Event descriptionORIENTEERING OPEN “VENTA DEL MORO” Two days of orienteering which will include an Orienteering Sprint Championship in the urban setting of Venta del Moro and a Regional Orienteering League “Long Distance” race in which, according to the difficulty and the categories, the runners will use up to three maps of the different areas. We therefore invite you to enjoy with us entertaining moments dedicated to the discovery of Orienteering as a sport. The strategic emplacement, a few minutes away from the Cabriel river, makes Venta del Moro the ideal location to enjoy all the adventure activities that can be performed in the area within the “Hoces del Cabriel” Nature Park. Its territory is the third in extension in the province of Valencia. The municipal district is divided in two very different scenic areas: the eastern part consists of wide areas of vineyards, dotted with small extensions of pine forests where some of the best and unique trees of the province can be found, and the western part, where the Rubial mountains coincide with the Cabriel river bank, which is more rugged and mountainous, with numerous ravines, including places of indescribable beauty such as the spectacular “Hoces y Cuchillos del Cabriel”, the “Vadocañas” bridge, built in the XVIth century on a structure of Roman origin, “El Retorno”, “El Tete”, “Tamayo”, “Los Cárceles”, “La Fonseca”... Be assured that our commitment is to change our slogan at the end of these trials: “You were not lost”
