East Midlands Championships 2017

The highlight of the East Midland's calendar is the Championships at Bretton Clough and Eyam Moor on Sunday 10 December 2017.

The courses will be in classic Derbyshire high open moorland with complex and steep features formed by natural and mining erosion, offering a wealth of contour and rock detail. The intricately contoured valley of Bretton Clough is a SSSI area, noted for its rare wetland and ancient woodland environments. All courses, except the short junior courses, will experience this challenging area.

With the extra challenge of the ever changing weather at this time of the year, regularly having sunshine, wind and rain all at the same time, this Derwent Valley Orienteers' event will have the full range of courses available: including White and Yellow courses for novices using features such as walls, paths and large ditches to follow, right through to the Black course for the ultimate challenge of Peak District versus orienteer.
