15th World Rogaining Championships 2017 - Latvia

Here is a brief look at the recently held and inovative 15th World Rogaining Championships Latvia.

The top ten places were dominated as is usual for WRC's by Open Mens teams, though not unusually two of the top ten teams were Open Mixed teams. Interestingly for a WRC there was only one veteran team in top ten on this occassion. The winners of all three Open events won by clear margins. Interestingly Latvian teams took the first three Open Men and therefor outright places.

2015 European Rogaining Championship

European Rogaining Championship was on June 27-28 2015 in Novohradske mountains in the Czech republic. 440 participants (195 teams) were present; another 91 rogainers (44 teams) took part in Open 6 & 12 hour Rogaining Events. We have hosted rogainers from 16 European countries accompanied by several Australians living in Germany as well.

The terrain was very challenging, sometimes, especially during the night; it was not easy to find some check points, although all markers were correctly placed. Also weather was not ideal, fine rain several times changed to cloudburst. Map printed on water-resistant material Pretex required some additional protection, but any complaint concerning of map durability hasn’t occurred.
