The World Rogaining Championships (WRC) are the sport’s premier event. The Championships are held every one to two years in some of the best rogaining terrain a country can offer and have the highest technical standards. The location rotates around the world providing everyone with an opportunity to rogaine in Europe, Australasia, and North America. The World Rogaining Championships are for everyone in the sport: for elite to recreational competitors wanting a quality event.

The 18th World Rogaining Championships was in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, United States of America on 29-30 July 2023. Management of the event was by the Bay Area Orienteering Club in conjunction with a number of organizations and orienteering clubs who are members of OUSA. The combination of high altitude, intricate pine forests and physically demanding terrain was a true challenge to the world’s best rogainers.
