'Glee, Gulches & Gullies'
12-hour bush rogaine (with 6-hour roving)
When: Saturday, 18th June, 2016
Where: Litchfield National Park – Florence Falls Southern Escarpment
Time: 12 noon - 12 midnight
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

Metrogaines and Cyclogaines are sporting events based around the urban environment in line with the guiding principle of Rogaining.
Rogaining is a sport of cross-country navigation, involving both route planning and navigation between checkpoints using a map. Teams of 2-5 people choose which checkpoints to visit within a time limit with the intent of maximizing their score. The route you take and the time you spend on the course is up to you, as long as they are within the respective time limits. Call it a fun run, walk or ride with a twist as you and your team navigates through the course as determined by your pre-planned route at a pace you set using the map provided. It suits anyone from fun social teams to the ultra-competitive. The competitive can choose to go hard, while others may simply want to enjoy a leisurely afternoon walk or ride.
Entry also includes a BBQ dinner.
Entries now open, final entries close 17th February.
