Orienteering Race

July 21, 2021

A fun way to explore the Y during this skill-based race! 

Join us for a fun, family-friendly race on August 3, 2021 to various checkpoints with the aid of a map and compass! Orienteering is the sport of navigation, using a highly detailed map. Whether you’re an experienced hiker, competitive runner, or just a family or group out for an activity in a park, this sport helps you improve your navigation each time. The race course is a scenic 1.75 miles newly-developed orienteering route on the YMCA of the Rockies property. The winner is the one with the lowest elapsed time and will win a plethora of outdoor goodies including Kahtoola microspikes, a Peregrin summit pack, a YMCA hiking buff, and much more!
