There will be an early start time of 10:30am available for Scout Groups by arrangement. Contact 087 616 4244 or email setanta.orienteers@gmail.com

Parking around Hellfire Woods gets very congested every weekend so please car pool if you can and kindly follow the car parking marshals instructions, parking will be on forest road at top of Hellfire Woods car park.

Fees: EUR 5.00 per person. Family EUR 12.00
SI Rental: EUR 2.00
It will be possible to pay by SumUp which is an online debit card payment system.

There will be three courses on offer, the Map Scale is 1:7500

Approximate Course Details:
Long – Experienced Orienteers – 5.5km – 17 controls – 240m climb
Medium – Novices – 3.9km – 12 controls – 135m climb
Short – beginners – 2.5km – 12 controls – 105m climb

The short course is ideal for beginners and small children. The medium course is suitable for novices who wish to have a more challenging course than the short course. If you feel like you wish to run through the woods rather than just on the paths and tracks, then the medium may be for you.  The Short and Medium courses will have control descriptions in both English and symbol format. The long course is more suitable for more experienced competitors.

Some light refreshments will be available after your run at registration. We encourage the use of your own cups and cutlery and ask you to remember – Leave No Trace.

Any Scout Leaders thinking of bringing a group of Scouts, please contact Setanta Orienteers in advance, using the number or email shown above, in order to get an idea of numbers.

We look forward to seeing you there.
