The World Rogaining Championships are the championships of the International Rogaining Federation (IRF) and the pinnacle rogaining event in the world. The championships are organised by the national rogaining organisation chosen by the IRF as the host of that particular championships.

World championship rogaines are always of 24 hours duration, and are conducted in accordance with standard rogaining rules.

The team with the highest score in each of the three gender classes (Men's, Women's and Mixed teams) are declared the World Rogaining Champions. Within each gender class, all teams participate in the Open age category. Additionally, there are age sub-categories as follows: Junior (under 20), Veteran (over 40), Super Veteran (over 55) and Ultra Veteran (over 65).[1]

World Rogaining Championships were previously held every two years, but since 2012 they have been held annually.
