Dublin By Night 2007 Event 1

Ajax Orienteers are running the first event in this year's Dublin By Night series. This takes place this coming Tuesday in Killiney Hill Park. Full details are as follows:

Date 9th. Jan. 2007
Planner/Organiser Paul Smyth (Ajax)
Results/Timing Martin Flynn (Ajax)
Location Killiney Hill Park, Killiney, Co. Dublin.
Grid Ref. O 262 260
Signposting From the junction of Avondale Road with Rochestown Avenue.
Directions Follow Avondale Road from Rochestown Avenue. At the main roundabout (there is a smaller one halfway along) take the third exit on Barnhill Road. Take the second right onto Saval Park Road and continue to the end of the road. The entrance to the park is now opposite.

An interactive map is also available at orienteering.ie
Start Times 18:00-19:30. Courses close at 21:00.
Map The map is drawn at a scale of 1:5000 with 5m contours. Some minor corrections have been made but the map is essentially unchanged from last years event. There will be no map corrections posted at the event. Competitors should note that the map uses a non-standard method of marking paths, which are shown as white or yellow corridors between areas of vegetation. Not all paths are marked but marked paths are generally clear and distinct.
General Info. SportIdent timing will be in use. Bring your own card or rent one at registration. Competitors will need to complete a brief form at registration.

Maps will be pre-printed and bagged with over-printed control descriptions. There are no map exchanges and or second maps on either course. Control descriptions will also be available at registration.

Two courses are available, Long, 2.4 km, 145 m, 18 controls and Short, 1.6 km, 75 m, 11 controls. The courses have been planned with a view to maximising runability and enjoyment. As a result courses are a bit shorter than previously and a bit less technical. Please feel free to provide feedback (good and bad) after your run.

Entry fee is €6.00 euros per competitor.

Safety: Due to the terms of IOA insurance competitors who are under 16 years of age cannot be permitted to take part in this event. There are many high and steep cliffs on the map and although courses do not generally go close to these all competitors should exercise caution when near these areas. A first aid kit will be available at registration.

Orienteering is an adventure sport and competitors take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety.

Martin says: Bring your Garmin GPS, if you have one!
