About the event

Team Thought Sports are teaming up with A1 Series, Tiger Adventure and Elemental Adventures to bring some of the best navigators in the world of Adventure Racing to NSW 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 25th May, 9am-1pm Sunday 26th May.

Where: Saturday-West Wallsend, Sunday- Minmi

This training is just two weeks prior to Geoquest so its a perfect opportunity to improve your skills. But there are many other races on the calendar if you are not racing Geoquest such as Hells Bells in August and Wildside in October.  

We will cater for all levels of experience

  • Both Foot and Mountain bike navigation covered
  • Compare the differences between Orienteering maps and topographical maps
  • Discuss techniques useful for any level of navigator
  • How to use a compass
  • How to navigate without a compass, or at night. 
  • Planning a route to to minimise mistakes.
  • Contour interpretation
  • How to share navigation across your team 
  • Numbers are limited and we will keep the coach to participant level low so you get the best attention

Preference will be given to participants who can attend both days, but please contact Rob on 0403296516 (rob AT if you would like to attend one day only.
