Whoopeee! Come frolic on The Port Hills for an evening! HOHOHO!!!

In teams of two or more people or as an individual, you must navigate around the hills and collect as many cryptic checkpoints as you can in three hours (further information about 'cryptic' checkpoints below). The event start is at Victoria Park carpark, off Victoria Park Road. Car parking is at the main carpark. Register from 5.30pm onwards, and at that time you will recieve your map. There will be a short briefing 5 minutes before the race start at 6.30pm. However, you must plan your course cunningly, because you must be back at the car park by 9.30pm. If you don't make it back on time you may miss out on Santa's goodies!

The "Christmas Twilight Rogaine" is a 3 hour rogaine on Wednesday Evening, 16 December. Check in times are from 5.30pm onwards at the Victoria Park Carpark. At 6.30pm there will be a mass start where everyone is sent off in search of the checkpoints. Sunset is at 9:07pm which means teams should be arriving back soon after dark, so be prepared with headtorches etc. After the finish, there will be a brief prize giving and some baking.
