MerGeo Nav Races is hosting a navigation race at the stunningly beautiful Moran State Park on Orcas Island, WA. It has been several years since Moran was used for such an event, and this will be an event that you won’t want to miss! Great terrain and a detailed map!
Are you new to nav racing? That’s okay! Check out the “First Time?” section to learn how it works. We’ll offer an Introduction to Navigation session before the start, as well as a practice event on the day before. The Intro session will include an introduction to the map, reading contours, basic navigation, and how to use the compass to orient the map. For other opportunities to try navigating, check this site for upcoming events, visit our friends at Forest Runs and Krank Events, or attend one of the numerous events put on by Cascade Orienteering Club year-round. Cascade offers Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced-level courses, plus free beginner instruction before you begin.
