The 5th and final event in the 2018 Dublin by Night series will be held by CNOC on the Curragh.
No under-16s.

There will be a mass start for both courses at 7.00pm.

The start and finish will be at Blackrath Cottages.

Map here.

Due to some parking restrictions there will be 500m between parking and the start/finish area.
This will be along a flat paved road. Please take this into account so as not to be late for the mass start.

From most directions, including Dublin, take the M7, coming off at exit 12. Head towards Kilcullen/Athgarvan for approx 1.75km and before reaching Athgarvan turn right. 
Continue for 900m and turn left up the hill. Start/finish will be on grass at the top of the hill, we will direct you to the parking from there.
We will put up some signs but these may be difficult to see at night, so please ensure that you know where you're going.

Starts
7.00pm mass start for all courses.
Please arrive in plenty of time to allow us to register everyone.
For those who arrive late we will try to accommodate you up until 7.30pm, though be aware that courses close at 8.30pm.
If you'd like to run earlier we will try to accomodate you as long as we're ready to go.
Registration will be from approx 6.15pm

Courses
Long 4.9km 70m
Short 2.1 20m
Courses will be heavily gaffled, so double check that you are heading to the correct control.

Mapping Notes
Scale 1:7500, 2.5m contours
Previous map can be viewed here.
Note that white represents short grass and not forest.

Planner: Kevin O'Boyle
Organiser: Conor Short

There will be tea, coffee and biscuits available at the finish, so do come and join us for a a great night of orienteering.

The Dublin-by-Night League Table can be accessed via the Dublin by Night 2018 webpage

Conor Short has a tenuous lead on the long course and could easily be dethroned by any of Josefine Klintberg (DUO), Angus Tyner (Setanta) or Colm Hill (CNOC), as long as they manage to keep a cool head in the heavily gaffled mass start darkness.

Cliodhna Donaghy (GEN) looks like she's cruising home to victory on the short course.

I have updated the original post with this info.

Thanks for the league update Marcus, I won't be running so I'll be watching anxiously at the finish!

Thanks to all those who braved the conditions tonight, I hope you enjoyed the run. 
Apologies for the lack of tea and coffee, the wind blew our tent away!

Results are now up on the results page.
