Rogaining involves teams of two to five members visit as many checkpoints as possible in the time allowed. Checkpoints are scored differently depending on the level of difficulty in reaching them; therefore teams choose a strategy (for example, to visit many low score checkpoints) and route selection becomes a vital component. 

Teams travel entirely on foot, at their own pace, navigating by map and compass between checkpoints in terrain that varies from open farmland to hilly forest. Team members stay within earshot of each other. The best thing about rogaining is the social aspect. Everyone starts at the same time, and generally finishes at the same time, it is just the amount of ground that has been covered by teams that differs.
