TORPEDO7 WICKED MID WINTER NIGHT ROGAINE SERIES

24th & 31st May, 7th June, 9th, 16th & 23rd August 2017

IT’S LIKE TREASURE HUNTING. A FUN WAY TO EXERCISE YOUR BODY AND AND YOUR BRAIN.

The entire event will be in the dark with a mixture of street and off road route options. It is perfect for those wanting to get prepared for the Spring Challenge at the end of September. Come along and bring your friends! 

These fun 2hour rogaine is suitable for gurus to newbies. Anybody that has a moderate level of fitness can participate. A high level of navigation ability is not required.

Rogaining involves teams of two to five members visit as many checkpoints as possible in the time allowed. Shorter duration rogaines often allow solo competitors. Checkpoints are scored differently depending on level of difficulty in reaching them; therefore teams choose a strategy (for example, to visit many low score checkpoints)and route selection becomes a vital component.

Teams travel entirely on foot, navigating by map and compass between checkpoints in terrain that varies from open farmland to hilly forest. Teams travel at their own pace and anyone from children to grandparents can experience the personal satisfaction that comes from cross-country navigation at their own level of competition and comfort. Team members stay within earshot of each other.

The best thing about rogaining is the social aspect. Everyone starts at the same time, and generally finishes at the same time, it is just the amount of ground that has been covered by teams that differs. Rogaining can be held in city environments or in farmland and bush, and you get to visit parts of the country you never knew existed.

1hour option available. Kids and families are welcome to come and have a fun time.

Don’t miss it, bring your friends!
