Waitangi21 - What Is It?

On 3 Feb 1991 New Zealand's first rogaine ran in Belmont Regional Park, Lower Hutt.

On 4-6 Feb 2012 Orienteering Hutt Valley re-creates that rogaine, as part of a unique 21-hour rogaine spread over Waitangi Weekend, and around Wellington. Urban - bush - farmland - all within a stone's throw of the coolest little capital in the world!

What's New about Waitangi21

14 Feb 12: The routes on the web can be much more realistic if you put in the main wiggles. To see what I mean, look at Team "Dated Loaf and Pikelet" for Stages 4 and 5. Just let us know (via "Contact" above) and we'll clear out the simplified route and help you if necessary. GPS files can also go in if you had one tracking your route.

Rogaining in NZ

A rogaine is a navigational contest.

Control points are marked on a map and teams of 2-5 people visit as many as they can within a fixed time. The classic rogaine is held in rural terrain over 24 hours. All teams start together, choose from the same controls, and finish together. Some teams are competitive; others enjoy the challenge and the scenery. New Zealand is good at competitive rogaining, with kiwi world champions and NZ hosting the world champs.
