Terrain

Expect a mix of forest at the bottom of the valley, cliffs on the slopes and open tussock terrain up Montgomery Spur.

 

What is a flexi-rogaine?

It’s like a rogaine, but:

  • Although we encourage you to go out as a team in a true rogaine style, if you don’t have a buddy today, you can still participate!
  • There will be no mass start, come when you are ready and start anytime between 10.30am and 1pm.

 

Cost

Refer to http://papo.org.nz/faq/costs/

Note: Rogaine costs are identical to orienteering costs (e.g. if you enter as a team of 2 or 3 non-members, you will pay $20 for the first map and $2 per extra map).

 

Special Info

There is no toilet at the Mont Vernon valley track car park, closest available public toilets are in Vernon Terrace near the bottom of Rapaki road (1.2km away from event center).
