Description

This year's Spring Rogaine ventured back to the Goulburn River National Park near Ulan.  This park was last used for the 2007 State Champs. The section of the park used this time has some of the classic features of this area and had not been rogained on before. The features included impressive sandstone bluffs, interesting cave and rock weathering, magnificent broad tracts of the sandy Goulburn River, and generally open eucalypt forest.

The event offered the choice of a 24 hour or a 15 in 24 hour duration.  Both events started at midday on Saturday and finished at midday on Sunday.  The difference was for the 15 in 24 hour event you must spend a minimum of 9 hours in total "off course" at the hash house.  For the 24 hour event you have complete freedom to spend however much time you like on the course.  If you want to win or just prove you can do it, you keep going with only short stops.  Most teams in this type of event plan a route with two loops, returning to the hash house for a feed and at least a short sleep during the night

The 24 hour event incorporated the NSW Championships.

The "15 in 24" option

The start and finish time for the "15 in 24 hour" event are the same as for the 24 hour, midday Saturday and midday Sunday.  The difference is that in that period you have to spend at least 9 hours at the Hash House.  When you do this is your choice.  The map and course are the same as for the 24 hour.
