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 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:

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.
