Event Location: Autumn Series event number 5, organized by Ajax, will be held on 20-Nov-2011 on Glendoo Ridge West, Co. Dublin. (Grid Reference: O 131 198).
Event Directions and Parking: The event is signposted from Killakee. Travel approx. 2.5 km from Killakee on the road towards Glencree. Parking is off-road on tracks, and is close to the event start and finish.
Map: The area was previously used for the IOC relays this year. Maps are pre-marked and printed at a scale of 1:7,500 on water resistant material. Contour interval is 5 meters. Control descriptions for all courses will be available at registration and are also printed on the map. The Brown course has a map exchange with each course printed on opposite sides of the same sheet.
Terrain: The terrain consists of open bog-land with numerous peat cuttings, and is moderately hilly. The ground is quite runnable, and there are some paths. There are a number of water filled holes not marked on the map. Care should be taken, especially by children, when running near water filled holes. No course is buggy friendly.
Start-times: 11:00 am – 1:00 pm.
Courses close: 3:00 pm.
Timing: SportIdent (SI) timing will be used. SI cards are available for hire (€2) at event registration. You must report to the finish officials even if you decide not to complete your course. If you fail to do this, the organizers have no way of knowing where you are. At the finish, please make sure you download your SI card
