postheadericon Yokine Oh-No Metrogaine โ€“ Saturday 20 Nov 2021

Imagine there's no fences
It's easy if you try
No parrot bush to scar us
Above us, only sky
Imagine all the people
Rogaining in the 'burbs
Ah.....
(apologies to John Lennon and Yoko Ono)

This year's last event is almost with us. Starting from a large park with plenty of onsite parking less than 10 km north of Perth city, the course has been designed for everyone, especially families and wheelchair participants.

This is WARA's first wheelchair-friendly event! All controls bar two are wheelchair accessible, and for the two that aren't there are nearby alternatives. Most of the course is flat, and we can show you where the hills are. If you have additional requirements or questions, contact Elena via This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or sms 0473 979 884

For families, there are 13 controls within 1 km of hash, the odd playground or two on the course and space to throw a Frisbee around before/after the event.

For the die-hard ultra-competitive types, there are more than enough controls and all the hills that suburban Perth can offer. Which is not many but you still won't get every control.

For regular rogainers, there are plenty of cafes (and a few pubs) on the course.

We have requested nice weather for the event and the sausage sizzle afterwards.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.....

Key times Registration and maps available from 12pm. Briefing 12:50pm. Start 1pm.

 

Facilities tba.

 

Maps TBA. Compasses are allowed but not really necessary. No GPS or equivalent. Use only the map provided - no separate street directory. Do not use PCs, Laptops, PDAs or mobiles for googling answers! (This is against the spirit of rogaining!) Also - no guessing! If we think you appear to have been transported in space by answering a question at a control impossibly far away, it will be disallowed - so there!

 

Scoring Instead of control cards to be punched competitors will be given a questionnaire with an answer column to be completed.

 

Equipment needed

 

  • Writing implements (a clipboard may also help for easier writing, and highlighter pens may also be useful).
  • Hat/sunscreen/ sunglasses, walking/running shoes, suitable clothing... it could be quite warm at this time of year.
  • A compass isn't needed although some people like to have one for orientation at junctions or bland areas.
  • Bring at least 1 litre of drinking water, per person, to the event. Whilst some parks have water taps, and there are some shops, for certain areas of the course you will need to be self-sufficient.

 

ยท       Bring Chairs for a post-event sit down.
