Event description

A 90 minute rogaine on the rolling farmland of Okere Falls. The terrain includes farmland, native bush, some awesome gullies and amazing views from the top of the map.

​Paul Billing is the setter for this event and he has chosen some of the coolest spots on the map for his controls. The control placement also includes a whole lot of checkpoints for families and beginners who want to be able to explore without having to head too far out on the farm.

The event centre will be signposted from SH33 (take care when turning off the highway as this is a busy spot).

Parking will be on Trout Pool Road in order to save the farmers grass. Once parked on the road you can walk down to the club tent which will be next to a farm shed. Also, as this is a working farm, no dogs are allowed at the event.

The event is a 90 minute rogaine where you try to visit as many checkpoints as you can in the time allowed.  You can do it individually or as a team.  We will be using SportIdent, our electronic timing system.

Registration will be open at 9.15am, there will be a briefing and maps will be handed out at 9.40am.  The rogaine will start at 10am.

If you are keen for a little extra, we also need help collecting controls after the event. Please let Paul (setter) or Neil (controller) know at the event if you are keen.
