Currently finalising the map and 2 courses for the club champs this Saturday.
Long, Light Green standard 3.5km 85m climb 15 controls
Short Orange (Yellow with a couple challenging legs) 2.2km 15m climb.
Location, coast road between Rathnew and Newcastle.
5 minutes from M11 exit 15 if coming from Dublin direction.
Parking in a field with Start/Finish adjacent.
Shelter in the form of a barn is also adjacent. Here will be hot drinks and flapjacks and whatever else may be brought.
This is no walk in the park! Most of the long course is through woodland, some of it dense. You will encounter mud, stream/ditch crossing, brambles. I am currently removing barbed wire, so hopefully you will not encounter any.
Short course is mainly along field or woodland margins. Some mud, but mostly good underfoot conditions, though with the wet week ahead, wet feet are likely.
There is electric fencing. Live only along the uncrossable fence marked in red. Animals will be confined to a single field marked out bounds.
