Rogaining Discussed on ABC Radio 774

In January ABC Radio 774 were searching for sports that originated in Melbourne.  An inquiry from a VRA member alerted the ABC to Rogaining and Neil Phillips, a co founder of Rogaining, discussed the sport and it's origins on the Breakfast show.    Listen to the Audio.   Thank you Neil for making your self available to yet again promote our sport.

Rogaining Video on Youtube

At the West of Spargo Rogaine in June 2017 one of our young Rogainers was filming for his VCE Media Studies.  View on Youtube.   Jachob Dynes has been Rogaining since 2009, with his father, Bernard has won the family category many times, set his first Metro-Cyclogaine course in 2016 (we are sure he's our youngest ever course setter) and teaming with Adventure Racer Luke Haines was over all runner up for the combined two day foot and cycle Pinch Gut Rogaine near Daylesford in 2015.   Yes he is also a keen cyclist.  Enjoy his VCE project which is a dramatization.
