About the Event
Orienteering: n. A sport in which participants find their way to various waypoints in the woods with only the aid of a map and compass.
Join us for one or two sessions.
We will cover:
- How to use a compass
- Reading a map
- Using a compass to find waypoints
This will be a hands-on clinic so you will have the opportunity to practice what you have learned either by walking or biking to various waypoints. This course is inspired by Adventure Races that utilize Orienteering through running or mountain biking to get to various waypoints.
What to bring: Comfortable shoes, sun protection, water, mountain bike (if you are interested in bringing your own Mountain Bike you may use this to ride to separate waypoints for a deeper adventure).
