Event descriptionThree of France's premier events: the french night and sprint championships, plus the CNE, our equivalent of the big scandanavian relays. The night race and the CNE will be held on the Plateau du Larzac near Le Caylar (about an hour's drive NW of Montpellier), well-known as a favourite training ground for France's best orienteers. Part of the area has been used before, but much of it is either new for orienteering or unused since 2005. The terrain is among the nicest on the plateau, a good balance between technicality and runnability : perfect for crowning the kings and queens of the Larzac dark arts. The French sprint championships will also use a new city area.
Terrain descriptionMostly semi-open runnable grassland, rich in contour and rock detail. Patches of dense vegetation to avoid (mostly box trees and bushes), and some light green forest.
