Notes

This page is for details of and entry to the 6-hour Rogaine which is open to Teams and Solo. For details of and entry to the 24-hour Rogaine see https://www.orienteering.ie/fixtures/rogaine-ireland-2022-24hr-wicklow-mountains/

Rogaining is a sport of long distance navigation on foot for teams of two or more over a twenty four hour period. The object of the sport is to score points by finding checkpoints located within a specially mapped area over the twenty four hours. As checkpoints can be visited in any order, strategy and teamwork are important features of the sport as well as endurance, stamina and navigational skills, with night navigation a key element. The team members must stay together at all times. We also hope that you will find the time to stop and admire the views of this beautiful part of Ireland.

We also have a 6 hour event for individuals or teams. This takes place during daylight hours only.

The event takes place in the Wicklow Mountains to the south of Dublin. The precise start/finish location is not disclosed until close to the event date (nominally marked as Lug summit on this page for now). The terrain is mainly open moor-land with large tracts of planted coniferous forest.

A central Event Centre will be manned throughout the event. Hot food will be available at this time and an area to pitch a small tent will also be available. Teams may opt to come back to the event centre or stay out on the competition terrain for the full 24 hours.

The winning team will be determined by totalling the number of points scored less any penalty points accrued for over-running the cut off finish time. In the event of a tie, the higher placing shall be awarded to the team that finished earlier.

Prizes are handcrafted in Glenmalure, Co Wicklow by Crannmor Pottery
