2015 European Rogaining Championship

European Rogaining Championship was on June 27-28 2015 in Novohradske mountains in the Czech republic. 440 participants (195 teams) were present; another 91 rogainers (44 teams) took part in Open 6 & 12 hour Rogaining Events. We have hosted rogainers from 16 European countries accompanied by several Australians living in Germany as well.

The terrain was very challenging, sometimes, especially during the night; it was not easy to find some check points, although all markers were correctly placed. Also weather was not ideal, fine rain several times changed to cloudburst. Map printed on water-resistant material Pretex required some additional protection, but any complaint concerning of map durability hasn’t occurred.
