Every August, athletes are tested with a 2. We also need to figure out what to use to dry our feet with? You have to be able to plot, to navigate, to read a map and compass.

Follow along with full race maps here. The maps were great, the logistics were great, the volunteers were great.
You will be forced to use your intellect and you will be forced to rely on your team mates.
