It’s time to work off the holiday feasts in the 2019 3hr Minigaine! This year’s Minigaine will take place in the Western Sydney Parklands, Abbotsbury, on Sunday 24th February 2019.

The Western Sydney Parklands are located about 45kms West of Sydney, encompassing Blacktown, Fairfield and Prospect. Covering over 5000 hectares it is the largest urban parkland system in Australia.

The Minigaine map will feature a fairly equal mix of parkland and urban areas. Suitable for a wide range of abilities, the course features grassy fields, woodlands, parklands and lookouts. It includes pram friendly routes, cafes and kids’ playgrounds with flying foxes, climbing towers and water play. Furry four legged kids are also welcome (on a leash), so bring the whole family for a super fun day out!

The start location will be at Lizard Log, off Cowpasture Road, within the Parklands. Limited parking is available at the park so please carpool if possible.

Gates open at 7:00am. There will be a mass start at 9:00am with a finish at 12:00pm, followed by presentations. Light refreshments will be provided at the finish.

This is the one of the few NSW rogaines where you can fine-tune your skills as a solo participant, or enter as a team. Please note you must be 18 years or older to enter as a solo participant."
