The 8th Leinster League event will be in Trooperstown on Sunday, May 12th. Four days away.
The forecast is for dry conditions. 

The course details are below;

Course:   Length:       Climb      Number of controls
Brown           7.5km      265 m     24 ctls
Blue             5km      185m      20 ctls
Green           4km      110 m    14 ctls
Light Green    3.2km    120 m     12 ctls
Red              4.00km      170m     13 ctls
Orange         2.2km       75 m    14 ctls
Yellow          2km         20m      12 ctls
Short Green   2.8km      85 m    11 ctls

The walk to the Start will take about 20 minutes, 1.2km in length. The walk will take you through some of the nicest parts of the Trooperstown map.

The printing scale will be 1:10000 for Blue and Brown courses and 1:7500 for all other courses.

You will have noticed the addition of a Short Green course in the list above. We would be interested in your feedback on this option.

THe event will be signposted from the Forest Entrance.

Thanks Mary/Aoife/Brian B & all the GEN crew for last Sunday. Absolutely exhilarating to get a run through bluebells under an oak forest...
Standout memory of seeing Aonghus dropping like a stone heading for control 11 on the Brown. Looking at the split times it turns out he was 2nd fastest on that leg.. I shudder to think how fast Angus must have been going to beat him!

Agreed - was so nice to be back in runnable woodland and nice open terrain - and the map scale changes are always interesting. Thanks again
