Welcome to the Victorian Rogaining Association

Rogaining is a sport for 2-99 year olds who enjoy the challenge of being outdoors. Whether you want to run, walk, picnic or simply camp at one of our overnight events we would love to see you.

The Ruffian 24hr Adventuregaine and 6hr Rushworth Rascal Bush Rogaine (Sunday only) - 11-12 Nov-2017 - Rushworth area

This year for the first time in Victoria we are offering a 24hr Adventuregaine. The event will start at 1300hrs Saturday 12th November and will consist of both foot and mountain bike stages. We are also offering a standard 6hr rogaine on Sunday starting at 10.00am.  The weekend caters for both the dedicated adventurers and our regular 6hr rogainers who like to do events as a single day trip. Online entry is now open with 'late date' being Wednesday 1-Nov at 11:59 pm. More information on the adventuregaine can be found here. More information about the 6hr Sunday rogaine can be found here.

Volunteer Update from Kelly (posted 18 October) - Complete list of positions for which there are no volunteers assigned;

Pre-Event – 2 Checkpoint placers available the weekend before the event.

Saturday Roles - Equipment Manager, Admin Manager, First Aid

Sunday Roles - Equipment Manager, Admin Manager, First Aid, Water Drops, General Helpers x 7

Sunday Afternoon or Post Event - Checkpoint Collection x 3

If you are not sure whether an adventuregaine is for you, consider the following:

  • No checkpoints are compulsory and you can choose how long and how many to do.
  • You can camp at either the start/finish assembly area or the remote transition (just put your gear in the correct transition box). 
  • Boiling water will be available at the remote transition, and there are two pubs in walking distance from the start/finish assembly area. 
  • There is no kayaking this year.
  • There are lots of stages to keep it interesting (and keep you awake).
  • You will spend time in some of the loveliest bush and farming areas in the state.
  • You will get to practice your navigation, teamwork, transitioning, strategising and mental strength for future adventure races in a safe, non-threatening and cheap event.
  • The event is perfectly timed for those preparing for X-Marathon, Godzone and XPD.
  • You will make the organisers super happy.

This is the last rogaine for the year. You'll have to wait until March for the next opportunity to join us.


Suburban Adventure Racing is back for the Summer of 2017/18

Geoff Hudson's popular Tuesday night series returns on 17 October and continues every week until the end of summer. There has been a change in the event pricing (but only for adults). The first event you do (not necessarily Event 1) is $7 for adults (was $5) then all subsequent events are still only $2. Scout members (Joeys, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers etc.) get free entry every time as do juniors who enter with an adult. Full colour maps are provided and interval splits at the finish. Cool down with a cordial and a slice of watermelon (or equivalent). Events that run up to the end of 2017 have now been posted in the Suburban Adventure Racing calendar (right hand side of this page). Update 18 October 2017. Sorry everyone I misunderstood the pricing. If you are a VRA member you just pay $2 each night. If you are not a VRA member or you want to bring a friend who is not a member, then they pay $7 on their first night and then $2 thereafter.
