What is Rogaining?

In this form of adventure race, teams of two to three members visit as many checkpoints as possible in the time allowed. Checkpoints are scored differently depending on level of difficulty in reaching them; therefore teams choose a strategy (for example, to visit many low-score checkpoints or fewer high-value checkpoints). Teams travel entirely on foot and at their own pace, navigating by map and compass between checkpoints in terrain that varies from open ledges to narrow trails. Anyone from newbies to adventure experts can experience the personal satisfaction that comes from cross-country navigation at their own level of competition and comfort.
