Auckland SS Rogaine Orienteering Championships - 26 August, 2010
Rogaine is the sport of long distance cross country navigation and is also a backronym for "Rugged Outdoor Group Activity Involving Navigation and Endurance".
Teams of two visit as many checkpoints as possible in the 90 minutes allowed. These checkpoints have different values depending on the level of difficulty in reaching them and they may be visited in any order with the winning team accumulating the highest points. Teamwork, endurance, strategy and route selection are all elements of Rogaining.
