Like a Virgo…. (setting for the very first time)

The Like a Virgo Rogaine is a 24 hour event starting on Saturday 2nd September at 12 noon and finishing on Sunday 3rd September at 12 noon.

It is near Wandering, a short 1 hour, 40 minutes trip from Perth and 2 hours, 45 minutes from Bunbury. There will be plenty of room to camp with a hash house site on a friendly farmer’s property.  

This event is approximately 99% bushland with minimal access through fields as many are under crop at this time of year. The bush is beautiful and really open, with plenty of spiky vegetation at shin height to make you grateful for your gaiters.

Parts of the area are heavily used by dirt bikers resulting in a delightful maze of minor tracks, many unmarked on the map, which will keep you on your toes.

While setting this event we've seen plenty of kangaroos, lots of emus, and had one sighting of feral pigs which we gave a wide berth. And of course plenty of sheep who we shared the hash house site with one weekend.

We’ve set a few lovely controls a short stroll from the hash house for families and social rogainers.

As social rogainers ourselves setting has really made us pick up the pace to get out to all the wonderful locations to have everything ready for you all and we’re excited to hear your inevitable feedback <hr id=
