Red Kiwis OC has advised that the rogaine planned for Waiouru this year will not take place. Land access difficulties are behind the decision.
The Palmerston North-based club still hopes to run an endurance event on the army land at Waiouru, and is now talking about a rogaine or a mountain marathon. A mountain marathon is a 2-day navigation event with a fixed order of visiting the controls, and a compulsory overnight destination and campout. MM's were popular in NZ during the 80's, with the last one being at Waiouru in Jan 1994.
