Funny Hats


The year's 6hr Socialgaine will be held near Newcastle about 1hr and 40 mins away from Sydney's CBD on Sunday 26th November 2017.

The map is largely suburban but includes Blackbutt and Richley Reserves and some lovely bush areas around John Hunter Hospital as well other parks and trails.

You will have the option of maximising the trails and bush sections or mostly sticking to the streets. We are trying to make the most of the bush areas and trails around John Hunter Hospital before the planned bypass goes through it.

The start location is Elermore Vale Public School, (corner of Jubilee and Croudace Roads) with parking on surrounding streets so please carpool if possible.

There will be a mass start at 9:30am with a finish at 3:30pm followed by presentations.


The entry fees are $40 (full) and $28 (concession) with a meal included; sausages or vegie burgers in bread with salad, fruit, tea and coffee, etc.

If you have little kids, perhaps bring both a pram and a baby carrier and decide on the day which to use. There will be a lot of options for families of picnic areas and playgrounds and you can also cool off after the rogaine at Lambton Pool. There are a lot of birds in the area and you may see bats or other wildlife and possibly even Daleks. Blackbutt Reserve has animal exhibits which you might like to visit after the rogaine (it might be a stretch to take children to visit the animals during the rogaine as it is somewhat distant from the hash house).

For more information about the rogaine please call Samantha Howe (setter) - 0425 329 661 or email
