45.00 per person until the October 1st / 60.00 day of race
Navigation Clinic and Navigation Race held in Huntsville State Prak
Next NAV Texas - Saturday October 8th, 2016
What racers are saying about NAV TEXAS
2 Events each 4 hours to choose from
A Navigation Race consisting of land navigation while trekking and biking
A Navigation Clinic for beginner and intermediate racers wanting to learn navigation skills or brush up on their existing navigation skills - 2 hours of class and 2 hours of practice.
So if that is a little confusing it goes like this:
The RACE starts at 9:15 am. The race is exactly that a "practice" RACE. Running and biking through a beautiful TEXAS forest attempting to get as many CP's as you can in a set amount of time.
The clinic starts at 9:05 am. The race and clinic are 2 separate events - you can do one or the other. The clinic is a class with both map instruction AND actual in the woods navigation that we will help you with. Then you will be unleashed to tear through the forest on your own with a map, compass, and your newly learned navigation skills. NEVER BE LOST again.
