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.

Are you proud of your rogaining achievements?
Do you sometimes feel you want to let everyone know what you've achieved, and are looking for a more subtle way then shouting it from the rooftops?
Did you know that there are points achievement badges available for purchase from WARA?
They are available for those Rogainers that achieve the points milestones in bush Rogaines:
Then why not go to http://wa.rogaine.asn.au/badges and place your order now.

Short Lovers Rogaine
Only 1 hour from Perth, before you reach Toodyay and overlooking the Avon river – Lovers Lane is a rogainer’s dream. In winter, the lush green grasses of the open farmland and rolling terrain are spectacular to behold. While post summer the lush grass is likely to be gone, the area has a bit of everything – open farmland, some stunning Wandoo forest and a bit of scrub (only a little bit, honest!) to keep you on your toes. There is plenty to see including old quarries, stunning views across the landscape and some lovely rock formations.
