Race The Rockies AR, why not!

Diversion to jump into the local urban adventure race
put on by - photo Mike Melnick

Track running buddies from the late 80's -
Rhonda Bell & Marg Fedyna - TEAM Running in Circles!

6 hours to find as many controls as possible
Last minute peruse of the map before the Start.
Did well on the bike navigation

Dug my old mapbag from solo adventure race days... 
(neck-string, duct-taped Ziploc bag, space pen attached,
waterproof paper on-top for easy writing of checkpoints)
 - simple, though still an awesome system!

Our orienteering needed work - super easy control FOUND
A little bushwacking was to be had on other controls!

Rhonda - up high on the orienteer!

Come try one of these urban races sometime... Edmonton, Calgary, Golden (a little more rugged)

Lots of fun, as fast-paced as you make it, as relaxed as you want it!
