The Rogaine is a score event with the challenge to pick up as many points/controls as possible in the given time, with route choice left up to each competitor. Grid reference control descriptions are given out at the start of the event and you plot and plan your course in race time. The 24 hour is a tough enough event if you go at it hard and try to keep going for the duration especially if the weather is challenging, but once you have a decent level of navigational ability, itis well recommended. Some bring tent/ bivy and camp out, some come back to base at night where you can camp and get food and others just keep going. If unsure of your navigational abilities especially at night then please do not enter the 24 hour event. GPS's or other such navigational aids, food drops, organised outside support, etc are not permitted.
For 2023, the map requirement is EastWest Mapping Wicklow West 2021 edition.

The location of base camp will be revealed closer to the date.
