Resources for organising a Rogaine 

The book, "Organising a Rogaine" by Rod Costigan,  is a fantastic reference for organisers and NSWRA owns several copies. You can arrange to borrow a copy through the Secretary on the Committee, or there's also information on purchasing a copy on the Books page. This website contains more specific advice relevant to organising a rogaine in NSW. Good luck!

There are four key roles involved in organising a Rogaine:

  1. Event Coordinator
  2. Administrator
  3. Course Setter(s)
  4. Caterer(s)

Event Coordinator Role

Administrator Role

  • To accept and process event entries.
  • To record and bank entry fees received.
  • To provide information to competitors before, during and after the event.
  • To register teams, distribute maps etc at the registration desk on the day of the event.
  • To record arrivals and departures, calculate scores and allocate placings.
  • To compile a result list.
  • Please see the Administrator page for more information.

Course Setter Role

Caterer Role

  • To prepare a menu and divide up amongst the members of your team the task of purchasing the materials and bringing them to the event.
  • To supervise the cooking and presentation of the food and drinks at the event.
  • To keep track of all costs, submit a claim to the treasurer and see that your team is reimbursed.

These roles do not necessarily need to be undertaken by four separate people. Ideally a Rogaine should be organised by a team of people working together. This checklist provides a guide to the key tasks that need to be completed and who may undertake each task.
