Combaun Wood to Templehill
Saturday 19 February, 2011
5 (1,2,2) - Easy Terrain, 200M - 500M ascent, 6Km - 10Km
- Only major junctions marked
The course starts 200 metres from the barrier on forestry roads, we stay on the forest road for 2 and a half miles where you come to sheep pens and a stile to the open mountain at this point we leave the forest road and head for the summit the ridge takes you to the right by a rocky outcrop then you keep to the left as you come to the top where the trig point is on top of a rocky pile, touch this and it is all down hill from here back the way you came to the point you started at (if the day is foggy this could be tricky).
Combe wood is just up a mile from Angelsborough. If you are coming from Mitchelstown you turn off at the Firgrove roundabout for Limerick (R513) you keep on this route for about two miles, at the far side of the glen there is a right turn for Angelsborough. When you get to Angelsborough take a sharp right hand turn at the Community centre the Church is on your left and the national school will be on your right. When you turn up this road, follow this road for about a mile Combe wood is the only forestry on your left hand side, if you find yourself going down a very steep hill have passed it by.
This may be called Temple hill but it is a proper mountain and even though the open mountain section is just over half a mile it is very steep. There will be refreshments afterwards in Angelsborough in the local pub. if you want to pre-enter please email me (email@example.com) and I will hold your number or if you have raced this year and have a number let me know and all you have to do is turn up on the day with your 10 euro.
You need to have done 2 non-running volunteer roles in a calendar year to qualify for end of year prize
Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running. Race directors need a minimum number of people available throughout the race to make the race work so non-running volunteers are preferable. While it can be helpful, volunteering in a volunteer and race capacity does not count towards qualifying for end of year prize
