A Series of five events.
Each event will start at 6pm (maps available from 5pm) beginning with a short safety briefing. Competitors will then head into the hills in teams of two or more to collect as many checkpoints as possible within a 3 hour period. The Family event will be one hour long. The checkpoints vary in value and teams compete to finish with the greatest quantity of points.
For overall series placings 2 people from the team must participate in at least 4 of the 5 events.
The events involve navigation, strategy and teamwork and cater for a wide range of competitors from gurus to newbies to the sport of rogaining. A classic rogaine format runs over 12 to 24 hours, so these fun 3 hour rogaines are a great chance for beginners to tackle a more achievable length.
