Event descriptionAn event that should have happened in October 2020, but has now been given a new official date for the end of October 2021. These are three of France's premier events: the french night and sprint championships, plus the CNE, our equivalent of the big scandanavian relays. The night race (thursday) and the CNE (sunday) will be held on the Plateau du Larzac near Le Caylar (about an hour's drive NW of Montpellier). Part of the area has been used before, but much of it is either new for orienteering or unused since 2008. The terrain is among the nicest on the plateau, a good balance between technical difficulty and runnability. The French sprint championships (WRE) will take place on the saturday in the nearby historic town of Béziers, its first use for orienteering.
Terrain descriptionThe Plateau du Larzac areas are mostly semi-open runnable grassland, rich in contour and rock detail, with patches of dense vegetation to avoid (mostly box trees and bushes) and some light green forest.
Training possibilitiesSome training events will also take place earlier in the week and on friday 29th
