Guides: Evan Wing, Jeff Everson and Mike Zolinski of Medicus WRX Adventure Racing.

RSVPs appreciated to Colleen: firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-767-2394.
Come for the basics of orienteering! You will learn to navigate various terrains using a compass and topographic map – an important skill to have. Guides will teach the group how to match what they are seeing in the landscape (land, water and man-made features) with the details displayed on a USGS topographic map. Expect up to two miles of light walking, 90% on paths or mowed grass. We will also have youth-focused compass activities that are all at the park’s soccer field.
This is an overview to the sport of orienteering, not a competitive event. But, practice what you learn here and you could compete in orienteering adventure races in the future!
Medicus WRX is a not for profit group of amateur adventure racers who have been racing together for 8 years. The team has more than ten top 5 finishes and qualified this year to race in the USARA Adventure Race National Championship in Maryland. Continued success and an ever-increasing knowledge base has inspired the team to give back to the adventure racing community by promoting the sport and hosting races in the Wisconsin area.
Remember to dress for the weather and mosquitoes.
