Coming Up - Winter Rogaine Series! Wednesday's 1 & 2Hr Afterwork Events
The entire event will be in the dark with a mixture of street and off road route options. It is perfect for those wanting to get prepared for Spring Challenge at the end of September. Come along and bring your friends!
Hosted by Nora Audra and Ian Edmond, the winter rogaine season is suitable for gurus to newbies.
Anybody that has a moderate level of fitness can participate. A high level of navigation ability is not required. Teams travel at their own pace and anyone from children to grandparents can experience the personal satisfaction that comes from cross-country navigation at their own level of competition and comfort. Team members stay within earshot of each other.
The best thing about rogaining is the social aspect. Everyone starts at the same time, and generally finishes at the same time, it is just the amount of ground that has been covered by teams that differs. Rogaining can be held in city environments or in farmland and bush, and you get to visit parts of the country you never knew existed.
1 hour option available. Kids and families are welcome to come and have a fun time.
Don’t miss it, bring your friends!
