PRE-ENTRY is required BEFORE 8pm Friday 15th March.


Our popular Dogaine event is happening again this year in March! A rogaine is a navigation event in which you and a teammate (and maybe your dog!) compete to collect as many checkpoints in your allocated time as possible. You will receive the map before starting and have a short amount of time to plan out your route. Checkpoints are worth different amounts and you have to decide on the best route and which checkpoints you want to get. Most of the travel is off track and up at Coronet Peak you will have some tussock and rocky terrain to descend. 

Please note you will NOT be allowed to run on the mountain bike trails as this is a safety hazard. 

You have the options of a 2 hour Rogaine including one ride on  the chairlift, or the 4 hour with unlimited chairlift rides. There is also be a special 'take your dog' category (hence the name Dogaine) and you can use the gondola car on the chairlift to transport your furry friend up the mountain with you. From the top you will need to plan your way down to visit as many checkpoints as you can. The checkpoints are worth different amounts, rounded to the decade (ie. 32 worth 30 points, 85 worth 80 points etc.)

You should ideally find a teammate to rogaine with, but if you can convince us of your rogaine and outdoor experience we are okay for you to go solo.

You must be back after 2 or 4 hours, otherwise you will be deducted 20pts per part minute late, eg 30sec late -20pts, 2min 5 sec late -60pts.

Team members must stay together at all times. You may compete solo at the organisers discretion based on experience.

Competitors must take compulsory gear – jacket and cellphone.

Competitors shall not discard litter or unduly damage or disturb native flora or fauna.

Do Not travel on the mountain bike trails. There are cliffs, steep and rocky terrain, and skifield equipment hazards. You are competing in mountain terrain and the weather can change quickly. Hypothermia is a risk. Competitors must take caution, especially traversing or going down steep slopes and not go anywhere they are not comfortable with.
