postheadericon Escape From Isolation Winter 24 Hour State Champs - 1, 2 August 2020

Midday Saturday 1 August to Midday Sunday 2 August. Grimwade area, near Balingup and Kirup.

This event will be the 2020 State Championships and School Championship.

From the settors

All those West of Woop Woop know that a Pine Pursuit is no Fairytale. Those Livewires amongst us are keen to get Into the Wilganess and Escape from Isolation. When we first went into lockdown we all had grand plans of making the most of the enforced idleness to get out and get fit. Little did we allow for the lure of the refrigerator light, nor did we expect Netflix binges to be so addictive. So now it is time to flatten that curve around our mid-sections and put some real physical distance between us and everyone else.

Taking all this into consideration, we have planned an event that that has no steep hills, no deep gullies and plenty of nice rounded features that will be easy walking. It has been logged in the past so no big trees to get in the way of that line of sight. And did I mention heaps, and I really mean heaps, of tracks. The hash site is on an airstrip, but with the lack of interstate travel, it is unlikely to be used too often while we are there. But it is flat and heaps of room to spread out.

With Covid-19 restrictions in place there may be limits to the number of competitors allowed, so get in early if you want to escape from isolation.

Teams List

Adult $60, Junior (10 - 18) $30, Child (under 10) Free

Entries now closed (they close 10 days before the event)

EVENT DIRECTIONS will be available on the Monday before the event via the link in your original event registration confirmation email.

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 of 3000, 2500, 2000, 1500, 1000, or 500 points:

postheadericon Rogaine Training Seminar 2020 - post-COVID

Rogaine Training Seminar (PostCovid Training) 18th & 19th July 2020

Hi All!  With Rogaining ready to start up, many of you may be wondering how you can acquire / improve / hone / remember those Rogaining skills prior to the upcoming planned events.  Fear not!  Rogaine training is restarting! 

Sadly our residential training weekend at Dryandra Woodland is not feasible this year, so the annual Rogaine training seminar will be - TaTaTA - a predominantly online course with interactive talks given by the Training Officer interspersed with guided outdoor exercises that you can undertake at locations to suit you. 

The training event is scheduled for 18th & 19th July, two weeks before the next planned event.  Online and outdoor sessions will be scheduled over the weekend to permit a degree of flexibility in participation time and allow interactive sessions.

For more information, schedule, and to register, please contact Ann on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
Happy Rogaining All!

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.

People step forward for the event roles usually in the last few weeks leading up to the event which is alway very much appreciated.
