The event center is located at the Mount Vernon Valley Track Car Park at the South end of Hillsborough Terrace. There is limited car park capacity at the event center but parking is also available in Hillsborough Terrace.

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.
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).
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).more info
