Australasian Rogaining Champs
November 9/10th 2019
  Rogaining Tasmania is excited to announce that the venue for the 2019 Australasian Rogaining Championships is St Helens, Tasmania. The event will be held on the weekend of 9 - 10 November, 2019. This fantastic rogaining area has terrain ranging from steep areas with extensive granite outcropping to flatter, more subtle terrain that was historically utilised for tin mining. The map includes the sleepy coastal township of Binalong Bay and the world famous "Bay of Fires" area, a mecca for travellers who love the outdoors. See Binalong Day and Night for more information.
World Rogaining Championships
August 1st & 2nd 2020
  These will be held in Sierra Nevada, California, USA. The competition area is about 200km2 in size, located in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The average altitude in the area is around 2300m, the highest point is 2665m, and the lowest point is about 1900m. Slopes are mostly moderately hilly with some steep areas and deep ravines. Snow covers the area for 7-8 months of the year, which contributes to the forest being very open and runnable with just small patches of thick vegetation. The forest ranges from open grassy areas to mainly pine forest and some rocky granite outcrops. Streams in the area will be mostly low during the summer. See WRC 2020 for more information.
For those keen, there will be a weeks of Orienteering available prior to the event. See California Orienteering Festival

Highland Events Spring Rogaine Saturday 14th September, Tarras, Central Otago - 12, 6 & 3hrs
Central Otago has some of the best rogaining areas in the country and the team at Highland Events know how to showcase it. Yes, it usually involves hills (some often steep) but an important part of rogaining is the planning to minimise the amount of climb. Another important part is the fun and exploring new country. This event had check-points in old mining tunnels and past the relics of gold stamps. These events are well worth the traveling time and cater for the most experienced to the beginner.
