About the event

Team Thought Sports are teaming up with A1 Series to bring some of the best navigators in the world of Adventure Racing to Victoria 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 7th September, 9am-2pm Sunday 8th September.

Where: Macedon/Woodend

All levels from first time navigators to experienced racers will be catered for. Bring your whole team and we can help you perform to your potential for your next race, whether that be a Sprint Distance event at Explore Gippsland, or expedition championships like ExpeditionAR. 

We will cater for all levels of experience
