Our final Rogaine for 2023 will be a Sunday 6hr Rogaine close to Melbourne. Note the date has moved to 19th November.
The You Yangs are a large regional park on the western edge of Melbourne and are known for their granite peaks and low lying forests. The course covers most of the park and has been set with beginners and experienced Rogainers in mind, you will have the choice of controls near the hash house or spreading out over the park and tackling several of the peaks. Come and have a scramble over the many boulders in search of elusive CP’s.
The You Yangs only 60km and 1 hours drive form the CBD.
Scale 1:15,000 i.e. 66.7mm on the map = 1km. The map will be printed non-waterproof paper on a non standard page size to be announced.
