Dates and venues for the 2022 Rogaine Series are now published (see the panel to the right) and entries will open shortly.

Remember that the first 50 people to enter all races in the Auckland Bivouac Outdoor Rogaine Series go in the draw to win a fantastic new pack from Bivouac Outdoor.

Coaching

There will be free coaching available for anyone especially newcomers from 9:30am. This is a great opportunity to get some advice and tips on map-reading and rogaine planning from experienced orienteers - they will be wearing high viz vests. Check out the website www.rogaineseries.co.nz for tips on understanding maps and orienteering.

What to bring

  • • Walking or running shoes, preferably with good grip.
  • • Comfortable clothes to walk or run in. Warm clothes and clean shoes to change into afterwards.
  • • A compass if you have one - we have a limited number available to borrow on a first-in-first-serve basis.
  • • Water and snacks.
