Over the last 54 years, DVO has staged 1000 events throughout the county, in city parks, urban areas, forests and Peak District moorland. We have 180 members, many of whom take on roles as event officials. However, we are an ageing club and need to recruit more runners and young families. The appointment of an energetic and enthusiastic CDO will ensure that orienteering in Derbyshire has a bright sustainable future!
