Event Information

A fundraiser for the Motueka High School Adventure Racing team. See skirainbow.co.nz for details.


Welcome to the inaugural Rainbow Rogaine. Set in the alpine basins that surround Rainbow Ski Area, we have planned a 3-hour course that will encapsulate what is unique and special in the area. Having the ability to drive to 1550-metres above sea level and begin the event there is exceptionally unique for a rogaine of this length.

Rogaine Explained

Rogaining is a cross-country navigation event where teams of 2 - 5 people visit as many check- points as they choose in the 3-hours. The checkpoints are free-choice and have different point values so strategy and route selection becomes a vital component. A form of orienteering, it combines tramping, navigation, competition, and strategy. The event caters for all levels of fitness and enthusiasm - but keep in mind this event is in the mountains, using only a map and compass, it’s a bit like a tramping treasure-hunt.

All proceeds go to the Motueka High School Adventure Racing Team
