Kome along to kunanyi kapers on Sunday May 19 for 6 or 3 hours of rogaining goodness with the bonus of a hash house only 10 minutes from Hobart CBD. You can sleep in and still make the 10am start. There's no lengthy drive home afterwards, meaning less time in the kar stewing about why you couldn't find checkpoint 100. (You won't be able to blame it on the map or the checkpoint setting - this event will be mapped and vetted to an inch of its life). The rogaine will kover the forest and established network of tracks and suburban fringe stretching across the front of Mt Wellington - from Mt Nelson in the south to Tolosa St Reservoir in the north. There will be excellent views of Hobart, the ever-tempting lure of the pub at Fern Tree and koffee van at The Springs. For those so inclined there will be plenty of opportunities to get some ascent and descent, but there will also be options to take routes that sidle across the hill.
