Notes

Entry via this online entry system only.

This is not a maprun event. There will be regular controls used on the day. Instruction will be available for those that need it.

Short : 2km

Medium : 4km

Long : 8km

Climb is negligible on all courses

SI will be used for timing and rental SI cards will be available on the day

 

The short course will mostly be on paths with some controls slightly off paths, having to go through grass or unpaved to reach these. The medium course is a mix on paths and off, not too difficult. The long course has a bit of everything and will go through woods at different stages so full leg wear is recommended.

Map : 1:5000 A3 redrawn by Eileen Young December 2021 from the 2020 map updated by Val Jones and Eileen Young, from the original by Laurence Quinn and used by kind permission of Orienteering Ireland. The event takes place entirely in the Sport Ireland Campus and does NOT cross into the Tolka Valley Fingal map.
