Tymon park is a typical Dublin urban park with a mix of forested areas and open playing fields. There are three groups of lakes and some hills. The dominant feature is the M50 motorway which bisects the park into two roughly equal halves. This event starts in Tymon Park West on Castletymon Road. The map scale is 1:10,000, with 5m contour intervals.
Long course: 6.6km
Medium Course: 3.9km
Short course: 1.5km, suitable for buggies
The long course crosses the motorway using the footbridges, the other courses stay within Tymon Park West.
We are using Sportident timing. Cards will be available to rent for €2 at the event. Make sure to return to the registration tent and download your SI card immediately after finishing.
See you on Sunday.
