Greig Hamilton has prepared incredible route visualisation information that shows detailed route information including distance, estimated climb, splits and checkpoints visited (map) for every team.

If you carried a GPS during the event and have a route you would be happy to share, we would love to see it. Please upload it to Rogaining Tasmania’s RouteGadget site. Your route will be displayed on the event map.

Three Sleeps to Go

We are looking forward to seeing you in just a few days. The Hash House will be open for arrivals from 13:00 on Friday. When you arrive, there will be marshals to direct you to a parking space and a campsite. Space is adequate for our expected numbers, but limited. If you are among the earlier arrivals, please do your best to help ensure there is still room for later arrivals. You can stay at the campsite for as long as you wish after the rogaine has ended.

This is a bush campground with no permanent structures. We will provide marquees with tables and chairs (seating for 100, but please bring your own seating if you’re not flying from interstate), drinking water, hot water for tea/coffee, washing up facilities, rubbish bins and portable toilets. Please note that you will need to use your own crockery and cutlery at the Hash House.

Catching the bus from Launceston? If you have booked, but did not receive your email a few weeks ago with bus details, please contact peter.tuft@arc2019.rt.asn.au.

Bus pick-up times and locations are:
Launceston city: Willis St carpark, bus departs 16:30
Launceston airport: Meet our coach coordinator inside the airport terminal; he will be near the exit doors from the baggage carousel area with a “Rogaine” sign, bus departs 17:30.

On Sunday, the bus will depart the Hash House at 13:30.

Article from NSW Rogaining Newsletter

The following article is reproduced from a recent NSW Rogaining article. Many thanks to Tristan White from NSW Rogaining for allowing us to use it.

…. To get a better feel about the event, I asked coordinator Peter Tuft some more questions to help entice to make the trip across Bass Strait:

Tristan White: Hi Peter, many people will have seen your name around in NSW events, but haven’t met you. So a few questions about you to start. Firstly, what did you do for a profession?

Peter Tuft: I retired a couple of years ago after more than 20 years as an independent engineering consultant in the oil and gas industry, initially in design and more recently focusing on safety issues. Knowing what we know now I’m not thrilled about having worked in a fossil fuel industry, but one’s career path is not entirely under one’s own control and we didn’t really know about climate change all those years ago when I landed in that area by chance.
