Description of this Event:

The location was Euroka Clearing, near Glenbrook in the lower Blue Mountains.

There was a good network of trails through the event area. National Parks had recently conducted an extensive series of hazard reduction burns. This significantly improved the accessibility of the off-track terrain in those areas. The course setters made good use of this access to make route choice between track and cross country interesting.

There were plenty of controls located closer to the hash house, specifically aimed at novices and a broad range of control difficulties across the course for the more experienced and longer-distance rogainers. For novices at our events, people are always available during planning and after the start to give advice on course planning and technique.

History of the event:

This event was the 50th anniversary of the events Paddy Pallin - the man, and founder of the Paddy Pallin outdoors stores – started organising in 1963. The goal was to encourage people to experience the Australian bush safely. Then, as now, walkers were regularly getting lost and sometimes seriously injured. Paddy saw the need to improve walkers’ navigational skills and organised these events to do something positive.
Paddy Pallin ran the events for the first 25 years, and in 1981 outsourced the event organisation to the NSW Rogaining Association.
