Rogaining is a team sport based on navigating to checkpoints using a map.

Competitors are given a map with all the checkpoints on it and the checkpoints are worth different values. Competitors have a defined amount of time to visit as many of the checkpoints as possible. Teams plot their own route around the map, choosing how many checkpoints to visit and in which order. During an event each team finds their way round their selected course, adjusting their plans as appropriate. The team with the highest score within the time limit wins. In the event of teams with the same total score, the fastest of these top teams wins.

A Rogaine is a test of strategic route choice, map reading skills, physical fitness and team work. Rogaines by their nature cater for all levels of ability, as teams can choose a route and checkpoints appropriate for their skills and fitness. It's also a great family sport for this reason.
