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

Rogaine on the Range - 2x6hr Rogaines - Dandenong Ranges   20th and 21st July  

Click here for Results for both Saturday and Sunday in Excel and PDf format.  Click here to view all team tag prints outs.

Brilliant July weather on the ranges.  A large turnout on both days. Plenty of great track walking and some challenging climbs further out to make the trail runners legs burn.  It was great to see so many families entering and we think a high number of less experienced Rogainers.   Provide you feedback on our facebook page.  Find us with the link the right.       

Congratulations the the winning teams and thank you to our important volunteer team with a special mention for Grant Kassell and family for organising and setting this event.

Tribute:
This event is being set and organised by Derek Morris as a tribute to our good friend and long time rogainer, Tim Dent, who passed away last year, too soon.   Below Derek explains the special significance of this event to himself and Tim.

Tim and I both started Rogaining in April 1979. We competed against each other at Kimbolton State Forest in a 12 hour event. The event used two orienteering maps of the same area – teams had to finish one map and then collect the other. Tim was partnered with Alex Tarr (a top orienteer) and they completed the event in approximately 6 hours, just half the allocated time. Tim’s fitness, stamina and navigational ability were outstanding due to years of bushwalking and orienteering. Not long after this event, Tim was hooked, and his teams were always up there with the best. Tim himself became a benchmark. 
The idea of again using two maps of the same area but with different controls marked on them to cover a small rogaining area has been on my mind for years. Tim was my vetter for the two events I set in the Kimbolton State Forest and surrounding areas in 1999 and 2001, This event will be a fitting tribute to a legend.
