Start times 6 pm to 7 pm, courses close 8 pm.
Approximate course lengths of 6.5 km and 3.5 km.
Please pre-enter if you can, so you can avail of the early bird rate and we can get you into he results system. There will be entry on the day at a higher rate.

Here is a location map: Openstreetmap.
Public transport is not great and will require a walk: Dublin Bus route 37 towards Castleknock and walk 1.5 km; C5, C6 and 26 to Chapelizod and walk 2 km.
There are portable toilets available at the Papal Cross car park.
You will need a torch or a headlamp to take part in the event - the light from something like a mobile phone will not be enough.
Controls will have SIAC (contactless punching) enabled. Maps will be on waterproof paper at 1:7500 scale, with control descriptions in IOF symbols on the map.
Please keep clear of the deer in the park and be careful crossing any roads.
Thanks to the OPW for permission to stage the event.
