NSWRA hosted the 36th Australian Rogaining Championship and third Australasian Championship in Capertee National Park on 10-11 October 2015. Rob Preston and Damon Goerke won overall, reminiscent of their second in the Warrambungles WRC in 2006. This year, the top three teams were from the open category (non-veterans). Weather was warm with thunderstorms and refreshing rain on the first afternoon. Terrain varied from open and pleasant fields to prickly scub and tough rocky hills, rewarded by spectactular views. The rogaine will be uniquely remembered for its 11 hour night devoid of any moon.
