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.

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.

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.
