Looking for a new challenge? Love being outdoors in nature? Love hiking or trail running? Have a sense of direction? Or maybe no sense of direction but definitely a sense of adventure? Either way, a TrailNav Challenge is just the thing for you.

A what?  A TrailNav Challenge event (some call this a rogaine) is a solo or teams navigation challenge.  You can compete in a 3 hour or 90 minute challenge. This is the perfect mix of team work, personal challenge, strategy and enjoying the outdoors!

We give you a map and the challenge involves navigating around the area (don’t worry, it’s all pretty straightforward navigation – if you can read a street map or zoo/museum map😊 you can do this!) and finding checkpoints (worth a varying amount of points) identified on a map to gain the most points. Some are easy (you get there, you get points, end of story), others have awesome mystery activities that give you extra points.

The beauty of it is that you choose how you want to go about it. You can choose to go fast for easy points or do it a bit slower collecting the closer checkpoints with added mysteries to get more points. The distance you cover will depend on how you plan your route (you get planning time before you start) but, fast or slow, Far or not so far, fun is guaranteed!
