|Description:||Two courses available: easier and harder.
The easier course will stay closer to the Start/Finish area and have most of its controls located on or near the many trails in the park. It will have a few tougher ones thrown in to make it interesting. The harder course will range through more of the park and will only share a few controls with the easier course.
A "Rogaine" is an "orienteering treasure hunt". There is no set course to follow. Controls are scattered throughout the mapped area and participants have a fixed time interval (90 or 180 minutes) to find as many controls as possible in whatever order they choose before returning to the start/finish area.
Points are awarded for each control based on difficulty and/or distance from the start area. Points are deducted for participants who return to the start area after their time limit expires.
(Pre-registration for meets is strongly encouraged. To this end a substantial discount is offered for pre-registered participants. Pre-registered participants are also guaranteed a pre-printed map.)
What should I bring? Wear something comfortable that you don't mind getting a little dirty! You might want to consider a change of shoes and socks! If it's wet outside, you might need a complete change of clothes! Compass and whistle are mandatory for all ONB events (whistles may be for sale at registration).
Pass the main Rockwood Park entrance at Lily Lake.
