The Calke Explorer is an orienteering type trail event for all abilities. Participants will navigate their way around the spectacular Calke estate to find a series of checkpoints at their own pace, using a map they will be given at the start line.
Start times will be staggered so you can't just follow the person(s) in front, but you can opt to team up with friends, club-mates of family members.
 

It is part of the Calke Outdoor Weekender, so there are also plenty of other things to get involved in back at the COW arena. These include yoga, natural movement workshops, inspirational talks, or just relaxing with some great food. Click HERE for more info.

As part of our environmental policy, t-shirts are an optional extra (so not produced for those that don't want one). And/or you have the option of joining the National Forest 'Plant a Tree' scheme as an alternative. 

Entry fees include general entry entrance to Calke Park and activities in the COW arena.

£5 Discount for National Trust Members (£2.50 children).  £2 supplement for unaffiliated.
