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.

Anyone who takes part in a rogaine is extended a complimentary 12 month financial membership. After this time your membership lapses but you do not need to re-register to take part in another event, because you keep your member number for life. The words register, join, become a member are synonymous but you have not actually entered a rogaine yet. If you have never entered a team or have forgotten how to do so, click on the link below
