Once again the Ajax Autumn Leinster League event returns to the excellent, technical, Carraig Na Seabhac, in central Wicklow. The map has been partially updated and Aonghus O’Cleirigh has planned some excellent, challenging courses, with oversight by controller Donal Wickham.
The usual range of courses are being provided but please be aware that the Yellow and Orange courses are not suitable for buggy’s and are likely to be wet underfoot. All the usual goodies, SI, water-resistant maps and refreshments afterwards, with usual entry fees and start window. Cagoules may be compulsory if the weather warrants it, so bring one just in case. Whistles recommended!
It’s up to 1km. walk to the start from parking and this is along a public road so allow yourself plenty of time and please beware of traffic.
