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.

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:

El Lobo Malo Rogaine 15 March 2014
You won’t have to go far, an all bush Rogaine to the East just the other side of Sawyers Valley. A perfect area for Rogaining, offering diversity and a real challenge. Whether this is your first time or you’re a seasoned Rogainer, the El Lobo Malo will have something for everybody. Lots of features for easy navigation (in parts), steep sections, flat sections, clearings, thick bush, plenty of paths and some real distance for those that need it.
Based on a map used in the past and easy to get to, less than an hour from Perth CBD.
The 6 hour Rogaine is a great place for newcomers to dip their toes in the water, although the chances of finding water are slim. The map will have plenty of manageable and reasonably good scoring loops for newcomers to attempt. For developing and more adventurous rogainers the course will have some new challenges and for the speed kings there will be some planning and distance challenges for you.

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.
