This is a team challenge. The spirit of the event is that each team starts, and each team finishes … together. There may be situations along the course where team members are required to split up for a short time. The team will need to decide in these instances which member goes where.

Prior to the start of the Challenge, route maps will be distributed for each team. Participants will need to measure distance, read topographic map contour lines, know all the symbols on the map, orient the map to the terrain, and know how to carry and protect the map so they can readily read it.

We will have the maps prepared for the teams with all check points and transition areas marked. Maps are provided each evening for the following day’s stage.
