It’s back for another year! On the 29th of July take part in the Great Forest Rogaine, a unique navigational challenge in the Whakarewarewa forest.

Choose your category of Men, Women, Mixed or Junior. Choose your team of 2 or more members. Choose your discipline of foot or mountain biking. Choose your time of three or six hours. On the day choose your route from the checkpoints available!

Your challenge is to plan a route to your teams’ strengths and collect points by visiting as many checkpoints as possible in the allocated time. But don’t be late back you will start losing points!

Set in the Whakarewarewa forest with arguably some of the best trails in the world strategy is key for competitors. You will need to link fitness, navigational ability and route choice as well as being able to make changes to your route plan if necessary throughout the race.

The Great Forest Rogaine is suitable for all levels of fitness. Take a coffee break partway through, finish early or power on through to the end. You set your course so you set your challenge whether that be for a family team, weekend warriors or top athletes.

While a great challenge in its own right, the Great Forest Rogaine is also a wonderful training event for those planning to do longer events with a navigational component such as the Godzone, Spirited Women or Spring Challenge. New electronic timing means rapid results to compare with your fellow competitors coming from both the local area and throughout the North Island!

Come join the fun, take part in the comradery, challenge your fitness and navigational skills and enjoy the free pizza and juice at the finish before the prizegiving where the category winners are announced.
