Its a Christmas Cracker!
Saturday, 30 November 2019
The last event for 2019 is going to be a 'Christmas Cracker Mystery Team Challenge' located at the Litchfield National Park Education Centre, at Bachelor.
A short 4 Hour Rogaine to finish the year off, which will be ideal for everyone ... including families. It's also a great opportunity to give Rogaining a go for the first time and see what its all about.
The terrain will include inviting rocky pools, a few spurs, saddles, creek bends and some knolls. Terrain variation will be up to 40-50 metres, and it will give a person looking to improve their skills a point in the right direction. It will also give the more experienced person a chance to share some knowledge. You can treat this event as a training run or a challenge, it’s entirely up to you!
Teams will be put together on the day using a mystery draw. There will be prizes for the best team, amongst other awards for achievements on the day.
Maps will handed out at midday.
The start time can be anytime after 2pm, but the finish time must be no later than 7pm (sunset). Total time on the course is 4 hours (max).
