Rainbow Rogaine

Sunday 17th February 2019

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. It’s great you are interested in the Rainbow Rogaine, come and do it!
Rogaining is a cross-country navigation event where teams of 2 - 5 people visit as many checkpoints 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.
There will be refreshments available from the Lone Star Rib Shack - ribs, chips, drinks and more!
