I would ask people that are entering to do so as early as possible. Maps are to be printed on A3 paper so we must submit numbers to the printer early.

Cahore

    %0D%0A

  • Terrain: The terrain is mostly runnable sand dunes. The vegetation on the dunes nearer the sea is mostly marram grass. Further away from the sea there is more long grass, ferns, and some brambles making running a bit slower. There are some small trees and bushes in places. Midway down the area there is a large section of marine bushes similar to gorse. This is marked as green fight on the map. Compared to other sand dune areas in Ireland, Cahore is most similar to Bull Island. However there are some larger dunes on Cahore.

Closing for this event is 23:59 Friday.
If you can find it in your soul to enter tonight it would be greatly appreciated.
Arrive early on Sunday so you will still have time to treat your mum to a meal out in the afternoon.

Alas, a single person doing the Brown course will just get 1000 points (which admittedly for me would be a massive improvement, but may not suit the good people quite so well!). It's been a while since I've run on sand dunes but unfortunately I can't make it.
