The next round of the Campus Sprint Series / Junior Squad fund raiser takes place in Limerick next Saturday 12 March.
Race 1 will take place at Mary Imaculate College on the west side of Limerick - easily accessible from the Dublin - Limerick - Ennis motorway, see

Unfortunately there is another event on at Mary I that morning so it may not be easy to park in the College. It is recommended that you park on the road outside. There should be plenty of space.
Start times 11-1.
We will have registration in the Foundation Building (the main building) in room number is G10 which is on the ground floor behind the reception area.
The race will be on a brand new 1:2000 (note scale!) map by Pat Healy. Two course have been planned by Pat and Jackie Mc Cavana and these will be of the order of 2.5 km and 1.5 km each.
These races are intended to be the \"prologue\" to the \"final\" which will be held in University of Limerick in the afternoon. The first 20 or so in the Mary I race will enter the \"A\" final, the next 20 or so the \"B\" final and so on.
For UL Directions:- Follow signs to the University of Limerick. Please approach via the main entrance (it has giant flagpoles). Take the first exit at the first roundabout and the first exit at the second roundabout. The car park is on the right hand side.
Safety Notice:- The main road running through the campus can be quite busy.
The courses will be on a 1:4000 sprint map and have been planned by Danny O\'Hare and comprise long 3.3km medium 2.4km short 1.5km.
For start times the UL event will run between 2pm and 3.30pm for general entries but the faster runners can run later at 2min intervals
B Final start times from 2.30 to 3.08
A Final start times from 3.10 to 3.48
Please note that it is forbidden to go through buildings marked in black.
Cost will be €10 for both races for adults.
We are trying to encourage studnets and members of OPC (outdoor pursuits clubs) in UL to race and the cost for them will be a low student price of €4.
Hope to see you all there.
