Join Setanta for an exciting winters evening of orienteering in sheltered Wicklow woods.

The second Dublin By Night event takes place this Saturday evening 20th January 2018 at Ballyward, Blessington, Co Wicklow.

Ballyward is a medium sized very runnable wood with a great mix of linear and point features, and without brambles.

For insurance reasons, this event is for over 16 years of age.

There will be the usual two courses.
Long 3.8km with 110m climb.
Short 2.1 km with 70m climb.

Premarked maps will be in plastic bags (unfortunately printer does not have waterproof paper available)., are A4 in size with 1:10,000 scale and 5m contour interval.
Starts will be from 18.30 to 19.30 but due to 0.5km long narrow laneway from public road you must be parked by 19.00 at the latest.
Courses close at 20.30

Sportident timing will be used. For those without an SI card, the cost of hiring a card is €2 with a charge of €40 if it is lost by the competitor (so don’t lose it).

The event is at grid ref O 041 147 and will be signposted from Manor Kilbride.
