Sunday Training Rogaine

As done for the Redcastle Rogaine in July 2023 we are planning to offer coaches for training newer teams on the Sunday.  We will arrange an experienced rogainer to travel with each trainee team to provide coaching. The coaching will be aimed at people new to bush navigation or those who have tried some rogaining but often fail to find checkpoints.

Teams wishing to participate in the training will be provided with a separate link to register. As we confirm the availability of coaches, we will invite those registered to enter via a link sent by email. The first to register will be the first invited to enter. If you are a group of friends, register as a group and we’ll keep you together. The training teams will score results in the Sunday rogaine however the focus is on learning not scoring. You will also be able to register as an individual as we will create teams of 3 to 5 people to allocate you a coach.
Note: Due to Working With Children restrictions we ask that any participants, without an accompanying adult, be over 18.

Please Do NOT enter the normal Sunday event if you want a coach – use the link we will provide.

Volunteers Required

Every event needs volunteers. With this 2 x 6hr format you can volunteer one day and compete the other day. Or you can volunteer to assist with the start only and compete on the day or just go for a casual walk to visit a few checkpoints while it is quiet at the hash house. The Start Only General Helper role may be done by a team who is competing, with one doing the volunteer role, while the other does last minute event preparation. Team members can then swap over a couple of times during the morning. This way you can volunteer without missing out on doing the event.

We’d like to get the key roles filled 2 to 4 weeks before the event – CP Placers, Admin Manager, Navlight Manager and Equipment manager are key roles to be filled early. Check the Volunteer Roster for roles still vacant.

Note the Volunteer Roster is updated every few days and is not live.
