SOUTH GEORGIAN BAY
Adventure Running in the Collingwood/Blue Mountains region
DONTGETLOST IS COMING NORTH!
We're excited to announce a new program for adults and kids who enjoy playing outside in the South Georgian Bay area! Dontgetlost has hosted events in the Blue Mountains and Collingwood areas for years and now we'll be planning a regular schedule of local events. We can't wait to introduce navigation sports to community members of all ages in Collingwood, Blue Mountains, Wasaga Beach and around the South Georgian Bay area.
We plan to start small in 2023 with a few local events, training sessions and introductory clinics on map and compass use. Our aim is to challenge experienced adventure athletes and offer fun adventures for novices and hikers, including children. We also plan to hold mountain bike, ski and snowshoe navigation events.
We're all volunteers and we'll be looking for more volunteers to help out in different ways, whether it's hanging flags in the woods, picking up refreshments at the store, helping us check in racers, taking photos at a race or writing an article for the local newspaper. In most cases, you can volunteer and participate in the event too. Please contact us at SouthGBay.email@example.com if you might be interested in helping out from time to time.
