Volunteer Roles

This event is run entirely by volunteers, and entries will not open until the organiser is satisfied that we have enough helpers. As a general rule, if you’ve done more than five events without giving up the chance to compete and volunteering, it’s time to put up your hand. Or perhaps you have some family members who can help out, while you compete? This table shows the roles we need help with and the kind volunteers who have already put up their hands. If you can help out, or have family members who can, please email You could earn a Volunteer Reward, and some roles will still allow you to compete in the event.

The Qld Rogaine Association invites you to our annual 8hr Rogaine event.

Our 8 hour event is very popular with beginner rogainers, and is suitable for people of all ages and abilities. Celebrate the start of winter with an energetic day out with friends or family while sharpening up your navigation and route planning skills.

Teams of 2-5 people navigate on foot between checkpoints within an 8 hour period with the aim to score as many points as possible in the allocated time. Organise your team and come along for a day of fun.

We have developed a plan for managing Covid-19 risk, and we ask all participants to please abide by all relevant guidelines and event-specific instructions. The plan is available here, with key points summarised here. Due to the health risks, we ask all participants to bring their own water to the event and food/drinks will not be provided.
