Information on training possibilities in Latvia from March 2017 until August 2017.
A typical rogaining for a competitive team can mean more than 100 kilometers depending on the course, and keeping sharp mental focus for entire 24 hours. World-class teams can top 120 – 140 kilometers in a competition. This type of extreme event is rarely something we encounter on a normal day hike, so you have to admit that some training will definitely be beneficial. Trainings are also good for map and compass practice.

In addition, almost every weekday orienteering competitions are organized either in Riga neighborhood (www.magnets.lv) and all across Latvia (http://lof.lv/foot-calendar). More information on dates and locations you will be able to find here as they are updated http://lof.lv/foot-calendar
