WMOC 2019 offers to every participant and /or supporter an opportunity to try out a very popular activity here in Latvia – rogaine. Rogaine that originated in the previous century in Australia is a team orienteering activity where the team visits as many controls as possible in the time interval given. Controls have different point values, so optimal strategy and route choice are important.
In the very middle of summer Vivoarefoot rogaine takes place in Jūrmala, the best-known resort of Latvia. Posh villas shaded by pine-trees interchange with patches of forest, sandy beach stretches along the seashore for kilometres. Last year event’s photos available here.
