More Than Morialta - 2nd Place Report

Team 23 came in second at the recent More than Morialta! 4 hour rogaine, amassing an amazing 1930 points. How did they do it?! Dion Byas has shed some light on just how he did it.

Competing in a rogaine for the first time only happens once, although I can now see how different a 12 or 24 hour rogaine would be to the 4 hours spent hunting around Morialta on Saturday, 15 March. Having decided to enter the event after speaking to my neighbours, Trent & Jenny McInerney who are seasoned competitors and great advocates for the sport, I wanted to start with a duration that would suit my running background.


More Than Morialta Interview

Reuben – just turned 7, Steph – aged 8 and Maddy – aged 10 are rogaining ‘veterans’, having competed in their first rogaine at the 24 hour State Champs last year. Their parents don’t have a background in anything remotely to do with rogaining, but they’re up for some fun and physical activity, and don’t mind dragging the kids along for the ride. The kids were interviewed after the recent More than Morialta! rogaine.


More Than Morialta - Winners' Report

While the majority of us struggled to crack the 1000 points at the recent 4 hour rogaine around Morialta, there were some super-human groups who ran the whole four hours. We applaud, with jaws dragging in the dirt, the winning team and their accumulated 1980 points. Pieter de Wit, one of the winning team’s members, has written about his take on the event. Read on….


World Rogaining Championships – Pskov Region, Russia, 26-27 July 2013


From Russia with Love.

July 26-27 2013, I attended my third World Rogaine Championships (WRC), having participated in the Warrumbungles hosted by Australia in 2006, and the New Zealand event at Chevoit, north of Christchurch in 2010.

The Russian event, like the other WRC’s will be remembered for being a very tough course. The Warrumbungles were memorable for the heat and thick terrain (literally down on hands and knees in parts); Chevoit for being very steep, wet and windy and for the electric fences; and Russia for the head height stinging nettles, thick impenetrable undergrowth, humidity, marshes and mosquitoes.

Gee I love this sport!
