Competitors will experience a day of exploration and discovery on carefully selected pavement, gravel, dirt and mud roads with the odd 'goat trail' thrown in for good luck. While the event is geared towards novice teams, due to the nature of the roads (gravel, dirt and mud) some driving proficiency is required.
The rally will start in Calgary, break for gas/food and then finish in or close to Calgary. Trophies will be awarded for overall finishing position and class wins (Paper/Calculator/Unlimited/Historic and Novice).
Teams wishing to brush up on their navigational (and mathematical) skills or for anyone unfamiliar with the concept of Time Speed Distance navigation, there is a novice course at the clubhouse before the event. This is not a mandatory course for new competitors but it is highly recommended. Please RSVP the organiser if you wish to attend.
The rally runs on straight-forward instructions. In addition to the route instructions, maps will be provided for recovery purposes. The rally will be about approx 400km long, entirely within the province of Alberta. An odometer check section of almost 20km will be provided. Roads will be about 30% clear pavement, 70% gravel or mud and all instructions will be provided in KM units.
