We are really looking forward to the 2022 minigaine. We have had a long COVID enforced hiatus in our rogaining program, so it is time to hit the bush and get fit for this event.
The Hash House will be at 1st Cherrybrook Scout Hall in Cherrybrook, only 30mins from the CBD.
This is the first time that rogaining has visited Cherrybrook, although long term rogainers will note that the 2006 Metrogaine overlapped this area, but had its hash house in Pennant Hills.
The event will start at 9:00am and finish at midday with maps available from 7:30am.
At this stage we are planning on a mass start with hot and cold food being available straight after the event, but stay tuned in case COVID restrictions dictate a different starting time or process. The current COVID rules for sporting events in NSW can be found here:
You may enter solo or put together a team of up to 5 people.

Cherrybrook is a great place for the 3hr minigaine. The suburb is encircled by picturesque walking tracks and the east of the course will take in some beautiful country and some tricky navigation.
The Cherrybrook suburb is on a plateau surrounded by creeks. The plateau itself is undulating and there will be plenty of controls available without any heroic climbs or descents. For those of you chasing high point controls the course will take in many tracks, creek crossing and some steep hills that will give your legs a good workout in the three hours.
Places and routes such as the Callicoma Walk, The Jungo, the Blackwattle trail, the Cascades and the Lakes of Cherrybrook will all be competing for your attention.
Your one regret will be that you only have three hours to explore it all.
This is the perfect event for novices to give rogaining a go. There will be expert rogainers on hand before the start to give you all the assistance you need and there is also a lot of information on our web site : https://nswrogaining.org/novices. If you have any questions please contact our event adminstrators, who would love to help. email@example.com
Our objective is to keep you healthy so you can keep rogaining, as such the following procedures will be put in place to minimise the risk of COVID transmission at this event:
Please note that this is the one event each year where you do not require a partner. Having said that having a partner makes the event more fun and helps with knowledge acquisition.
