Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Sunday 28th February 2021
The checkpoints are free-choice in the 3 hours and have different point values so strategy and route selection becomes a vital component. A form of orienteering, it combines tramping, navigation, competition, and strategy. The event caters for all levels of fitness and enthusiasm - but keep in mind this event is in the mountains, using only a map and compass, it’s a bit like a tramping treasure-hunt.
