The Australian Championships are a 24-hour event, starting at midday on Saturday, 9 May 2020. The championship event will conclude at midday on Sunday, 10 May. The non-championship event is a straight 8-hour event also starting at midday, 9 May, and finishing at 8pm.
The entry system is now open, and the top ranked Australian team of Julie Quinn and David Baldwin from the ACT have been the first to enter and are now listed as Team number 1. Julie and David took out first place in the recent 2019 Australasian Rogaining Championship held at Binalong Bay, Tasmania ahead of their arch-rivals from the west, Dave Symons and Paul Williams.
Getting there is half the fun!
Whether you live in Adelaide or are flying in from interstate or overseas, why not take the hassle out of getting to the event site, and book a seat on our bus which will deliver you to the event site late Friday afternoon and bring you back to Adelaide late Sunday afternoon. Seat prices are a low $35.00 each way, which is much cheaper than hiring a car and/or the cost of fuel to get there and back.
The bus is a great way to meet and socialise with fellow rogainers, as well as being a safe way to get home if you are planning on spending a sleepless night under the stars on the Deceptive Lands in Goyder Country SA.
For those with more time to spare each side of the event dates, why not explore the nearby Clare Valley with its numerous wineries and bike trails? The historic mining town of Burra also has many attractions as well as bakeries and cafes.
If pre-event rogaine training is required, then a visit to the Caroona Creek Conservation Park would be an ideal spot to visit. This was the location for the SARA 2016 Spring 12-hour event and the map is available here.
