Big Tahoma is an endurance navigation race in which teams use a map and a compass to visit as many of the 50-60 checkpoints as they can in their choice of 4, 8, 12 or 24 hours. Compete either on foot, on mountain bike, or both in the duathlon division in the 8-Hour, 12-in-24 Hour, and 24-Hour events. You can go solo in the 4-Hour or 8-Hour events or in a team of 2-5 in the longer events.
This sport originated in Australia and is known as rogaining. When it came to the U.S. it landed in the Pacific Northwest first, but is now done all over North America and around the world.
