This is a 4 hour praxis that will including mountain biking, trekking, and orienteering in a rogaine format. You will have the freedom to choose your route and checkpoints. There will be far more CP's than anyone can possibly acquire in the time allowed so don't expect to clear the course. Each CP will have a point value based on its distance and difficulty. Your objective is to accumulate as many points as possible within the four hour period. This format rewards strategy and route selection over speed and endurance so be sure to spend a little time on developing your strategy once you have all the points plotted.
Soloist are welcome but you are encouraged to participate as a team. Only members that have paid their annual dues are allowed to participate.
