2009 Scores:

See the photos and read the scores for this years Regional Fire Challenge.


This year's event will still follow a general Rogaine concept but be slightly different to last year's, with tasks somewhat grouped in sets but still scored over a set time frame. Crews will need to utilise Ground Support supplied transport to move between task groups.


The challenge will be held at Castle Hill Village, North Canterbury (on the way to Arthurs Pass) over the three days 15-16-17 October 2009 with a maximum of 16 crews participating per day. Location Map


Due to length of the day's challenge, crews and IMT participants that have long distances to travel are encouraged to spend the night/s at Castle Hill Village, bunk rooms will be available and there are camping sites at the location (refer registration form).


Lunches will be supplied for the day of participation with breakfast and dinner available if required on either side of a participation day (refer registration form).

Vehicle Fuel:

For those traveling from afar, the last fuel stops if you are coming from the West Coast will be Arthur's Pass (Challenge closing 6pm), if you are coming from the East, Springfield (Challenge closing 7pm). There is a Mobile fuel card station at Sheffield a bit before Springfield.

The ICP will also have available diesel fuel that can be metered to vehicles and charged back to the relevant Rural Fire Authority.
