postheadericon What is Rogaining?

Rogaining is the sport of long distance cross-country navigation in which teams of two to five members visit as many checkpoints as possible in twenty-four hours. Teams travel entirely on foot, navigating by map and compass between checkpoints in terrain that varies from open farmland to hilly forest. A central base camp provides hot meals throughout the event and teams may return at any time to eat, rest or sleep. 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.

postheadericon Volunteering:- your association needs you!

Volunteering is part and parcel of the culture of rogaining in WA. Unlike many other states, the WA rogaining association has been able to keep prices low and event quality high by the many members who every so often kindly forego an event to help out with administration, hash house, setting, vetting, first aid, or truck driving duties.

Due to the reduced numbers of people stepping forward to do their bit in recent times, there is a real danger of having to undertake drastic measures such as having to reduce the variety of food available at events, and of having to limit hash house (food tent) opening times.

postheadericon Bibbulmun & Bubbles 18-19 June 2016

Approximately 35km in a SSE direction from Dwellingup all on good roads finds you at a riverside camping area and HH site that makes this
event one not to be missed.

With the Bibb Track and Murray river cutting through the middle of the course, this one's got something for everyone.

For those along purely for enjoyment, take a stroll along the Bibb or alongside the river. With a couple of nice river crossings -- at least they’re
nice at the moment -- go along one side and come back on the other.

It's a big river, a big track, with some big hills, a big bush area, all on a big map, just right for a state championship.

So if you’re up for a nice stroll, a nice campsite or you’re the competitive type looking to test your nav (& fitness) before the upcoming World Championships (to be held in the Aust NT) or the Aust Champs to be held here in WA later in the year -- then this event is ideal for you.

postheadericon Down South - Oz Champs 17-18 September 2016

Where will you be this September? There can only be one answer to this compelling question

– Down South!

Nannup – hidden gem of the south, territory of the mysterious Nannup Tiger, home of the free spirited music festival and soon to be retirement village of an enigmatic, ubiquitous true WARA legend – Warren Smith. They’ve even named the main street and a river after him in anticipation of his impending permanent residency.

Nannup will soon add one more item to its impressive list of claims to fame. This September, Nannup will play host to the 2016 edition of the Australasian Rogaining Championships.
