postheadericon Covid19 update

The WARA committee is monitoring the Corona Virus situation, seeking to ensure our members safety and continued health.  We don’t want to cancel events needlessly, however we don’t want to put anyone at risk.  Our events usually have less than 500 attendees, but we also have a high number of 60+ year old members. 

So at this stage the May and June events, and Dryandra, have a status of “Pending Cancellation” subject to advice, environmental considerations and the consensus of experts we rely upon.  Note also that the 2020 National Event in South Australia has been cancelled – and the cycle has been pushed out a year.

The committee will update the membership with the situation as far as Rogaining is concerned – please keep monitoring Facebook and the website. 

If you have any questions, please direct them to the committee

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

 

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.

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.
