Summary of what will be different to stay Covid Safe for this event:

Entry
When entering you will have the option to enter 1 of 4 events. The 10am, 12 Midday and 1pm starts are separate wave starts of the 6hr Rogaine,   The 11am start is the only wave start for the 12hr Rogaine.  Please enter the event durations and for the 6hr Rogaine the starting at a time of your preference and note you must check in and start at that time on the day. This is a Covid safe requirement to limit groups to 100 or less.
As start times fill up, entries for some start times may be closed.  In the unlikely event all waves reach their entry limit we will close entries prior to late date.

If on event day you are in anyway a Covid risk (Refer to our Covid Safe plan) do not attend and contact MarchThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for a full refund.  In the event any of our events are cancelled for any reason our policy is to pay a full refund. Refer our Refund Policy. Teams who pay by Paypal will be able to receive their refund much quicker and with less volunteer effort.  Bpays cannot be refunded and requires us to arrange an EFT to your bank account. 

Pay with Credit or Debit card
This is the new norm for Rogaining.  You may now pay via Credit/Debit card or paypal while Bpay payment remains an option.   To pay via Credit/Debit card or Paypal, complete your entry, view your team, click View Invoice and scroll down to the Paypal option and click Submit Payment.  To pay by credit card without logging on to a Paypal account click "Pay with Debit or Credit Card.      Note: Paypal do the secure handling of your Credit/Debit card details.   

Check in at Event
Please do not arrive to check in more than 60 minutes before your selected start time. This ensures our groups of 100 do not interact with each other at the start.
Check in still requires all team members to be there. Only one team contact will approach the Check in desk while other team members stay 1.5m back. Once you have checked in and received your maps, intentions map and checkpoint descriptions return to your car for preparation or move directly to the briefing area ready for your start.
There will be reduced course planning time between Check in and Briefing. To allow course planning we will make the map available to download from Thursday 25-Mar. Ensure you have your correct email address in the Rogaine entry system otherwise you will not receive communication about where to access the online map. Please also verify your phone number as that is required should contact tracing be required.  Because we know many people do not have their correct phone number in their member record we will also ask each team member their phone number on the Indemnity form in case contact tracing is required.

We will be using Navlight scoring.  When wrist Tags are issued we’ll ask teams to assist their team mates to fit the tags to each other.

We will have new Silva Field Compasses available to purchase at the Rogaine shop.  It has been decided for Covid reasons to not hire compasses.

Briefing
All team members must attend briefing.  For your own protection move away from the briefing entry to maintain your Covid spacing. Our intention is all teams can maintain 1.5mtr spacing however this is probably a good time to be wearing your mask until teams disperse.
Briefing will provide a reminder of important rules.

Finish
For 6hr Rogaines we ask you to finish in the 30 minutes before your scheduled finish time to limit your finish group to the same people you started with. The few teams finishing earlier or later may be linked to more than one wave start group in the event of contacts needing to be traced.

For the 12hr Rogaine we ask you to avoid finishing or returning to the Hash House until after 7:30pm to maintain your distance from the 6hr Rogaine groups.

Punches at checkpoints will be solidly mounted to allow you to place the tag to a punch with no need to handle the punch.   The Briefing and Finish Punches will also be mounted in the same way.

At the finish and after punching the finish punch we’ll ask teams to cut the tag off each other using scissors from our sanitizing bath.   Place the tags in a plastic bag lined container and we’ll seal the bag for reading the punch.  Please move away from the finish area after handing in you tags.  

There will be no printouts issued or result read at the event.  

There will be no catering as we know it at the completion of the event.   We will have drinking water available and normal water drops (with foot operated pumps), At the time of opening entries  (5-Mar), due to the lack of volunteers to help run the event, there will not be any other catering provided. However, if more volunteers become available, we will provide hot water for tea, coffee, Milo and instant noodles packaged in their own cup (Just add Water).  You will be informed in the final instructions about the catering situation.

However we do need teams to leave the Hash House marque area within 30 minutes of your finishing time if you start in the 12 midday start as the next wave will begin to finish. (This is not how we want to run, however this is a Covid limitation when running waves only 60 minutes apart.)

No Hash House Catering
There will be no catering at the Hash House for this event.  There will be drinking water available at the Hash House and at water drops on course (No Fruit)  Make you own plans for food throughout the event and after the event.

Course:
The course is set for 6hr and 12hr Rogainers. There are 6 checkpoints within 1 km and 15 within 2 km of the HH to help those getting started. The checkpoints space out further out and the Hash House is centrally located. 12hr Rogainers could return for dinner or plan plenty of time to get the close in Checkpoints on their way home in the dark. Some of the watercourses have very thick scrub so traversing along them might be hard work. The southern parts of the course tend to have lighter scrub.

Orienteering Maxi that's like a Rogaine
Our friends at Orienteering Victoria & Nillumbik Emus Orienteering are running their Maxi this year on Anzac Day.  The Maxi is a Rogaine style event of 3hrs or 90 minutes for solo or teams and this year has a 6hr event for teams of two of more.  That does sound like a Rogaine and it’s set by Rogaining legend Derek Morris at Muckleford near historic Maldon.  Click for more information
