This low key and fun 3-hour event will reuse the public areas of the recent Town and Country Metrogaine around Kingston. The appeal in the last newsletter generated a volunteer – but we could use some more help. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Get your entries in now – the annual foot and bike mini-rogaine is for everyone! A mountain bike has been advisable for some previous MTBNav events, but a hybrid bike will do just fine for this exploration of Hobart’s eastern suburbs, parks and bushlands. In fact, if you are happy to be classed as “non-competitive” you can ride an e-bike! The important thing is to participate, to get out in the winter sunshine with friends, and maybe discover a few new quiet corners around Greater Hobart.

This year the event starts and finishes at the Montagu Bay Scout Hall and covers the streets, hills and reserves in Howrah to Geilston Bay and Mornington to New Town. Teams of 2 to 5 people can enter either the 3 or 5 hour event.

More details and entry are now open via our website.

This year’s 24 hour Tasmanian rogaine will be held on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd of December, so mark your diaries now.  “Run Rheban Run” is also referred to as the Tasmanian State Rogaining Championship 2017, but don’t let that put you off – it is for everyone, and there is always the 8 hour option. Get your team together now so that perfect team-mate doesn’t go and organise something else on that date.

How about a mini (3 hour) rogaine in the Kingston area on the afternoon of Saturday 3rd February? Instead of catering, a BYO barbie at Browns River beach afterwards. Do you want to set the course? Course setting is very satisfying, and this event has none of the organisational effort required of a bigger event. Contact Gary (This email address is being protected from spambots.

We would love to have someone to provide ideas and help in promoting rogaining and especially letting more people know what events are on. We have made a start on flyers for shops and community groups, and have a Facebook page, but how, for example, do we reach Outdoor Ed programmes and running groups? If you think you might be able to help, contact Gary (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to discuss.
