Event descriptionAn adventure rogaine, where teams of 2 to 5 choose which checkpoints to visit within the time allowed with the intent of maximizing their score. Checkpoints have different point values. The team can freely choose the number and order of checkpoints. The team with the most points is the winner. The map is an IOF map, scale 1:15 000, with a contour interval of 5 metres. The map is printed on one A2 size sheet, damp proof paper, and is specifically made for the competition. Each team member receives his/her own map.
Terrain descriptionThe forest of Saint Michel stretches over 2000 hectares. It is irrigated by many rivers. Altitudes between 170 and 270 m. It is a forest characterized by a very good penetrability, an alternation of deciduous trees and fir trees, beautiful charcoal terraces, plateaus separated by shallow valleys occupied by fairly large rivers. The flanks of the valleys, generally not very pronounced, are sometimes abrupt and embellished with a few small cliffs. From the battle of May 1940 there are still numerous military fortifications built in prolongation of the Maginot line and anti-tank ditches placed between the two lines of defense. The mapping surveys were conducted in the spring and fall of 2015.
