We, Norfolk Trails (UK), have challenged our Canadian twin (Norfolk Trails, Canada) to an international Geocaching Race – first across the ocean wins!
Geocaching is an exciting outdoor treasure hunt but on a global scale. All over the world small containers, known as caches, have been hidden in all sorts of places and, with only a grid reference and a clue, you have to see how many you can find. We have not escaped the Geocaching bug, and instead have begun to set up a network of Geocache series across their trail network. Currently you will find Geocache trails on the Nar Valley Way, Wensum Way and Weavers’ Way, with more lined up to be installed this year, with the help of dedicated Norfolk Trails volunteers.
To promote Geocaching, Norfolk Trails have set up an international Travel Bug Race. Geocachers on both sides of the ocean are invited to join the race using their very own trackable (Geocoin or travel bug) and see if they can be the first to make it from one Norfolk Trails across the ocean to the other; being moved from cache to cache with the help of many international Geocachers!
To get involved, UK Geocachers need to get their trackable to the starting cache before the 21st June. For more information, and to sign yourself up to the race, visit our Canadian Cousin’s site.
This race has been organised in association with HNAG (Haldimand Norfolk Area Geoacachers) a community geocaching group based in Norfolk, Canada.
