The training is designed for a range of abilities. Beginners are welcome.
Bring a compass if you have one, otherwise there are normal spares available to borrow. The maps are provided and printed on waterproof paper. For the trainings that are score events (mini rogaines) you may wish to bring a pen or highlighter to plan your route.
The 6pm trainings are put on free of charge, although donations are appreciated to help cover costs and show your thanks.
Training will go ahead regardless of any adverse weather conditions, so if you are keen see you there!
