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.

Crunchy Nut Cluster Rogaine 9/10 August 2014
In 1894, The Kelloggs brothers invented cornflakes. In 1976, the Phillips siblings created rogaining. What do these two have in common? Absolutely nothing, unless you wish to run an event that’s both crunchy and delicious. Why the Kelloggses and Phillipses never got together to combine them is anyone’s guess, but it’s probably because they lived in different countries or perhaps because Messrs Kellogg died before rogaining was invented.
