DGL NEXT is a program for those 18+ that would like to improve their navigation and have fun in the woods.
The training takes place in a different location between Oakville and Hamilton each week.
FALL 2019 SEASON
For Fall 2019, we are making some changes to the NEXT program.
DGL NEXT is now aimed at beginner navigators and involves four, 30 minute clinics before the first 4 X-League races of the season, from 6:20-6:50pm. Participant then get to test what they just learned in the lesson during the low key race.
Registration includes all 4 lessons, entry into all X-League races for the Fall season and entry in the Peak-2-Peak Adventure Run (Oct 20) and Icebreaker Adventure Run (Dec 1)
Each night join us after each X-League race at a nearby establishment for food and drinks and discuss what went wrong, what went right and what to work on for next week!
