SEVO will host a colour coded event on the intricate boulder area of the Comeraghs used in 2016 for the IOC.

In the absence of a Munster league, this will be  of a similar standard. Please enter a s early as possible to faciltate printing of maps. Register here

Planner: Robert Pim. Controller: Liisa Honkasaari. Organiser: Andrew Cox

Provisional course lengths: Brown 7 km; Blue 6.2 km; Green 4.8 km; Light green 4 km; Red 4km; Orange 2.4 km; Yellow 1.9 km

Climb to be calculated. It is significant. No courses are buggy friendly. Anyone with a buggy is recommended to take the surfaced path into the waterfall. Younger runners may need some shadowing.

All maps will be on waterproof paper. The longer courses will use 1 to 7500 scale with shorter courses at 1 to 5000 due to complexity of detail on the map.

No toilets available at this venue. Try any of the following options:

Crough Coffee at Mahon Bridge. You might consider car pooling from this spot to reduce traffic on the narrow mountain road.

Applegreen in Leamybrien here



There will be a Control pick exercise available for those interested after their run. This will be weather dependent. Let Dave Masterson know if you are interested.
