President's Message, April 2017

We're thrilled with how well 2017 has started for SA Rogaining. The Twilight and Velogaine events were in great locations, with wonderful weather and had lots of you in attendance. And anyone who attended, whether as a competitor or volunteer, is now in the running to be Rogainer Of The Year. Could it be you? This prestigous new award will win you huge bragging rights, as well as some swag from our sponsors IO Merino, Orienteering Services of Australia and The Running Company.

Every year Peter Milnes puts together the stories that exemplify the quirky situations that arise in our unique sport. Here are the Lunartic Awards for 2015.


President's Message: The Festival of Rogaining Begins!

It's festival season in Adelaide, and in one month the rogaining season begins - our own festival of rogaining!

There's lots to be festive about this year. In SA, we'll have our regular events: Twilight, 6hr, 12hr, State Champs and Minigaine. But in addition, this year we welcome the velogaine! This is a 2 or 4 hour dedicated cycling rogaine set around Kapunda. There are quiet back roads just waiting for you and your family & friends to spin around looking for orange and white. No rogaine is complete without some hearty food and banter afterwards, and in the velogaine this will be at a relaxed country pub. I can't wait!

No festival would be complete without a headline act. This year it is the World Rogaining Championships, to be held just up the road outside Alice Springs. This will be in stunning terrain and should be one of the best World Championships ever held. In the true tradition of rogaining, anyone can enter this event - so you can be a novice and compete next to the absolute best competitors in the world! A small number of entries are still available.

The opening act of the festival is the Twilight 4 hour event. To be held in and around Belair National Park, this will be a great one to get your rogaining season rolling. It's less than 4 weeks away, so enter now!

I look forward to catching you all at one of SARA's fabulous events this year. Let the festival begin!

Mark Porter, President SA Rogaining Association


President's Report - Feb 2015

Now that the festive season and the peak of summer have wound down, it's time for the 2015 rogaining season to wind up!

We have our usual smorgasbord of events on offer this year with each of the following durations represented: 3, 4, 5, 6, 12 & 24 hours. And for those of you who use rogaining as an opportunity to see more of our state, you won't be disappointed. We'll journey from the water's edge at Goolwa to the iconic Flinders Ranges, smell the pines in Kuitpo and explore the mid North around Peterborough. And who knows what surprises we'll have for you in the minigaine... Frankly, I can't wait to get started! (By the way, we get started on 21 March - book your spot now!).


2014 Lunartic Awards

The 'Lunartic' Awards are presented to rogainers or volunteers for humorous, unusual, or interesting incidents that have occurred before, during, or after an event. After 2- years, the awards are still going strong, thanks to Peter and Sue Milnes. The winners for 2014 are right here.


I/O Merino Guest Reviewer says...

Rebecca enjoying her IO Merino and the views in Mt CrawfordThe I/O Merino women’s longsleeve Rapids V-neck base layer lived up to its reputation at ‘Hale and Hearty’ 12 hour Rogaine this September. Surviving the tough conditions of the event, from kangaroo thorns, mid-20s sunshine and crispy cold moonlight.

Personally, I have been a merino convert for some time, but was particularly impressed with I/O Merino standard. I wore the Rapids V-neck base layer for the full 12 hours, and it kept me cool when I wanted it to and cosy warm when I needed that also, and it didn’t stink or feel grimy after a tough day in the rogaine office.

It’s light. Comfortable. Itchiness free. And by far the softest merino garment I now own. For versatility, it’s exceptional as it’s also stylish enough to hang-out in after the event around the campfire.

Rebecca's verdict: Recommend. The I/O Merino is up there as the ‘bestest of them all’
