12hr: Starts Times TBC however expect 10:00 or 11:00 am
TBC however we are looking at the Wombat Forest.
The rogaine is set in the lovely Kimbolton State Forest. This is on the western edge of Lake Eppalock, which is at 30% capacity. The forest is open and vegetation is mainly light, with a few moderate areas especially in the north east that may slow teams. Terrain is subtle to gently undulating with an intricate spur gully network. There are a few unmarked fences in the forest (be warned) and not all roads and tracks are marked on the map. Generally the course is fast and should test teams’ navigational abilities, especially at night.
A 6hr all daylight event and a 12 hour event which will include about 5 hour of night navigation for those who stay out until late.
There will be camping at the Hash House Saturday evening.
Online Entry will opened by 14-Aug with late fee applicable from 11:59 pm Wednesday 2 September. Online late entry will close about Tuesday before the event. Check the web site for the latest time after late date.
