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!



The Sunday and Monday rogaines are also suitable for mountainbikers, and the Akatarawa Attack has generously stood aside for 2012 to mark the anniversary!

 

Schedule:

Base at Muritai School, Eastbourne with camping. Village atmosphere with shops and cafes, we encourage locals to camp as well. Do one, do some or do them all - overall results for teams with the same composition. The 21hr multi-stage rogaine is a first as far as we know! As tough as a 24hr rogaine - but without the sleep deprivation. And many more opportunities to socialise with other rogainers.

The best rogaining maps in NZ. Developed from the LINZ topo, but the track network has been hugely improved over 20 years of rogaining, and LIDAR-derived 10m contours replace the old topo 20's. Celebrate the coming of age of rogaining in NZ.

More detail, entry forms November. Normal entries close 25  Jan, after that subject to map printing of course.
