MERGEO NAV RACES hosts navigation events in some of Washington State’s most fun, rugged, and beautiful terrain. Checkpoints are marked on a topographic map and it is up to you and your team to find as many as you can using only map and compass within the time limit! Take it on as a relaxed day hike with an adventurous twist, or a challenging competitive venture to test your skills. Prepare yourself by signing up for our skill clinics or try a Cascade Orienteering Club event, which includes beginner instruction and courses for all skill levels.
MerGeo prides itself on its expertly created maps and thoughtfully designed courses by US Orienteering Champion, Eric Bone. Eric’s expertise ensures that the maps we provide are fair and that the courses are fun, interesting, and challenging for new orienteers and veterans alike.
