Paddy Pallin 6 hour rogaine

For the Paddy Pallin 6 hour rogaine held in June each year, there is an additional age based category of “Junior”  in which all team members must be under 18 years of age on the first day of competition.  There are no gender categories within the junior age class.

Family Category

NSWRA also usually offers a “Family” category at events. The team members must include at least two members of the same family, who represent two generations. One must be a child under 18 years of age on the first day of competition.

Novice Category

Some events offer a Novice category where all team members must never have previously entered a rogaine.

Teams are deemed to compete in every category for which they are eligible.
