6 Hour Rogaine (Long Orienteering Event). Competitors will locate Orienteering Controls, in an all optional format using supplied electronic punch sticks, throughout the Rec Area in attempt to find the Nain Rouge and ward him off. The Nain Rouge is a red dwarf that is said to have been haunting the area in and around Detroit for the last 300 years!
Detailed Orienteering topographical maps will be provided pre-marked with control points, as well as a DNR Recreation Area map. The total trekking will be around 30K – depending on a your selected route and number of CP’s achieved. Not all control points will be required to finish as an officially ranked team/individual; however, the more control points a team/individual obtains, the higher they will rank in the overall standings. Teams / individuals can choose to trek on trails or bushwhack through the wilderness!
