Leinster League
Race starts 20m past forestry gate. Straight for a couple of hundred metres up track until T Junction. Take right, proceed for another couple of hundred taking RIGHT as the road turns left and climb up a (not bad) quality narrow trail. Climb for a few minutes up and take right at T junction with forestry road. Continue on this road. After 400 m. take a left fork on the good quality forest road. Climb a little bit. Keep an eye out to the right for markers that will bring you down through the trees. Follow the markers and continue down past the ending of the trees onto a rough vehicle track through felled trees (new from last year). Climb over wire fence and turn left on path up main climb to Seahan. At the Trig point on the top of Seahan turn right for Corrig which hopefully will be visible about 1.0km away, along what is initially a rather faint track. Of the two routes marked in this general direction, you take the one to the right. At the trig point (biggish stone) on Corrig turn back towards Seahan and return to the Seahan trig point. Then turn around and continue along a very clear path in a direction slightly to the left of the route you earlier took towards Corrig. Follow this track as it turns slowly to the left and descend eventually towards a fence near the edge of the forest. Continue along this fence until you reach a point about 1.5km from the top of Seahan where there is a fairly good track to the left down through trees (don?t take the first, earlier track, also a good quality track). After you turn left the descent becomes steeper. Ignore a tempting left turn onto a good quality forest road further down. Keep on the trail, slightly to the right as it deteriorates and eventually twists and turns, and eventually goes left through the trees as a narrow path. This path leads onto a good quality forest track. Run along this track until you turn left at the original T junction back to start/finish. If you can remember all that, you are way better than me!! But the route will be marked, so don?t worry.
