Event descriptionDanish Championship Long Distance 2020 is arranged on Sunday 13. September in the forest surrounding the small city of Aabenraa. On Saturday 12. September a pre-event is held in the forest of Graasten. As the terrain if very similar to the Aabenra Forests this event is well suited as pre-training for the Saturday competition.
Terrain descriptionThe terrain consists predominantly of mixed open deciduous forest with few areas of coniferous forest. There is an extensive network of paths, roads and ditches. The area varies with moderate to strong slopes, and with diverse runnability. In general, the forest is relatively open with a good deal of blackberry growing in dense groups and some undergrowth. The high degree of variation makes it a challenging and intriguing terrain for orienteering. This description is valid for both event days.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.The city of Aabenraa is a typical Danish town with shops, restaurants and cafes, a busy harbour and a nice sandy beach. Aabenraa Camping and Hostel is located close to the Event Centre. Within one hours drive from Aabenraa you will find world class tourist attractions such as Lego Land (Billund), Denmark’s Museum for the Sea (Esbjerg), the Dybbøl Mill (Sønderborg), Universe Science Park (Nordborg) and many other interesting places to visit.
