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.

Introducing....

The Mysterious Traveller Rogaine

The 2024 Australasian Rogaine Championships will be hosted in WA on the weekend of 7th and 8th September 2024.

Where is the Mysterious Traveller?  A mask, an old logging village, a Melburnian forester, and ochre springs.  We may need to navigate complex river valleys (150m a.s.l. to 300m a.s.l.).  There may be a few pines, but we are mostly in stunning Jarrah - Marri - Blackbutt forest.  We leave the open Nannup farmlands of 2016 far behind. We have a very easy trip here - less than 3hrs southish of Perth and less than 1hr Bunbury.  For all travellers, far, near, mysterious or not, the Event Bus will take you on a magical tour from the airport to the event via a replenishing town.  The Setting and Vetting team look forward to showing you some topographical mysteries!

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.
