For the first time in 2020 we’re kicking off our club rogaine efforts. The Narrabeen ‘Head to Head’ Minigaine is only three hours and runs through the gorgeous, leafy Narrabeen Lakes and Northern Beaches district.
=WHAT IS ROGAINING?=
Rogaining is the fun team sport of long-distance navigation – hiking through wilderness and/or urban areas with nothing more than a compass and a printed map. No phones allowed. Hit as many checkpoints as fast as you can, collect points and beat the other teams!
This is a flexible event which will cater for absolute beginners through to pros. Please mention when registering whether you are a beginner or experienced rogainer.
=KEY EVENT DETAILS=
We must meet on-site at the registration desk at 7am SHARP for the 9am-noon event. That buffer is there to collect your map, wristbands and course hints, to help plan your team’s route.
I will send more detailed information on access, parking etc. when it’s released.
A mix of crisp ocean scenery, Australian low hills, boggy wetlands and town streets. Many, many choices of route to take.
Please sign up here on the club site only. Club entries will close a few days before the official event website, and then I will do the official registrations for you.
Students – $15
General – $25
Note there is no reimbursement incentive for 2020 due to budget tightening.
Depending on the amount of interest, we can have separate teams. If you wish to establish your own team with your buddies, let me know and indicate your desired team name, or otherwise I will pair you up with a team based on ability.
