Alexandra Scouts are organising a rogaine event at Lower Manorburn Dam as a fundraiser to support the Scouts heading to Blenheim for Jamboree in December.
This is a 3 hour family and beginners treasure hunt / orienteering / rogaine competition around the Lower Manorburn Reserve near Alexandra. Make a team, get the kids outside, have an adventure.
A Rogaine is a team navigation race. You get a map of the area and where the "control points" are located before the race. You have to plan a route to get you to as many of them as possible in 3 hours - but don't be late beacause each minute late costs you points.
Teams can be 2 to 5 people, and any level of fitness or experience is welcome. You can walk, jog, or run the course and there is a BBQ at the end.
