We will be using a new ‘Rogaine’ map for the occasion. Controls will be pre-marked on this map with the control descriptions.  
The 24 hour course will also be using the ‘Lugnacoille and Glendalough’ map by EastWest Mapping. This map can be purchased at  https://eastwestmapping.ie/product/lugnaquilla-glendalough-2/
Competitors will have to mark the controls on the EastWest map using grid reference issued at the event start, as per previous years.
The ‘Rogaine’ map will only be issued to teams on the 24 hour course from midnight during competition time, at the hash house. The map will be displayed at the start to facilitate teams planning their routes. No controls on the ‘Rogaine’ map may be punched before any team has been issued their map.

The 6 hour course will be exclusively on the new ‘Rogaine’ map and the EastWest map is not necessary.

The start will be in Oakwood forest. The entrance is at https://maps.app.goo.gl/mazg3s24FKu8ppDq8 with the start a further 15 minute drive from here along a forest road. Please allow time for parking and a short walk to the assembly.
