LOC 2012, organised by AJAX, takes place on 30 Sep 2012 on 'Carraig Na Seabhac' ('Rock of the Hawks'). The competition area was to have been used for the Irish Championships last year, but in the end could not because of breeding Peregrine falcons and Merlins.
The terrain is a mixture of open mountain and dense thickets, with a wealth of rock features. The area is generally quite runnable but in places vegetation underfoot impedes progress. The map was surveyed in 2010/11 by Pat Healy.
The competiton area is bounded to the east by the Military road, to the south by the Glenmacnass waterfall, to the west by the Barnacullian ridge, and to the North by Carrigshouk mountain.
An LOC competition website will be setup before long.
