COVID 19: Due to the current health restrictions, we are still waiting to obtain the permit from the park to hold this event.This event might be cancelled due to health restriction or if the permit cannot be issued on time.



The 1st Manitoba Rogaine will take place on Saturday, July 10th. The start is at the Hog’s Back parking lot in Spruce Woods Provincial Park (See map below).

Rogaining is the sport of long-distance cross-country navigation. The only tools at your disposal will be maps and a compass (and your feet). A SI stick (for timing) will be lent to each team, and beginner compasses will be available if needed.

You can register to this event using this website. Additionally, the team leader has to send an email to:

rogaine at orienteering.mb.ca to confirm the registration, list the team members and give the name of the team.

Each participant needs to fill a MOA membership form (online), but the cost of the membership is included in the event registration price. A declaration of health has to be filled and sent to the organizer before the event or on paper the day of the event.

For the forms, see: http://www.orienteering.mb.ca/membership.html


Payment instruction for this event will be given in the second half of June.

The registration deadline is June 30th. There is a limit of 50 participants (all events combined).

There will be three categories for this event (see on the right of the page): 6-hour, 3-hour and 1-hour courses. The 6-hour long rogaine will be starting at 9 am. The 3-hour course will be starting at 10 am, and participants in the 1-hour course can start at any time between 10 am and 1 pm.


The goal will be to find as much controls as you can within your time limit, the total number of controls is 30. You should expect to run or walk at least 30 km to get all of them. Each control will earn you 10, 20 or 30 points. Point penalty will be applied for over-time participants. The penalty will increase rapidly with time. Team members have to stay together from start to finish.
