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 Keep on Tracking Winter 24 Hour - 18-19 June 2022

The Winter 24 hour State Championship rogaine will be somewhat different to previous events. We will not need to erect our usual Hash House and Admin tents as we will be using the onsite facilities. The rogaine site is about two hours driving south east of the eastern suburbs of Perth. A few kilometers of gravel leads to a reasonably flat area where camping will be available for tents and caravans on Friday and Saturday nights with a slightly more restricted camping area than the usual. The rogaine country will be mainly forest and some farm areas. You will not need to cross many fences. The forest is mostly open with little scrub. The area contains a large number of tracks varying from good to impassable by vehicle. Hence the name of the event. The map will be of A3 size and the scale will be 1:50,000. Expect to see and hear lots of native animals. Hurdles of fallen trees are skillfully placed to catch tired legs and to provide a habitat for some of the animals.

Adult $60, Junior (10 - 18) $30, Child (under 10) Free

postheadericon The Containers for Change 12 Hour Rogaine - 14 May 2022

As a state, Western Australia has become very adept at recycling, and it is in this sentiment that we bring you the “Containers for Change Rogaine”. Set in a wonderful location (which is recycled) a little over an hour from Perth in excellent gully spur terrain.

The hash site (also recycled) will be in the small amount of farmland which has been loaded with controls for those who don’t wish to venture into the bushland too far. The bushland has some very well defined (yes that’s code for steep) areas and more broad terrain with a great mixture of vegetation with a predominantly open feel.

There is plenty of wildlife for those who will take the time to enjoy the views and some challenging controls for the competitive teams. There are one or two recycled controls too just in staying with the theme.

Luke VanBaaren and Will Blackshaw have dodged Bushfires and Heatwaves to set the event and are being kept honest by David Tapley and Tony Almond in the vetting space.

Entries close Wednesday midnight 10 days prior to event


Reminder - how to get the event info and directions - click the unique link in your original confirmation of registration email (not the Paypal receipt), and if not a repeat of this link will be emailed to you on the Thursday before the event.

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.
