    There are a lot of sources out there for basic navigation. If enough people are interested, we may have a nav clinic the weekend before the race. The navigation requires a compass and a UTM reader to help you plot coordinates. The maps we use are normally 1:24,000. is a website that has a lot of info. on navigation.

    If you have any more questions, please feel free to email me at
