Rogaining involves teams of two to five members visit as many checkpoints as possible in the time allowed. Shorter duration rogaines often allow solo competitors. Checkpoints are scored differently depending on level of difficulty in reaching them; therefore teams choose a strategy (for example, to visit many low score checkpoints)and route selection becomes a vital component.
Kids and families are welcome to come and have a fun time.
Entries on the day will accepted with an extra fee ($5).
