postheadericon Jarrahdale Jig Winter 6 Hour Rogaine - 10 August 2019

This event is a no frills rogaine that starts at 11.00am and finishes six hours later at 5.00pm on Saturday 10 August 2019.

It offers participants the opportunity to take a walk in the park, Langford Park to be precise, and the bush surrounding the lovely town of Jarrahdale.
The bush is pretty thick in parts, but there are plenty of tracks, and so good planning will be rewarded.
The course is not overly long and the controls are closely packed. The very best teams will go close to getting them all.
Those looking for a more leisurely afternoon might be tempted to drop by the local tavern or café.
There will not be a full Hash House (nor any camping) but a sausage sizzle will be provided.

See you there!

Adult $30, Junior (10 - 18) $15, Child (under 10) Free

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 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.
