Wild Traverse is a self-supported, two-day navigation-based trekking race for teams of two (male, female and mixed categories), with an overnight stop. You can go as fast as you like and race to win, or take it easy with the goal to just finish the course and enjoy the adventure.
Corrected maps will be distributed one hour before the start of each stage. Routes are different for the each stage; some checkpoints are compulsory, others are optional. Electronic timing will be provided.
Teams must supply and carry their own race food and camping equipment for the entire event. However, a BBQ dinner and drinks will be provided at the mid-camp, and drinking water will be provided at designated checkpoints.
Stage one: Teams navigate their way from the start to mid-camp, visiting a number of checkpoints along the way. At mid-camp, teams will camp overnight before starting stage two. Approximate distance through all checkpoints for stage one is about 35 kilometres, 28 kilometers along the shortest route
Stage two: Teams will navigate their way from mid-camp to the finish (the same place as the start), again visiting a number of checkpoints. Approximate distance through all checkpoints for stage two is 32 kilometers, 27 km along the shortest route
