Rathfarnham Chrimb-O
GEN Orienteering are pleased to invite you the inaugural "Chrimb-O"
We hope that this pre-Christmas night orienteering event followed by a social get together can become an annual fixture. All welcome, particularly newcomers to the sport and non-club members. In time-honoured tradition bring your map to the pub to discuss routes!

Directions/Registration etc
If you are travelling by car we recommend parking on Beaufort Downs - this is a residential area, please respect the residents and park responsibly.
The event is easily accessible on public transport, ideal if you coming for the social element of the evening. You can leave a bag with us while you go out on your course.

Registration and download will be in the silver van. Start/finish about 250m away (taped). After your course you must download even if you don't get all the flags.

Start will be open from 18.00 - 19.00. We plan to bring in flags at 7:30pm, not because we're grinches but because we also want to go to the pub. If you think you'll be longer please try your best to get there as early as possible!

Course Details
Street orienteering around the housing estates, parks and dark corners of Rathfarnham.
There are no major road crossings however participants need to be aware of traffic and pedestrians in the area.
