogaine is located at Coomalie Creek Farm (along the road to the Coomalie Landing Ground, just south of the Bachelor turn-off).

Hunger Moon Monsoon Metrograine
Saturday, 27 February 2021
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!
