NMARC Sprint Praxis #1

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.

    Awesome race Jeff! Shredded up another pair of biking shoes during the bike portion with all the hike-a-bike CPs on the North side. So far on par on replacing MTB shoes every 2-3 years while adventure racing!

    Thanks for a fun morning Jeff! It took the girls and I about 70 minutes to get the hike CPs. We think 34 may be missing though.
