Be prepared to embark on a time travel journey back to the 1960s and where the rustic beauty and well-preserved heritage of the island continues to draw visitors and avid explorers year after year.
Unique Race Format – Orienteering Race
Ubin Wayfinder will be structured in a sequence-based Orienteering Race – a sport originated from over 100 years ago which involves natural obstacles, navigation, and endurance.
The race categories for Ubin WayFinder 2015 includes the competitive Ubin Open Solo (10km) , Ubin Sprint Duo (8km) and Ubin Mixed Duo (6km), as well as non-competitive Ubin Explore (4-6km)
To win the race, participants have to be (1) fastest in following the fixed sequence from Start to Finish and (2) accurate navigation of all checkpoints prescribed on the Race Map.
For non-competitive Ubin Explorers, they will be given a map with all the actual checkpoints used for the competitive category and score points upon checking in at each station.
