The Nain Rouge is a red dwarf that is said to have been haunting the area in and around Detroit for the last 300 years. He is most vulnerable around the Spring Equinox, register now and prepare to find the Nain Rouge!!

Detailed Orienteering topographical maps will be provided pre-marked with control points. The total trekking will be around 30K – depending on a your selected route and number of CP’s achieved. Not all control points will be required to finish as an officially ranked team/individual; however, the more control points a team/individual obtains in the shortest amount of time, the higher they will rank in the overall standings.
