Description

To celebrate our 10 years, we will organise our 75th rogaine at the Christchurch Adventure Park on March 10. There will be 6-hour, 4-hour and 2-hour options, plus a Wicked Kids event. Participants will explore the park and its surroundings.

These fun 6-hour, 4-hour, 2-hour & Kids Fun rogaines are 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 the 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 differ. 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.

Kids and families are welcome to come and have a fun time.
