Information Please note earlier registration, start and course closure times. This is due to the shorter day length.
White, yellow, orange and light green start is approx. 150m from registration. Green, blue and brown start is 2km and 135m climb along tracks and paths within the forest. The finish is close to assembly. There will not be a clothing dump, competitors wishing to wear a light jacket to the far start are advised to carry a bum bag.

To try and make best use of the darker nights, the DNC will start and finish a bit earlier again this year and also includes an event in between Christmas and New Year to keep the momentum going. Two courses 3km and 5km at TD5/Green standard as far as possible. No concessions to the dark.

As this is a shared series, we operate a separate blog with full list of dates, venues, travel maps, final results and chat – DNC Blog. Once it kicks off in earnest check there rather than here for up to date details like snow reports.
There are lavish prizes for the best M/W Junior and Senior in each Cup and a host of frivolous prizes for things like the Toughest of the Tough for the most gruelling courses and Best/Worst Mistake. Seriously though, this is one of the most competitive leagues around and worth turning out for if only for the challenge of finding your way around areas you thought you knew pretty well until someone turned the lights out!
