Race Rules

Crazy Kea Autumn Rogaine

The Course

The course map will be released to competitors at registration on the day of the event. Competitors abide by any out-of-bounds or compulsory routes on the map during the event and must race within the spirit of the competition.


The clock starts when you/your team punch the start at the beginning of the race. Your team will be given a clip card at registration, you will use this to record your visit to each checkpoint. Your start and finish time will be recorded at the event centre by our marshals and used to calculate your course time and any penalties if required.

Placings and Awards

Placing is based on the number of points collected. The person/team that collects the most points (minus any late penalty) will win. Teams with the same number of points will be ranked according to their finish time.


Each competitor enters under their own responsibility. They can judge whether they should participate in the event, start, and continue to the finish line. However the organisers reserve the right to stop a competitor or team from setting off or continuing  in the event should it be deemed necessary.


Spectators may view the race from any publically accessible location (including the event centre) and they are responsible for their own safety when doing so. Spectators may not go onto private land upon which the event is taking place without explicit permission from the race organisers. Special care should be taken when viewing from areas with possible hazards such as farm equipment, stock, water bodies, and cliffs. Young children should be supervised at all times.


Teams must carry all compulsory equipment as per the gear list. Failure to do so will result in a penalty. There may be spot checks carried out by marshals on the course and before the event start.


Any protest must be filed with the race organiser within one hour of finishing the race. This will then be reviewed by the race organisers to determine the outcome.


In the case of withdrawal of a team member or the entire team during the race, the team captain must inform the organisers by any means available in the shortest possible time. Failure to do so may result in a search and rescue operation. If a team member has to pull out the rest of the team may continue.


These will occur for any breach of rule or regulation and littering.


Unfair behaviour or behaviour that brings the race into disrepute, use of unauthorised equipment and abandonment of team members during the race. 


All participants compete at their own risk and the organisers will not accept liability for any personal accident or injury during the event. A liability waiver form must be signed by each team upon entering. Competitors should ensure that they are adequately insured.

Consideration for the land

To enable us to run this event we have sought permission from private landowners. It is important that we treat the land that we pass through with respect. To this end it is a requirement that all teams carry out their own rubbish. Any team seen to be littering will receive a penalty.

All gates must be left as they are found. If you choose to climb over a gate please do so at the hinge end.


Team members must respect instructions given by officials and must also follow their decisions regarding health, security and safety.
