Information for Novices

Are you new to Rogaining?


Hello and welcome to the NSWRA Novices Webpages

In these pages we provide links to a wide range of information to help newcomers understand our sport, to help you improve your skills and to get you out there participating and enjoying yourself.

Rogaining is an amateur sport, and relies on volunteers. Much of the Information provided here comes from other Rogaining Associations and, rather than reinvent the wheel, we gratefully acknowledge the good work they have done in preparing documentation applicable to the wider Rogaining community.

Information is grouped on the following pages:

  1. What is Rogaining?
  2. Who can participate in Rogaining events?
  3. What skills do I need?
  4. What equipment do I need?
  5. How do I enter an event?
  6. I’ve entered an event, what happens next?
