April 2x6hr Saturday

Taking the Waters 2x6hr Bush Rogaine

Saturday  21-Apr-2018 - 10:00 am start 4:00 pm finish

Sunday  22-Apr-2018 - 10:00 am start 4:00 pm finish

 

Thank you Vic, Merv and Duncan for volunteering to Organise and Set this event.

Taking the Waters is a centuries old expression that refers to the English and European custom of visiting a spa village to drink or bathe in natural mineral spring water to improve one’s health.

The twin towns of Hepburn and Hepburn Springs are the setting for two 6 hour bush rogaines; 10am to 4pm on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 April.  Take your pick!

For those with a relaxed approach to rogaining or coming off a summer of Street O, the controls in and around Hepburn Springs will ease the transition and provide a good insight into the rich heritage of this remarkable area.  For the purist eagerly awaiting the first “bush” event for 2018 there are plenty of controls that will test the best.

The bush areas are generally open going, steep in places.  Some of the major gullies have sections of rather thick blackberries.

The course provides the opportunity for a coffee at the General Store, and even gun teams may be tempted by an icy pole on the run from the Springs Café.  Carry some cash.
