What is rogaining?
Rogaining is a team sport that combines outdoor adventure with strategy. Think of it as an outdoor treasure hunt for all ages. Your goal is to race against the clock as you navigate to as many checkpoints (“controls”) as possible to collect points.
That’s where the strategy comes in. Every team approaches a rogaine in a different way. Some are out to race to every point on the course, while others want the kudos of finding the most challenging checkpoints.
Some just want to enjoy a good hike with friends! That’s the best thing about rogaining: we give you the map, and you choose your own adventure. Then when the clock stops, everyone sits down to swap stories over a good feed. On second thoughts, maybe that’s the best thing about rogaining!
Whatever challenge you want, we have the event for you. Choose to rogaine in the bush, on bikes, through city streets and across snow!
Meet Victorian Rogaining Association
Some of us have been rogaining for decades, others got roped into it by our significant others and have never looked back. What unites us is our love of the outdoors, the thrill of adventure, and a common goal: to encourage people of all ages to enjoy the sport of rogaining through fun, inclusive events across Victoria.
We’re a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers. If you want to be part of the fun, we’d love to hear from you.
