postheadericon Spring 12 Hour Rogaine - 20 October 2018

Setters urgently needed!

The October 2018 Spring 12 Hour event is now just over a month away - and we are yet to get volunteers to set the event.

Without setters and a safety officer, the event will have to be cancelled.

Nathan Seal and Ken Maxfield have offered to vet the course, but with such limited time potential setters will need to get moving!  The committee have all-but secured the location, we have some experienced (but injured) Rogainers who are more than happy to Mentor potential setters - and we have standby volunteers for mapping the chosen controls locations.

Do you know anyone who could help?

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.


Due to the reduced numbers of people stepping forward to do their bit in recent times, there is a real danger of having to undertake drastic measures such as having to reduce the variety of food available at events, and of having to limit hash house (food tent) opening times.

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.
