ROGAINE actually means Rugged Outdoor Group Activity Involving Navigation and Endurance. A "Rogaine" is an "orienteering treasure hunt". There is no set course to follow. Controls are scattered throughout the mapped area and participants have a fixed time interval (90 or 180 minutes) to find as many controls as possible in whatever order they choose before returning to the start/finish area. Points are awarded for each control based on difficulty and/or distance from the start area (or a the whim of the course designer). Penalty points are deducted for participants who return to the start area after their time limit expires. Participants do not need to visit every control. Two courses available: Easier and Harder. Pre-registration guarantees you a map and saves you money! For more information, and to pre-register, click on the Tickets link.

Welcome to Orienteering New Brunswick!


What is Orienteering?

Orienteering is a lifelong, family oriented competitive sport in which participants find their way to various checkpoints across diverse and unfamiliar terrain with the aid of a map and compass, the winner being the one with the shortest elapsed time.

Who can do it?

Everyone is welcome! All ONB events include courses to suit participants of different skill and fitness levels from beginner to advanced. Younger children should be accompanied on their course by an adult.

How do I start?

Come to an event! An organizer will be more than happy to give you some pointers before your first attempt. Find out about our next events by checking out our calendar.
