G'day Rogainers,

Spring Rogaine (incorporating the NSW Championships), 8hr & 24hr: Saturday 13-14 September 2014

Entries are now open, here.

The 2014 Spring Rogaine, incorporating the 2014 NSW Championships will be set in the Newnes State Forest north of Lithgow, about 2 hours West of Sydney.

 At the junction of the Blue Mountains and Tablelands, this beautiful rogaining country gently undulates between forest and creeks, and provides stunning views on surrounding rock pagoda formations. The vegetation is mostly open and fast, and the terrain should provide navigation challenges for all level participants, in both the 8 and 24 hours events.

Lake Macquarie Rogaine, 6hr & 12hr: Saturday 2 August 2014

Results, reports and photos  here.

The Lake Macquarie Rogaine returned to an area of the Watagan Mountains which hadn’t been used for at least 10 years. Once again the event was supported by Lake Macquarie City Council as part of the Lake Macquarie Games

The Watagan Mountain is west of Australia’s largest coastal salt water lake with the hash house location for this years event being The Old Mill Picnic Area which is only 2 hours north of Sydney. The area used was mostly in the Olney State Forest with beautiful rainforest, pristine creeks, friendly fauna and an extensive track network that allowed competitors the option of avoiding some of the navigation through dense vegetation

This popular event was an opportunity for novice competitors to gain experience in rogaining or night navigation while providing a challenge for the more experienced rogainers.

Can you help us at a coming Rogaine?

We need the following volunteers to ensure we can stage remaining 2014 and also our 2015 events. Please contact Ian Dempsey if you can lend a hand.

In particular, we need an Event Coordinator for the 6 Hour Socialgaine, November 16.
