Courses will be a mix of urban residential, and hilly parkland. Some of the hills are physically demanding. The River Valley Parkland has grassy open spaces, some steps, is muddy in parts, with marsh and flooding in western end. Lots of wooded area with walked paths and additional branched unmarked paths created by bike activity. There are additional fallen trees and branch debris from the recent winds.

We will be using the Fingal CoCo Ward Rivervalley car park for parking & registration. Entrance found off the Hilltown Road on the bend across the road from River Valley Community centre FQ34+9M (please note, Google maps does not currently show this car park). Usual O kite will be at the entrance.
