#2 Profiling Virtual Orienteering Courses by Derwent Valley Orienteers

As part of Get Active this Autumn Campaign, British Orienteering are profiling Permanent and Virtual Orienteering Courses every week. 

Permanent and Virtual Orienteering Courses are a fantastic local, flexible and accessible way to keep or get involved with our sport so what makes your local course so special? British Orienteering will be sharing inspiring examples of a Permanent or Virtual Orienteering Course from a UK club every week.

This week's profiling is of some of Derwent Valley Orienteers (DVO)s favourite Virtual Orienteering Courses.  Enjoy and be inspired!

Please do read and share this profile of DVO's Virtual Orienteering Courses and take heart from its success, as well as using the hints and tips provided by the club.
