16th World Roganing Championship - La Molina, Catalunya, Spain

The 2019 World Rogaining Championships were held on 27-28 July 2019 in La Molina. The competition area was a beautiful area of the Pyrenees, featuring a mix of forest and high mountains. The course contained many hills and ranged from Alp village at 1300m to the highest peak, La Tossa, at 2536m. The weather also challenged participants with the start in a thunderstorm which fortunately cleared later in the event with sunshine for the finish. The organisers IbeRogaine put on a super event with a very high quality course, excellent map and fantastic start/finish area. Congratulations to overall World Rogaining Champions Rain Seepõld and Timmo Tammemäe from Estonia. All results, including the other World Rogaining Champions in their categories are on the website.
