Team 107 - "Somewhat vague" in the 2014 Australian Championships

The Victorian Rogaine Association hosted the 2014 Australasian Championship and set the event in some excellent rogaining country, south of Castlemaine, over the second weekend of October.  The Hash House site was in a beautiful location along Vaughan Springs Road, adjacent the Loddon River.  Many competitors used the bunk bed option with hot showers.  Others camped in a paddock across the road.  We opted for a cottage in the nearby historical town of Maldon that we had visited on a previous Orienteering Carnival.


Hale n' Hearty 6 Hour First Family

We arrived at the Hash House just before 9.00 am for our map planning. Our plan was to maximise points with a straight line (string) distance of around 20km. Final route we decided on was about 22Km (straight line), with options towards the end to miss out points if we were running late.


Our Archeological Expedition at Saunders Gorge

Although participating in the Saunders Stampede Rogaine under the guise of an ordinary competitive team, our family was actually on a very different mission last Sunday. We were under the compelling, intrepid leadership of 4-year old Lucy, and were really on the hunt for dinosaur bones.


Saunder’s Saunter Winners' Race Report

Andrew Kennedy and Zara Soden only missed punching two controls at last weekend’s 6 hour rogaine. Read Andrew’s report to gain an insight into how two people achieved such stunning results...


A late Middleback race report from 11 year old Max – a member of the winning Family category team.

My name is Max. I am eleven years old. My first Rogaine was the 25 hour, 25th anniversary at Wirrabara Forest. Since then I've been in a few rogaines in Athelston, God's Country - Beyond Hell's Gates, Morialta and also the one near Peterborough. I've got to say my favourite one though was the one in the Middlebacks. I came along to this event with Ian Grivell (my Dad) and Adam Mclntosh (my cousin). We got up at four o'clock in the morning to go on a four hour and forty minute drive. It took a very long time!
