Nearly 20 years on from the last event in this location, the Rheban countryside once again offers sweeping views of Mercury Passage and Maria Island and a pleasant landscape for a 6 & 12 hour rogaine event. The course is all set, the vetters are applying the polish and entries are now open.
Vast areas of impenetrable scrub have been excised from the course, leaving scenic and mostly runnable forest with some farm land in the mix. The 12-hour competitors should expect some climbs but those views make it worthwhile.
Intervarsity Rogaining Championships and NAMSF funding
The 2018 Intervarsity Rogaining Championships will be held in conjunction with the Australasian Rogaining Championships on 25-26 August in South East Queensland. The Nigel Aylott Memorial Sports Foundation (NAMSF) supports university students to travel to the event. NAMSF was set up in memory of Nigel, a keen adventure racer and rogainer, to encourage engagement in these outdoor sports.
The Intervarsity Rogaining Championships is open to all university students (full-time, part-time, undergraduate, or post-graduate). Students in a team must be from the same university. In awarding the travel subsidy, preference is given to undergraduate teams.
If you are interested please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 27th of May. If we get more than one application the RT committee will award the subsidy to the most experienced and successful team based on past performances.
