Learn Orienteering and Navigation

March 10 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM EST

Orienteering and Navigation are the toughest skills to master in adventure racing. In this course expert navigators will teach you the techniques top navigators use in every race. Each group is limited to 6 people. You will first learn the basics of how to use the map and compass and navigations strategies. You will proceed with your instructor on an orienteering course and finish by using what you learned by completing a navigation course. You will wrap up by a debrief where you can see what you did right (and wrong). You will become a better navigator!
