See Map. If the weather is bad with poor visibility, the race will turn back at Corrig Mountain peak i.e. the section from Corrig out to Seefingan and back will be dropped. I know some people relish the challenge of an open mountain race requiring a degree of navigation in zero visibility, but I'm afraid you'll have to look to Championship and Nav challenge races for that kind of challenge. Decision will be made on the night shortly before the start.
Registration will be at the race start (see maps). RUNNERS MUST CARPOOL. There is no designated car park at the race start, and there is limited parking only along a narrow country road. There is plenty of parking at Aherns Pub in Oldbawn, Tallaght. Please ensure all cars have 4 -5 runners approaching race start. Note that Ahern's pub is partly obscured by a big new Paddy Power sign on the building that is attached to the roadfront side of the pub. It is easy to pass by without seeing the pub. The race start is only 7k from the pub - an ideal opportunity to get a little cross-training in on your bicycle! (and reduce parking congestion at the start.)
This is a long, very hard route on open mountain (12 km, approx 550m climbing). the longest race in the Leinster League. It is not a race for beginners; please don't attempt it unless you are confident of your fitness to complete a race with this profile. The winning time is expected to be around 60 mins, with people finishing anything up to 2 hours or more after they start. There will be an early start at 7.00 for people who normally finish at 160% or more of the winner's time. Runners should be suitably attired and well prepared for whatever the weather brings on the day. Trail or mountain running shoes are advised.
