Yvette Baker Trophy

A request for all DVO members M/W18 and under to run at Cromford Moor on Sunday, April 26th.

The Yvette Baker Trophy is a competition only for junior orienteers, designed to allow you to run your normal course standard of orienteering. This first round heat will be taking place along side the DVO event at Cromford Moor and the courses will range from Yellow to Green standard. There will be no timed starts so competitors can start at any time provided it is not within four minutes of another runner from the same club. It is also possible for yellow standard runners to compete in pairs. All finishers will receive a score based on their position so it is important we have as many qualifying runs as possible. If successful DVO will progress to the final in Nottingham on July 5th.
