Rogaining Tasmania's next event will be the Marieville Mayhem Metrogaine on Sunday 22 May 2022. The MMM offers something for everyone, from runners and walkers attracted to the bushy hills of the Waterworks and Mount Nelson, to pavement pounders happy to explore the urban shores of the River Derwent. Starting at the scout hall on Marieville Esplanade, Sandy Bay, the map stretches from the Truganini Track in Mount Nelson, to Ridgeway reserve, Knocklofty, and the Domain. Explore some of the lesser-known trails and visit checkpoints that celebrate the area’s history and culture. You’ll encounter beautiful bushland, delightful murals, abandoned fields, and the odd intact hut. In the urban areas, visit public artworks, beaches, novelty letterboxes. Participants willing to tackle the area’s notorious hills will be rewarded with beautiful views and high points (excuse the pun).

The 6 hour Town & Country Metrogaine will be held on Sunday 14 May, around and south of Kingston. The course covers suburbs around Kingston, bushland including Peter Murrell Reserve and the Tinderbox area, and rural country to the west and south as far as Margate. There is plenty of gorgeous coastal scenery as well.
This is an event that is about scenery, interesting locations, and route choice dilemmas, with less emphasis on difficult navigation. It’s your opportunity to explore as much or as little of Hobart’s southern fringe as you wish, with plenty of choice. Most of your routes will be on roads or tracks, or perhaps across paddocks. There won’t be much bush or scrub (unless you really want it). You will have the chance to stroll around with time for a coffee at the beach, or to run flat out for 6 hours and still not get all the controls (we hope!).
The hash house is at the Huntingfield Pony Club in the southwestern corner of Peter Murrell Reserve. Maps will be available from 8:00 am, start time is 10:00 am, finish at 4:00 pm, light supper available from the hash house after the finish (BYO bowls, plates, cups and cutlery). Vegetarian and gluten free options will be available.
The map is 1:25 000, specially prepared for this event with particular attention to showing out-of-bounds areas and routes through them. The hash house is close to the centre of the map.
Cost to enter is $35 for adults, $30 for concession holders, $20 for juniors and $90 for families. Children under 10 years of age are free.
To qualify for the concession rate a competitor must be a full time student, 18 years or older, or the holder of a Centrelink pensioner concession card. A family team consists of up to two adult parents or guardians together with at least one other family member under 18 years old. If a family is spread over two teams, pay for two teams and contact the organisers for a refund after the event. A team that has a member under fourteen years of age must also have a member eighteen years of age or over.
One person can enter and pay for a whole team, but they will need to know the Date of Birth for each team member. It is OK to enter seperately as an individuals if you know your team name.
Entries can be made through webscorer. Entries close Tuesday 9 May at 11.59pm.

State Championship 24 Hr & 8 Hr Events
Update 14 June 2017: This event is currently under review due to a number of access issues identified through the field vetting process with phytophera and eagle nesting restrictions affecting the access and size of the area available for the event. The organisers are looking at options and we hope to provide an update soon.
Set on Tasmania's east coast with views of Maria Island, the stunning coastal scenery, varied vegetation types and substantial elevation will make this a memorable event. Combining an 8 hour event with the Championship 24 hour there will be something for all the family. More details to follow.

It\'s been a few years since we last had a full twenty-four hour rogaine on offer, which is why Rogaining Tasmania is excited to announce our next big 24 hour event: The Ross Rummage.

The competition area is near the town of Ross which is 80km south of Launceston and 120km north of Hobart. The terrain is a mixture of farmland and forested areas which are predominately undulating dry sclerophyll with light to medium density understorey. The elevation range is approximately 400m. The course setters are Gary Carroll and Matt Chamberlain. The vetters are Bernard Walker and Sara Brain.
The hash house is located on Auburn Road to the north west of Ross. Detailed directions will be sent to entrants at a later date.
