Course

The You Yangs area is not large enough for the 8hr Foot Rogaine originally planned on our calendar and even a 6hr Rogaine will likely see a number of team clear the course.    We are offering an 8hr Duo-gaine as an alternative and are confident we’ll keep you busy for all 8 hours. 

6hr Foot Rogaine.  With the exception of Admin opening at 8:30am this is a normal 6hr Foot Rogaine format.  Admin will open for the 6hr Foot Rogaine at 8:30 when the Duo-gaine starts.   The 6hr Foot Rogaine will start at 10am.  Teams will only have 1.5 hours of planning time. This should not be a problem as the course map will be shorter than we'd normally set for a 6hr.  Fast teams please understand you may not get a full 6 hours of Rogaining as you are likely to clear the course.

See below for the event timing.

8hr Duo-gaine.

The You Yangs has an extensive network of purpose built Mountain Bike single tracks which are very popular with Mountain bike riders and the Rogaine maps will be base on the Nillumbik Emus Orienteering Club map.  Thank you Nillumbik Emus for the use of your Map. If you have never experienced these mountain bike track give it a go.

To overcome the lack of (overall) distance in the park for an 8hr event this Duo-gaine will start with a stage one Map of about 3hr for a fast team followed by a Cycling map of about 2hrs for the fastest teams and a final Foot map of about 3hr for fastest teams. 

Duogaine team may return to the transition point anytime after 11:00am  to start the Cyclogaine Map and return for the second foot map any time after 1:00pm.   Our setters intend the course to be too long for any teams to get the lot however that will be proved on the day.       

Due to the early start there will be no Map planning time for the Duogaine.   Map 1 will be issued at Briefing shortly before the start.  The cycle map and second foot map will be issued whenever you return to the transition point (but not before the times indicated).   Admin will open by 8:00am or earlier if we can get set up quickly. 

See below for the event timing.

Approved helmets must be worn for the cycling leg and these tracks are built for mountain bikes.
 

Map

Scale 1:15,000 with 5 meter contours.  Note this is quite different to our normal scale and contour interval.  More detail on the map and less distance to travel.   

The You Yangs has an extensive network of purpose built Mountain Bike single track which are very popular with Mountain bike riders and the Map will be base on the Nillumbik Emus Orienteering map.  Thank you Nillumbik Emus for the use of your Map. 

Location

The You Yangs Regional Park is only 60km from the Melbourne CBD.  We cannot get much closer for Melburnians and it is even closer for Geelong.

We have needed to move the event back a week due to other events planned at the You Yangs on the weekend that was orginally scheduled.   We feel it is better to move it than to cancel the event altogether. 

Accommodation:

There will be no camping at the Hash House.  The You Yangs Regional Park is locked over night and the Gates open at 7am.
