Not all of the competitors at the rogaine champs were there to win some just wanted to make friends.
LLama Rogaining Chile 2017 invite participants to their Rogaining event on April 1, 2017 in Chile. 3 hour, 6 hour and 12 hour options. MTB or on Foot. See website for more details.
I spent the past week in the wonderful escape of Castle Hill as a coach on the ONZ U23 Squad Camp. This was a great opportunity to interact with the up-and-coming elites of NZ orienteering and bust out some quality hours for myself.
Elite orienteers use it. Ordinary orienteers use it. GPS-tracking. Analysing your race with help from GPS has become common practice. Tools like QuickRoute and Livelox make it very easy to spend time on orienteering long after you return from the forest.
