A chilly morning gave way to a glorious winter day – perfect for orienteering at Candlebark Park in Eltham. A couple of hundred eager navigators agreed with us! The Hard courses were treated to a loop of Eltham Lower Park with its miniature railway nestled beside the river. Then it was south across the bridge, and a climb up into the hillier terrain, where the complicated track network gave lots of route choices. We had a lovely downhill across the open grassland before a final control in some erosion detail. The easier courses had similar loops but did not venture over the bridge.
Thanks to course planners Ian and Sarah, and to the DROC crew of helpers who ensured the event ran smoothly as always.
