RACO FLASH MOB MALIBONGWE !

Like a flash mob - the hardcore members of RACO, up before dawn - we are ready to serve the 5000 or so RAC Tough One runners....then as quick as we assembled, its all over by 7:30 !

The Club thanks those stalwart members who come out each year to the 6km water table, doing our 'community service' at the 32km road race. Many thanks also go to Denise and Val - purveyors of 'Cafe De Move On' for the superb roadside breakfast !
 

 

 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
 
 
 

WHAT IS ORIENTEERING ?

Orienteering is an outdoor adventure activity, which involves finding your way through unfamiliar terrain using a specially prepared map and your own common sense.  It can be compared to a treasure hunt.  In Orienteering, you learn to read the map, measure distances, use a compass and find your way in cross-country surroundings and at the same time have fun.

 

Participants leave the starting point at regular intervals and must find their way to several checkpoints, set-out at various features in the area and return to the finish, after visiting each checkpoint.  The competitor with the shortest elapsed time on each course, is declared the winner.

 
 

The activity can be enjoyed by adults and children - old and young - fit or unfit.  As you set your own pace walking or running - it is ideal recreation for individuals or groups.  Families are welcome to try Orienteering, going round the course together.

 

The length of an Orienteering course varies from 1,5 km with six to ten controls for beginners, up to about 10 km for the more adventurous.  The challenge is yours !.
