6 (2,2,2) - Moderate Terrain, 200M - 500M ascent, 6Km - 10Km
- Route fully marked
Men - 23:05 (Gerry Brady, Clonliffe) Women - 28:19 (Beth McCluskey)
Start above 2nd barrier on hill climb at southern end of seafront. Follow Way markers towards Cross. Halfway up through trees the path forks: take the right fork to follow the Way marked path and approach cross from west. Climb through rocks to touch cross. Continue to southern summit and do a short loop before returning by the same route to cross. Do not go to cross on return, instead take a right turn around 20m beyond where you came out from cross on way up and then an almost immediate left turn (see small deviation on route map). Descend through trees by almost exactly the same route as ascent (see small deviation on route map) and finish at cul de sac sign before the promenade.
Registration for Bray will be in the Martello Bar on the esplanade in BRAY
The new route from 2011 is the same as the 1980s to 2004 route apart from the start is at the 2nd barrier rather than at the foot of climb, a new small loop at southern summit rather than immediate turnaround, and the new finish is at the start barrier rather than continuing to where the grass promenade commences.
