My club, Adventure Racing Club, has three weekly Summer Series events coming up; the first on Wednesday 28 January 2015.
I organise these events with friend and club-mate Garry.
These are really fun one-hour events that take in the beauty of Delta Park, a wonderful open parkland expanse in the middle of Johannesburg.
Although we often vary the format of each of the weekly events, the general idea is that you get a map at the start and on the map a bunch of checkpoints are marked. You either have to locate all of them or a defined number of checkpoints (in any order) within the one-hour time.
What this means is that people run like crazy chickens all over the part, each person choosing their own route and which checkpoints they want to visit in any order. Navigation is pretty easy so no special skills are needed.
This is a family-friendly event and I look forward to seeing more children (they get free entry!) and newcomer adults at the events.
