This event has passed.

The Nakkertok Fun Run is the zaniest forest adventure of the season! Multi-age teams use map-reading skills to navigate the trails of Nakkertok in search of orienteering flags. Along the way teams are presented with fun challenges like balancing on a slack line, mental challenges and team work challenges.

Teams can choose to complete the 30-minute course, 1-hour course or 2-hour course. Points are awarded for each flag found, but deducted for getting back past the time limit! Participants make their own teams of 4. Smaller teams are permitted but all teams must complete the same number of obstacles.

There is a special course for Mud Monsters and other young athletes with more densely placed flags and age appropriate challenges.
