G'day Rogainers,

Metrogaine, 6hr: 9 February 2014

Registrations are now open here.

What better way to round off the summer holidays and kick-start 2014 than participating in the first Rogaine for the year.

The 6 hour Hornsbygaine encompasses the Berowra Valley National Park and surrounding suburbs. Enjoy spectacular vistas, great bush tracks, majestic trees, shy wildlife, tranquil creeks, twists and turns, The Great North Walk, The Fishponds, and a hill or two. And there are shops on the way for a cool drink or ice-cream.

Online entries for this rogaine close at midnight on Tuesday 4th February.

Can you help us at a Rogaine event in 2014?

We need willing and able volunteers to ensure we can stage our 2014 events. Please have a look at the volunteer calendar page to see where help is needed and contact Ian Dempsey if you can lend a hand.

If you can’t make it to an event, setting, vetting, flag hanging or collecting can be a great way to see a course and practice your navigation skills.

The Metrogaine still needs people to hang flags on Saturday 8 Feb, and also some on-the-day help at registration.
