Description

The 2015 "metrogaine" departed from the usual format by offering the choice of two durations, a 6 hour and a 12 hour event.  Both started at 11am on Saturday 28th February.

The course encompassed the Lane Cove National Park and river catchment, from the river’s source in Pennant Hills to the De Burghs Bridge at Killara. The base map used the highly detailed STEP map. John Martyn, the map’s cartographer and noted naturalist, assisted Ted Woodley set a course that encompassed the most scenic and interesting features of the catchment.

If you want to read up about the Lane Cove River Catchment get a copy of the “Field Guide to the Bushland of the Lane Cove Valley” by Dr John Martyn which is $20 (+$10 p&p). Also you can purchase a copy of John’s Lane Cove Valley map, on which the rogaine has been based for $5 (no postage applies). Both documents are available from www.step.org.au (STEP is a community-based environmental organisation with over 400 members from Ku-ring-gai, Hornsby and surrounding suburbs of northern Sydney. Its primary aim is to preserve all natural bushland within the area from alienation and degradation.)

The Hash House (start & finish) was at the Baden-Powell Scout Centre, Pomona Street Pennant Hills.
