The rules of rogaining are set by the Australian Rogaining Association. They can be seen by following the link:
Some rules we emphasise are:
- Members of a team shall remain within unaided verbal contact of one another at all times whilst on the course.
- All team members shall simultaneously approach to within 5 metres of each checkpoint for which points are claimed.
- Competitors shall not deliberately rest within one hundred metres of a checkpoint unless the checkpoint is also a water drop.
