From 2014-2016 athletes in our Adventure Running X and ARK Attack programs participated at NATIONALS in Whistler, the Maritimes and the Rockies and also took trips to navigation competitions in Vancouver, Boston, Cincinnati, Westpoint (New York State), Ottawa and Hartford (New Hampshire).
Our Team of athletes not only had a great time and built incredible team spirit but they also took home a bucket of medals. They also gained valuable racing experience, got to experience another side of the country, climbed mountains, paddled lakes and oceans and met Adventure Runners from other provinces.
TRAVEL SQUAD 2017
In 2017, members of the Dontgetlost Travel Squad will have the opportunity to travel to the following navigation races and training camps. Participants can choose to attend as many or as few events as they like. We try and keep the costs of the trips as low as possible. The weekend trips are usually around $175 including all gas, hotel, food and entry fees. Our big trip to Nationals will be more but the ARX travel fund will cover all entry fees. Participants will be driven and chaperoned by DGL program managers (or some parents who may choose to attend the races).
We will also be running weekend training once a month leading up to Nationals to prepare the athletes for races and what to expect.
THESE RACES ARE APPROPRIATE FOR EVERYONE FROM THOSE WHO WANT TO RACE AT A NATIONAL LEVEL TO THOSE WHO WANT TO VISIT NEW PLACES AS A RECREATIONAL PARTICIPANT.
