added by: MIclimber

The 3rd Annual Nain Rouge Gaine (At a new location this year!) is a 6 Hour Rogaine (Long Orienteering Event) in Southeast Michigan. Competitors will locate Orienteering Controls on foot, in an all optional format using supplied electronic punch sticks and Lidar based O-maps throughout Proud Lake Recreation Area in attempt to find the Nain Rouge and ward him off for another year.

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.

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. Teams / individuals can choose to trek on trails or bushwhack through the wilderness!
