FIF Hillerød Orientering invites to the Danish Championship in Relay and long-distance orienteering on 14-15 September 2019 in the heart of the new National Park “Kongernes Nordsjælland” just outside Hillerød.

The competition area is Grib Skov Mårum and Søskoven where the WMOC 2018 long distance finals took place. For the Danish Championships completely, new orienteering maps will be prepared.

We aim for a compact event with high quality, good service and exciting sporting experiences – whether you are a participant or engaged spectator. We aim to create an intense relay atmosphere with excitement for the audience and the running teams and with the possibility of some intense competition between the competitors in the forest. In the long distance, participants will be challenged by highly varied terrain types and courses with long stretches and with several route choices and fine orienteering into the controls that will challenge everyone.

The competition area is embargoed area according to the Danish Orientering Federation (DOF) regulations §2.8 and from July 16th 1 2018 the area is out of bounds for potential athletes and other team members in the Danish Championships and the World Ranking Event.  See the embargoed area on the website http://www.fiforientering.dk/wp-dm2019/ under the menu: Before raceday / Embargoed area
