Waikato Orienteering host an urban rogaine series of ten events on Wednesday evenings starting early October. Our urban rogaines are predominately based around community parks in the beautiful suburbs of Hamilton with one event held in a neighbouring township.
Our urban rogaine events have a time limit of 45 minutes. You will receive an A4 map of the surrounding parks and suburbs (without street names) and can access a GPS tracked smart phone app call MapRun6 for tracking your progress. Thirty to forty control locations will be marked on the map with a circle. Your aim is to visit as many of these locations as you can (or want) in the 45 minute time limit. The points awarded per control vary, so some planning can help. There’s a mystery activity worth 100 points that can be completed between the first and last ten minutes of the event. Make sure you’re back before the time limit or you’ll have points deducted.
