Hardwick Park - Sunday 19 May 2024

E M League & Yvette Baker heat

About this event

Orienteer at Hardwick Park in our East Midlands League event. The park is lovely in May, with the hills, re-wilding and terraced ponds adding navigational challenge. Nine courses will be available to enter in advance (or on the day), suitability as follows:

White – families with young children
Yellow/Orange – improvers/older children
Light Green – some experience ideally!
Very Short Green – a less physical course for older competitors, but with full nav challenge (less climb than other courses)
Short Green – older League participants
Green, Blue & Brown – navigationally challenging, but increasing in length

Our volunteers will help you get started with the orienteering map and the dibber (timing chip) that we use. Online entries are open on Fabian, see link below.

Yvette Baker Trophy: This event incorporates a heat of the Yvette Baker Trophy – could juniors who are also members of an orienteering club please let their team captains know that they are entering? DVO juniors – please email Ann-Marie.

Make a family day of it and visit the Hall too : )
