The International Rogaining Federation has released the Entry Preface and Criteria for World Rogaining Championships 2014 South Dakota.


Advice to Entrants for 2014 World Rogaining Championships

The International Rogaining Federation (IRF) has a set entry criteria for 2014 World Rogaining Championships which is linked here, 12WRC2014 Entry Criteria.

The 2014 World Rogaining Championships (2014WRC) has a limit of 1,000 entrants. It is not expected that this limit will be exceeded during the two-week Phase One entry period and thus the IRF has not compiled a list of Prequalified Entrants (PQEs) for 2014WRC.

However, in case of the unlikely situation that this limit of 1,000 entrants is exceeded during the Phase One entry period the IRF requests all PQEs entering the event during Phase One to nominate their PQE status in the place provided on the entry page. PQEs will also be asked to nominate the basis of their PQE status (ie what event or position earned them that status). If you have PQE status from more than one event or position you should nominate only one event or position.

PQE status is achieved by any of the following:

1.Teams that include at least one past WRC open category champion (MO, WO, and XO) in their team

2.Teams that include at least one person from a team filling the places listed below in any of the 12 age/gender categories (MJ, WJ, XJ, MO, WO, XO, MV, WV, XV, MSV, WSV and XSV):

a. The first 10 places in 2012WRC or 2013WRC

b. The first 5 places in the 2012 or 2013 European Rogaining Championships

c. The first 3 places in the 2012 or 2013 Australasian Rogaining Championships

d. The first 3 places in the 2011 or 2012 North American Rogaining Championships

3.Teams that include at least one person from a team that filled one of the top 2 places in an open category (MO, WO and XO) in the following events:

a. 2012 and 2013 Russian Rogaining Championships

b. 2012 and 2013 Czech Rogaining Championships

c. 2011 and 2012 New Zealand Rogaining Championships

d. 2012 and 2013 Finnish Rogaining Championships

e. 2012 and 2013 Ukrainian Rogaining Championships

f. 2012 and 2013 Latvian Rogaining Championships

g. 2011 and 2013 United States Rogaining Championships

4.Teams that are eligible for the Ultra Veterans (65 years & over) category (MUV, WUV & XUV)

5.Teams that include at least one person who is an IRF Councillor or Observer

Please note that all non-PQE teams that nominate during the two-week Phase One entry period must have at least one member who has participated in a 24-Hour rogaine during the two years prior to the opening of entries. Non-PQE teams will be required to list the relevant team member and event. Only one event is required to be listed.

Teams nominating during Phase One that do not advise either their PQE status OR the 24-Hour rogaine from the prior two years that makes them eligible for Phase One entry will automatically be deemed Phase Two entrants.

All entrants will also be requested to nominate the country of which they are a permanent resident.


Age is as first day of competition.

Mixed class team contains at least one female and one male.
