Canterbury Rogaine Series

Welcome to the Canterbury Rogaine Series

Coming up - The Christmas Twilight Rogaine - Wednesday, 5 December 2018

Ho! Ho! Ho! The original Christmas Twilight Rogaine returns in 2018!

Anybody that has a moderate level of fitness can participate. A high level of navigation ability is not required. Teams travel at their own pace and anyone from children to grandparents can experience the personal satisfaction that comes from cross-country navigation at their own level of competition and comfort. Team members stay within earshot of each other.

The best thing about rogaining is the social aspect. Everyone starts at the same time, and generally finishes at the same time, it is just the amount of ground that has been covered by teams that differs. Rogaining can be held in city environments or in farmland and bush, and you get to visit parts of the country you never knew existed.

Kids and families (and dogs on a leash) are welcome to come and have a fun time.

Don’t miss it, bring your friends!
