G'day Rogainers,

Spring Rogaine 24 hour or "15 in 24 hour" : 6 October 2012

The closing time for online registration for this event has now been extended to 3am on Wednesday . Please register here

There will be a 24 hour and a 15 within 24 hour event, both starting at midday on Saturday.

(1) The 24 Hour event is open to everyone and incorporates the NSW Championships.

(2) For the 15 within 24 Hour event, your team has to spend a minimum of 9 hours at the hash house.  This can be at any time in the 24 hour range and can be in two or more segments. Any segment has to be a minimum of 30 minutes duration.

Many people who want the experience of a longer rogaine and maybe want the challenge of some night navigation should consider the 15 in 24 Hour course. Consider also two 6 Hour stints in the daylight hours, with a cosy dinner at the Hash House and a rest overnight before going again on Sunday morning.

“The 2012 Spring Rogaine will be held over the weekend of Sat 6th/Sun 7th of October. The rogaine area is generally well wooded with limited undergowth. Terrain varies from some areas of quite low relief to undulating to steep…”
