Join us for a fun, family-friendly race on August 3, 2021 to various checkpoints with the aid of a map and compass! Orienteering is the sport of navigation, using a highly detailed map. Whether you’re an experienced hiker, competitive runner, or just a family or group out for an activity in a park, this sport helps you improve your navigation each time. The race course is a scenic 1.75 miles newly-developed orienteering route on the YMCA of the Rockies property. The winner is the one with the lowest elapsed time and will win a plethora of outdoor goodies including Kahtoola microspikes, a Peregrin summit pack, a YMCA hiking buff, and much more! 

Sign up in groups of 1-4. Race starts at 8:30 am with staggered times. 

If you are interested and have no orienteering experience, sign up for one of our beginner classes which will be held in the Boone Family Mountain Center on August 1 & 2 at 9 am.

For more information about the orienteering classes and to register for the race, call 970-586-3341 ext. 1311 or visit the website.
