Checkpoints of varying point values are marked on a topographic map; how many can you find before time runs out? Whoever collects the most points wins! Navigation racing is old school: no GPS gadgets, just a paper map, your wits, teamwork, and a ton of fun!
For this season opener, we’ll have a brand new set of checkpoints for you in the forested trails, suburban streets, and grassy promenades of the Lake Desire neighborhood, perched above the Cedar River Valley. Find as many checkpoints as you can in your pick of 2-hour or 4-hour events. Participate solo or in a team of 2-5 people.
Are you new to nav racing? That’s okay! Check out the “First Time?” section to learn how it works. Be sure to show up to the free Introduction to Navigation session at 9:00am on event morning! We’ll provide an introduction to the map, reading contours, basic navigation, and how to use the compass to orient the map.
