Who is it for?
Rogaining is a team activity for people of all ages and
levels of fitness. Everyone from elite athletes to families with
young children can enjoy rogaining. New rogainers are always
welcome and assistance is
always available from organisers to help get novices
The parts of the course you visit are entirely up to
you and your fellow team members. There are no set
routes and you don't have to spend the whole time on the course.
You can return to the "hash house" at any time for hot food and
a rest around the campfire, or a sleep, before heading out
Some competitive teams may cover up to 50km in a
12 hour event and even more in an event of 24 hours
duration. The distance you travel is entirely up to you. The
satisfaction comes in finding your way around the course
according to the route that you have chosen and navigating back
to the finish within the time limit.
What do you need?
Rogaining is good value for money; all you need is basic
bushwalking gear including a compass, whistle,
pencil, water bottle and comfortable and warm clothes and shoes,
a waterproof jacket and a team first aid kit. On events
involving an overnight period,
you may also wish to bring along camping gear and camp overnight
at the "hash house".
Rogaining is a fun way to enjoy the bush and test your
navigational skills. You do not have to be an athlete as the
main aim is to join in the challenge of the surroundings and
travel at your own pace. This event is suitable for beginners
and experienced teams.
