Corsair Bay Rogaine, Dog and kayak friendly! September 15th!

rogaine with dogs

Welcome to the Canterbury Rogaine Series - Dog Friendly!

Hosted by Canterbury Rogaine Series!

Coming up - Corsair Bay Foot/Kayak Rogaine - Saturday, 15 September 2018

Kayak and foot rogaines - Do one or do both! 

Anybody that has a moderate level of fitness can participate. A high level of navigation ability is not required. Teams travel at their own pace and anyone from children to grandparents can experience the personal satisfaction that comes from cross-country navigation at their own level of competition and comfort. Team members stay within earshot of each other.

The best thing about rogaining is the social aspect. Everyone starts at the same time, and generally finishes at the same time, it is just the amount of ground that has been covered by teams that differs. Rogaining can be held in city environments or in farmland and bush, and you get to visit parts of the country you never knew existed.

Kids and families (and dogs on a leash) are welcome to come and have a fun time.

Don’t miss it, bring your friends!
