postheadericon Wandooring in the Wandoo 9hr Rogaine - 28 October 2023

Being the final bush event for the year, we’ve decided to give you everything you could want to make it the perfect Rogaine. It’s just a short drive from Perth with lots of stunning open Wandoo country where you can enjoy beautiful late spring wildflowers (*still tonnes of wildflowers & orchids at time of entries opening), And amazingly the entire area of this map is being used for the very first time. The terrain is mostly gentle rolling hills with long vistas and in most areas the vegetation is very open. While the setters have seen lots of kangaroos, fortunately there are very few kangaroo ticks. Don’t miss this one!

Unfortunately we were unable to secure access for overnight camping, so this event will be a 9 hour Rogaine running from 11am until 8pm with maps available from 9am.

- from the Setters: David Symons, Paul Williams, Tony Scalzo, Peter Mann, Arielle Fontaine, Matthew Williams
