What is Rogaining?
Rogaining is the sport of long distance cross country navigation. Teamwork, endurance, strategy and map reading are features of the sport. Rogaining is a team activity for people of all ages and levels of fitness, which aims to support and encourage people to develop respect for and enjoyment of rural and bushland environments, and to encourage the development of navigational skills, self reliance, general fitness, and the ability to work in a team.
About the NTRA
Rogaining found its way to the NT in 1999 (about a quarter of a century after the sport's invention in Victoria), courtesy of the energetic Andy Black and David Palmer who organised the first NT rogaine, the Croc and Rock, at Litchfield National Park in August of that year.
With their rogaining experience from southern states, Andy and David spent much of early 1999 battling Wet season humidity, flooded creeks, thick high grass and the almost totally unroaded bush of Litchfield National Park to set the course for what turned out to be an historic (and for many competitors very tough) 24 hour event.
