5 Waves in 15 minute intervals from 9:00am to 10:00am

Event Details

Join us for an iconic 6hr foot metrogaine starting in St Kilda and taking in the surrounding suburbs of the beautiful and historic Port Phillip council. The event takes in the stunning bay coastline and explores some of the amazing parkland and artwork from South Yarra all the way down to Brighton and taking in Albert Park, Elwood, Ripponlea and of course the ever interesting St Kilda.

As with all our Metrogaines, it will be a low cost event and you can walk, run, or use public transport around the course, but there is no cycling or the use of scooters.

It will be an event perfect for novices, and for families requiring pram friendly streets and playgrounds. We have allowed 6 hours for the event but there is plenty to discover if you prefer to only spend 4 or 5 hours on course. This would be a great way to introduce friends to rogaining and, in particular, our dear friends in the orienteering community are more than welcome to join in the fun.

How a Metrogaine works
The course uses question and multiple-choice answer checkpoints. The questions are intended to confirm your visit to the checkpoint and not test your IQ. Checkpoints are set on points of interest as much as possible. Find the location on the map then find the answer to the question matching a multiple-choice answer. Then mark off A, B, C or D on your answer sheet.

Volunteers Needed
Rogaines are run entirely by volunteers, and we’ll need help with this event! If you’d like to volunteer for a role, sign up here.



Map

The map will be based on the Melway. The map size is yet to be determined but will be no larger than SRA3, scale of 1:20,000 (5cm = 1km) printed on non waterproof paper. The answer sheet will be A4 printed on waterproof paper. The questions will be 2 A4 double-sided sheets printed on non-waterproof paper. All the street names are included but there are no contours.

No pets are allowed on rogaines and this applies to our metrogaine events as well.

Event Timeline

We will have three wave starts. This is to keep the numbers manageable for each wave enabling easier timing of teams at the finish. We would like the teams expecting to score high to start in early waves as we know these teams take longer to check their score sheet at the end. (Fast on their feet but not so fast at checking!)

You can decide which wave you start in on the day.

Likely event timing:
8:00 am      Registration opens and maps issued
8:45 am      Arrive for the first wave start and briefing
9:00 am      First wave starts
9:15 am      Arrive for the second wave start and briefing
9:30 am      Second wave starts
9:45 am      Arrive for the third wave start and briefing
10:00 am    Third wave starts
1:00 pm      First wave finish
1:30 pm      Second wave finish
2:00 pm      Third wave finish

Results will be read as soon as possible after the finish, probably around 2:30pm. For the results read on the day, teams in the third wave will only be allowed 5 minutes to hand in score sheets. Late score sheets will be included in the final results on the website. If you hope to get a prize chocolate, start early please.
