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. But then at the other end of the scale, you may be a sprinter and an elite athlete who can push hard for the whole 3 hours.

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.
6 Hour Hike
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 fleet footed diehards who will just keep going.

Join us for a 12hr bush rogaine and test your navigational skills as you traverse your way around the natural environments of Litchfield National Park. There will also be a 6 hour event within the event times from midday to midnight, more commonly known as a roving event. Competitors entering this event may come and go from the hash house but can only be on the course for a maximum of 6 hours.
The course setter, Jon Potter says:
"Terrain is Savannah woodland, escarpment country, sandy plains with some rock features in the deeper gullies and some easily traversable rain forest. The course has been planned to be of a user friendly nature with an easy route choice between all controls, regardless of the attack direction."
The hash house is a large area with plenty of shady trees to camp under and right on the edge of the course proper. There will still be creeks and waterfalls running in June.
This is a very doable event for all-comers, with good points available to even the least experienced as well as a challenge to the experienced at the extremities."
Entries now open, entries close 15th June 2016
