Checkpoints can bring different number of points which depends on difficulty of finding it, so teams must develop a strategy (for example, to get to as many checkpoints as possible of lower significance.

Teams move by walking (or running), use maps and compass for orienteering on the terrain which vary from the open one to the flat and further to the terrain located in the hilly woods. Central spot, for which rogaine use the word “hash house” is a place where competitors can have a cooked meal and teams can return to it whenever they want to eat, rest or sleep.  

Teams move by their own speed according to their level of training so this sport is open to all ages, from children to the seniors.
