postheadericon Yokine Oh-No Metrogaine – Saturday 20 Nov 2021

Imagine there's no fences
It's easy if you try
No parrot bush to scar us
Above us, only sky
Imagine all the people
Rogaining in the 'burbs
Ah.....
(apologies to John Lennon and Yoko Ono)

This year's last event is almost with us. Starting from a large park with plenty of onsite parking less than 10 km north of Perth city, the course has been designed for everyone, especially families and wheelchair participants.

This is WARA's first wheelchair-friendly event! All controls bar two are wheelchair accessible, and for the two that aren't there are nearby alternatives. Most of the course is flat, and we can show you where the hills are. If you have additional requirements or questions, contact Elena via This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or sms 0473 979 884

For families, there are 13 controls within 1 km of hash, the odd playground or two on the course and space to throw a Frisbee around before/after the event.

For the die-hard ultra-competitive types, there are more than enough controls and all the hills that suburban Perth can offer. Which is not many but you still won't get every control.

For regular rogainers, there are plenty of cafes (and a few pubs) on the course.

We have requested nice weather for the event and the sausage sizzle afterwards.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.....

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 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.
