Cork and Kerry Orienteering

This Saturday there will be orienteering on the University College Cork main campus in Cork city. If you haven’t done urban orienteering before, why not come along and try it out? There will be two courses, a Short course (~1.5km) for beginners and a longer course (~3.2km) for the more experienced. Registration and parking will be from 12.00pm-2.00pm from the Western Gateway Building on Western Road (that’s the old dog track for the Corkonians reading this). This event is a fundraiser for the Irish Junior Squad so come along and support some of our up and coming athletes.
