2006 NZ Championship Awarded to OHV

Wairarapa, 18/19 Feb 06

The 2006 NZ Rogaining Champs will be run by rogaining pioneer Orienteering Hutt Valley. Championship status has been just been confirmed by the NZ Orienteering Federation, and the 24hr event will be run in the Wairarapa on 18/19 Feb.

Since running the first rogaine in NZ in 1991 OHV has run over 40 rogaines, and it has also scheduled two 6hr, 11 afterwork, and 2 training sessions in the eight-month leadup to next February. Planners for this explosion of mapsport activity have been drawn from participants in the successful afterwork rogaines engineered by NZOF Rogaine Committee member Mike Sheridan. Sheridan is also the chief organiser for the championship.

The event will be held in the foothills of the Tararua Ranges, backbone of the southern North Island.
