Event descriptionSisteron is a wonderfull region just south of the Alps. Terrain is very particular. In France, we call it "The moon". The sun is always present in Sisteron. The region is perfect to train with good weather conditions. From december to end february, snow is comming very few during the winter (max. 5cm) and melts very fast (~1/2 days). The maps are very difficults for Scandinavian orienters because of the ravines. It is possible to train Sprint in old typical cities like Forcalquier and Sisteron.
Terrain descriptionSimone Niggli: "Sisteron gives you best possibilites for trainings in beautiful surroundings. A beautiful place for both orienteering- and runningtrainings as well as for good french food!"
