SPRING CHALLENGE NAVIGATION CLINICS

Tune your adventure racing and navigation skills for the Spring Challenge by coming to a hands-on workshop taken by adventure racing navigator Nora Audrá (from all girl adventure racing team Atenah Brazil and 3 X Winner of the 12hr Spring Challenge).

A 3hr clinic designed to teach beginners how to navigate and compete successfully in the Spring Challenge. This will include map preparation and map reading, route choice, using the compass, team work and other adventure race specific skills.

The main focus of the clinic is on helping you to get well prepared for the race. There will be courses specially designed so teams can experience a little of what they will face at the Spring Challenge.

It will be followed by a 2hr Rogaine event. More experienced teams can practice their skills by doing just the rogaine.

I wanted to thank you again for a fantastic day on the Navigation clinic. I loved all the stories you shared that made it funny but also really useful. Practicing scenarios and really making us think and read the maps was a really valuable exercise too. I felt like I learnt heaps and am definitely more prepared for the navigation side of the spring challenge. It was a fun and really informative day a must for first timers! Thanks again! H.T. Nelson

Thank you so much for a great day! Navigation doesn’t seem like such a scary monster now! Cannot wait for Spring Challenge! Once again, thank you! A.H. Christchurch
