Route Description:
This route goes to the top of Keeper Hill, which at 694m high is the highest peak in the Shannon area. From the start, head up the forest road. Take the third left, and then the next left to reach the top. Then turn and back the same route.
Getting There:
Killoscully, Co. Tipperary

Directions from Newport: if you are coming through Newport from Limerick (heading east on the R503), go over the bridge in Newport and take a left. Go straight out this road and take a right at the graveyard. Take your next left and then next left again (there's about 2.7km between these lefts). This takes you over a small bridge. Follow this road for about 4.5km to Killoscully Village.

Registration will take place in the village, and it will be necessary to carpool to the race start due to limited parking there. Please arrive early to allow for this!

Volunteers (Running)

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
