Onto the Hume Fwy for a trip to Mount Burngoogee in the Murraguldrie State Forest, the venue for Interclub #5.
NOTE: The exact assembly location will be updated when available!
Interclub events are our annual competition with WaggaRoos. As with all our events, they’re open to everyone and cater to all abilities. Points are awarded to each competitor for starting, completing a course and gaining a podium finish. The points are tallied at the end of the year and the club with the most points wins the North East South West Interstate Challenge Cup (and who wouldn’t want to win something with a name like that!).
Burngoogee features a mix of terrain, with spur-gully, various vegetation and areas of complex rock. This is a quality area, used in 2022 for the Queen’s Birthday 3-day event.
|1||Long Hard||TBC||challenging navigation and control locations|
|2||Short Hard||TBC||challenging navigation and control locations, but shorter and less physically demanding than Long Hard|
|3||Moderate||TBC||easier navigation with options of using linear features (tracks, paths, fences, watercourses, etc.) or short-cutting cross-country, medium distance and generally not too physically demanding|

Note: Course distances are direct – you will travel 10% to 50% further depending on route choice and navigation errors.
