Summary The competition area consists of 3 separate woods (Glenabo, Coolroe and Knockananig). There will be 2 separate starts and 2 separate finishes Start 1 is for the longest and shortest courses (1,2,4,5,10,11,13,14). The longest courses use all 3 woods. The shortest courses use Knockananig wood only. Start 2 is for the rest of the courses (3,6,7,8,9,12). These use Glenabo wood only. Both Glenabo and Coolroe wood have a mixture of native deciduous forest and coniferous sections between them. Runability varies very significantly so the optimum route choice will involve careful navigation to avoid slower areas and areas with undergrowth. Knockananig wood is primarily a large scale coniferous plantation, a lot of which has recently been thinned, but it has a range of features like boulders, walls, rides and paths and some variation in the vegetation in the parts which are used.

Parking will be along a forest road in Knockananig wood. It is about 5 minutes from J15 (toll €1.90) on the M8 but may also be accessed from other junctions North or South of the tolled section.

Assembly and Download will be located at the start of parking by the entrance to Knockananig Wood.
Start 1 will be at the far end of parking away from assembly in Knockananig Wood (900m from registration but maybe 400m from end of parking).
Start 2 will be located in Glenabo wood. The walk to Start 2 from assembly will be 1.8 km along a very quiet public road.
The finish for the medium and long courses (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,12) will be located in a field adjacent to assembly. The finish for the short courses (10,11,13,14) with be located close to their start (at the far end of parking)

There have been orienteering maps of the various woods going back several decades. All of the competition area has been remapped to ISOM2017-2 using GPS. 50% of the area is covered by LIDAR and the remaining contours were derived from photogrammetry with significant alterations using a barometric altimeter.
All Maps are A4 size and will be printed on 125g photo paper using the club inkjet printer and will be bagged.
