Event descriptionEvent and terrain description Aligots Orienteering Club invites you to experience a weekend of races in Girona, one of the most challenging and beautiful cities in Europe. Races through the roman walled city, with tight alleyways dating from medieval times and a labyrinth of narrow steps and botanical gardens will prove a challenge to even the most experienced sprint orienteering athlete. Game of Thrones, the TV serie, was shot in Girona. The surrounding green valleys, river, fort and woodland provide the perfect backdrop to the main race, with a course set to surprise you. We have a full programme for the weekend of the 10-11 November 2018, with the official Middle Distance Euro-City Race, plus two additional orienteering races – one Middle Distance and one Sprint Distance. All maps are newly updated to ISSOM sprint requirements and scaled at 1:5000. Getting to Girona Girona is 50 kms from the border with France and just 40 kms from the Mediterranean coast. The best way to get here in November is by plane to Barcelona airport, by high-speed train from Paris or Madrid or by motorway. French rail company SNCF (http://www.sncf.com/)run the line from Paris, and Spanish rail company Renfe (http://www.renfe.com/) from Madrid.
