Course

Remember that Rogaine controls are set at an orienteering Orange skill level, so intermediate level orienteers will be able to participate in this event, not just the ultra-marathoners.

Not an orienteer or rogainer? Solid compass and map reading skills are necessary. You will be asked about your skills on the registration form. Your safety is our highest concern.

Also, people are free to come in and finish whenever they want, so if a team wants to end after two hours, that’s perfectly OK.

Details

60-65 controls, all located on map features
point value range: 30-90, value agrees with numbering (eg.- 40, 41, 42, 43......49 worth 40 points each)
control descriptions and course setter comments will be posted on website in April
there will be drinking water depots on the course in addition to hash house water
