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 Heights of Winter at the end of June and 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!
Wicked Kids Fun Event – specially created for the little ones!
Aiming to encourage the little kids (under 7yrs) to get outside and try rogaining, we are launching the Wicked Kids Fun event. It will be an 1 hour event with easier controls around the start/finish area. Kids must be accompanied by an adult and teams will be able to start any time between 5:30 – 7:30pm.
Some of the benefits of Rogaining for Children
- Provides a safe, fun environment in which to have an adventure
- Provides physical and intellectual development
- Helps develop spatial awareness
- Children are allowed the freedom to roam out of sight in a controlled environment
- It’s ok for kids to get muddy and dirty
- Teaches children about the countryside
- Children learn to read maps and navigate
- It’s educational and fun!
All participants must carry the following compulsory gear: polypro top, hat, gloves, fleece, rain jacket, whistle, headlamp with battery and a compass. For safety reasons, all teams must also take a mobile phone and the number should be given to the organisation (on the entry/waiver form). Make sure you also bring a pencil as a backup.
A huge thanks to our sponsors and supporters.
