Hi Folks - all details and entry for the NZ Secondary Schools 2019 Rogaine Championships are available on our website - https://www.moc.kiwi.nz/rogaine
Spread the word and encourage students to enter and enjoy being out there with other students across the country. The 3hr course will be aimed at novices/entry level to give you some experience and confidence. Good navigators will be rewarded if you choose optimum route choices between controls but less experienced teams should still locate the controls. You may just take a slightly longer time to get there?
Yrs 7/8 students can compete but it will be a non-champs grade. Keen to have you enter and gain some experience so that when you get to Yr 9 you will have some skills and confidence to give it a serious nudge - if you want to.
This will be an excellent event for any school Adventure Racing teams to do to hone those navigation skills as well as team dynamics. Consider splitting up your 8-person AR team into 4 2-person teams. If you have any energy left afterwards and would like to go out on the course during the dark hours to practice night time navigation we can consider that.
There is a pubic event to be held in conjunction. 3 and 6 hour options.
The rogaine is being supported by School Sport NZ, Orienteering NZ and the NZ Rogaine Association.
