Notes

Parking and registration will be at  St. Colmcille's Senior National School, 16 Idrone Ave, Knocklyon, Dublin, D16 W8K0, Ireland

Getting There:
Turn off Knocklyon Road behind the SuperValu onto Idrone Avenue. Stay on Idrone Avenue for ca 300m until you see the school and car park on your right.
Google maps: "St. Colmcille's Senior National School", Idrone Avenue, Dublin 16.
GPS: 53.284341, -6.317347
Eircode: D16 W8K0

There should be ample parking directly in front of the school. There is a second smaller car park beside the school, in front of the pastoral centre and church and we have been asked to AVOID parking in this area as there will be mass at 10AM and 12PM

There will be 3 courses, Adventure, Medium and Long (about 2km, 3km and 5km in distance). If you're new we strongly recommend doing the Adventure which is aimed at people with no navigation experience.

The main thing to bear in mind is that while the estate is pretty quite traffic wise, there are a few laneways that join onto estate roads at bends in the roads making it difficult to see oncoming traffic so some care is needed.
