About 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.
When: 9am-5pm Saturday 4th August, 9am-1pm Sunday 5th August.
Where: Saturday- Daisy Hill, Stockyard Creek, Sunday- Wivenhoe Dam
If you are racing Hells Bells Adventure Race the following weekend then this is targeted for you. But there are many other races on the Queensland calendar such as the Max Adventure Sprint race, the Australasian Rogaining Championships, and the final A1 Series race Wildside down the coast of NSW.
