Details of the event

Team Thought Sports are teaming up with A1 Series and Tiger Adventure to bring some of the best navigators in the world of Adventure Racing to Queensland for a weekend of skills training. Rob and Kathryn Preston have represented Australia many times in Orienteering, Rogaining and Adventure racing and have over 50 years of navigation practice between them.

Navigation is often the key determinant of an Adventure Racing teams performance but is often overlooked in training, or left on the shoulders of the soul 'navigator' on the team. But everyone can learn to improve and contribute with some expert, personalised training.

What topics will be covered?

  • Both Foot and Mountain bike navigation covered

  • Compare the differences between Orienteering maps and topographical maps

  • Discuss techniques useful for any level of navigator

  • How to use a compass

  • How to navigate without a compass, or at night.

  • Planning a route to to minimise mistakes.

  • Contour interpretation

  • How to share navigation across your team

Numbers are limited and we will keep the coach to participant level low so you recieve the best attention.

Single day only
