Sapphire Coast Runners invites members and their family/friends to participate in a fun urban rogaining event, followed by a BBQ lunch.
Rogaining is a team activity for people of all ages and levels of fitness. It is a orienteering type event and is a great way to explore around the local area (in this case Eden). It involves navigating your way around on foot to various checkpoints within a set period of time.
Date: 11:00am on Saturday 7th December 2019
A briefing, including a full explanation of the event and maps will be provided at 11:00am. Participants will set off running/walking at 11.30am sharp.
Meeting point: Rotary Park Eden
Event categories: Teams will participate in the 90-minute event, those that wish to do the children’s only checkpoints will nominate as such.
Teams: Entrants must be in teams of 2, 3 or 4 people (although this can be more if it is a family). Please note, the team members must stay together at all times.
Cost: As this is a club event it is free to enter, though at least one person in each team (typically the team captain) must be a financial Sapphire Coast Runners member – join now.
Entries: A team captain who is a SCR member and 18+ years must complete the online entry form prior to the event to enter their team. By entering Sapphire Coast Runners club event entrants agree to the Club Events Terms & Conditions. If you have any questions about this event beforehand, please feel free to ask Angus Lamb.
Prizes: Prizes will be awarded to the highest point-scoring teams in both categories, plus spot prizes (including one for best team photo taken during the event – winner to be decided by the organisers).
Compulsory gear: Teams must carry a mobile phone and hydration as well as the provided course map and questionnaire.
Navigation & Checkpoints
- The navigation in an urban event requires some ability to read a street map, so it is not difficult navigation but should be considered when selecting your team (it’s a great active, social outing with friends, but not if you are fighting about getting lost!).
- ‘Checkpoints’ are locations marked on the map and you will need to look out for some feature, and answer the questionnaire about what is at that point.
- Teams may visit any checkpoint and in any order.
- The aim is to collect as many points as possible during the nominated time.
- The point value of the checkpoints varies, with the most distant and most difficult to access checkpoints being worth the most points.
- Fast runners will not necessarily get the most points, if their planning and navigation is bad.
- The course is set up that teams that walk the event should be able to access a large number of checkpoints during the allocated time.
