A six hour Rogaine consisting of 3 unique Loops.
To keep this race fresh, 2018 will be a mashup of orienteering formats. We think the cool kids call it a Regaine? Or is it a clover leaf? Maybe a QuadTrek, but with three Legs, making it a TriTrek? Who knows, but it’ll be fun.
Here’s how it will work. We’ll have 3 total Loops/Maps for this race, each with unique checkpoints pre-plotted on each map. We’ll give you Map 1 at the Start (1PM) and you take off. In order for you to receive Map 2 you must return to base camp (eXplore Brown County), and turn in Map 1. Same for receiving Map 3. You can spend as much time as you’d like on each Loop, but you must return to base camp by 7PM, and you must return to base camp between each Loop. Once you’re done with a Loop, you won’t be able to revisit it.
In order to strategize appropriately, we can tell you that each map will have 10 checkpoints, all worth 1 point each. We’ll also give you the rundown during the prerace on what to expect for each Loop.
Teams/solos will first be ranked by the number of TOTAL CPs punched then by time. Since there’s 3 Loops, you can see there is an element of strategy in this format.
There is no time limit for each Loop, but there is a cutoff of 6 hours (7PM). Any team/solo arriving late will receive a 1 point penalty plus 1 point per each additional 5 minutes past 6 hours they arrive at the finish. For example: at 6 hours, 5 minutes the penalty is -2 points, at 6 hours, 10 minutes it’s -3 points.
Base Camp: The heated Harvest Hall at eXplore Brown County will serve as HQ. Nothing says winter like hot-coco…and Top Ramen®, and PB&J, so we’ll have that waiting on you between each Loop and at the Post Race to warm up
