We have a 6 hour option and the traditional 24 hour event. And remember if you enter the 24 hour event you don’t have to stay out the whole time.

Socialgaine – the Woronoragaine: Sunday 17 Nov 2013

This year, the 6-h Socialgaine – our traditional year-end event – has been set down in the Shire. Gareth Denyer has been out and about over the last few months setting the course, covering more than 250 km in the process. He has uncovered a huge number of great trails in his travels and has strung them together into a course that we can guarantee you will love (as long as you don’t mind the odd hill). Trails, pools, views, local landmarks, you name it…

Check out the event web page for photos.

Entries will be open soon…

Contact Joel Mackay if you have any questions.
