Navigation Events Around the US/Can
This page contains a simple list of longer (6+ hrs) US/Canada rogaines. I limit the list to longer events that you might be willing to drive a fair distance to attend. Shorter orienteering meets are great events, but you would rarely if ever, drive a long way to go to one.

The rest of the page contains some some common websites where you can find navigation events, a list of some of my favorite events, and my schedule for the year.
