Please do not bother the land owners pre or post the event. We are only able to hold these events with the very generous help of land owners allowing us access over their property. Non permission running or MTBing over their land could spell the end to Rogaining as we know it. Thanks very much for your support in this area.
What is Rogaining??
You have a set amount of time to find as many ‘controls’ as you can. You are given a map and a list of clues. In teams you try to find as many controls as you can – some controls are worth more points than others so you need to be strategic. Don’t be late getting back to base – 1min = 10 points off! See this post on Facebook for an illustrated description.
If you’re still not just sure what a ‘Rogaine’ is then check out this link for the official word.
Terry likes to think of it as ‘strategic mountain running in a team’. If you like running trails, running/tramping in the hills and mountains with your mates you will love rogaining. If you have any other questions we would love to talk to you. We are also happy to give some navigational tips to anybody that is interested. We have up to 6 and up to 12 hour options, that is, you have up to exactly 6 or 12 hours (there is no penalty for coming home early, coming home late incurs a time penalty) to get to and record the codes of as many check points as you can. Some check points are worth more than others so you have to be strategic about which ones you will aim for- it is very rear in a rogaine that you will get to all the check points.
