The NavQuest is a 3hr (foot) rogaine challenge organised by Hillary Outdoors and open to all. Teams of 2-4 members have 180mins to navigate to as many checkpoints as possible and make it back to the finish before clock gets to zero. The navigation level is suitable for all levels, you don't need to be an expert, as the emphasis is on strategy, planning and time-keeping.
Registration will open at 8.30am on the day and there will be a briefing at 9.30am. Maps will then be issued and you will have about 20 minutes to plan where you are going to go. You will then have 3 hours (from 10.00am to 1.00pm) to find as many checkpoints as possible.
There are some great spot prizes (all participants go into the draw) up for grabs, courtesy of our great sponsors - Bivouac Outdoor, KEEN Footwear, Lactic Turkey Events, Total Sport Events.
