QRA hosted the 39th Australian Rogaining Championship near Manumbar on 25-26 August 2018. Terrain was dry open undulating farmland with route choices around a number of out-of-bounds areas. The All Night Cafe was superb. Expected rain held off until the last few hours of the event.

The leaders were very close with the top 4 teams separated by only 110 points. This year, the visting Kiwis were off the pace. Winners of the open categories were:

  • David Symons, Paul Williams (WA): First Men
  • David Baldwin (ACT), Julie Quinn (ACT), Jackson Bursill (ACT): First Mixed
  • Tamsin Barnes (Qld), Thor Egerton (Vic): First Women

The Intervarsity Championship was won by Fergus Macleod and Emily Rowbotham from ANU, who came 7th overall. The Interstate challenge was won by NSW in a tight contest ahead of ACT, Victoria, Tasmania and Queensland.

The full results are now available on the ARC 2018 website.
