Location

Course
The course has just over 100 question and multiple choice answer checkpoints.   With 100 Checkpoints across Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads Rogainers will find few checkpoints with travelling distance of over 1 km.    The questions are intended to confirm your visit to the checkpoint and not test your IQ.  Our setter is looking for checkpoints at points of interest.    Mountain bikes or Hybrid/Adventure bikes are most suitable for this event

Map
Based on the Melway and reproduced (with their permission) at 1:22,000 which is a little larger then standard book scale.  The Map size will be A3 with an A4 size scoresheet and double sided A4 question and Multiple choice answer sheet.     All the street names are included but there are no contour lines and no significant hills. 

Scoring
Check point visits are confirmed by answering a question that needs you to visit the location to find the answer.    Select the correct answer from the 4 listed.  No guessing as multiple wrong answers will score a negative score making it not worth a guess.     Record A, B  C or D on your score sheet so you will need a black pen.    Black is most accurate when scanned for scoring.

Trial Maprun
Maprun has be set for this event (both Foot and Cycling) and is available to anyone who would like to give it a go.  However Maprun scores will be unofficial.   If you'd like to give the Maprun GPS app a try click Maprun Instructions to link to our instructions.  You need to download and install the App prior to the event please.
