Coming from M50, get off at Junction 12 (Firhouse), and head away from city. At first roundabout, take a left onto Ballycullen road. Head straight through two junctions and turn left at a crossroads onto Gunny Hill. At the t-junction at the end, turn right onto Kilakee road. Hellfire car park is a few kilometres up the road on the right.

Coming from Buglers (carpool location): Take a left coming out of Buglers and head straight through the Ballyboden road roundabout. Take the next right for Scholarstown Road (signposted Glencree) and take the next left for Stocking Lane (again signposted Glencree). Follow this road until you see Hellfire on the right (across from Massy's on the left).

Registration is at Hellfire car park (see Getting there instructions above) and will be open from 6:15 to 7:15.

3 people minimum per car. If you're arriving with less than 3 people, please call to Bugler's (the prizegiving location, see getting there instructions) and arrange to car pool with someone there. Vivian O'Gorman will be on duty there to arrange people into groups for anyone who's worried about not recognising other runners.

Annual registration is €10 (€5 for the unwaged) and race registration is €7 (€4 for the unwaged). Bring exact change if you can to help smooth registration.

Make sure you hand back your number after the race
