Please register here (it's quicker than registering at the event)
This orienteering event is suitable for all ages and abilities; families with young children are welcome. If you are bringing a large group (e.g. scouts, school) please email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can print enough maps for you.
The event will be signposted on College road; this is the southern entrance to the park beside the M50, it’s not the entrance near the house and gardens. See the Irish Orienteering fixtures webpage for travel details.
Marlay park is a typical Dublin urban park with a mix of forested areas and open playing fields. There is a lakelands area and a network of woodland trails. Marlay House and gardens are at the northern end of the map. The map scale is 1:5,000, with 5m contour intervals.
Control descriptions are printed on the front of the map. There will be no loose control descriptions at the event. Maps are printed on hydrophyllic paper in polypockets.
Long Course: 4.5km

The short course is suitable for buggies and families. The long course is for runners.
