Tymon.jpgTymon park is a typical Dublin urban park with a mix of forested areas and open playing fields. There are three groups of lakes and some hills. The dominant feature is the M50 motorway which bisects the park into two roughly equal halves. This event starts in Tymon Park West on Castletymon Road. The map scale is 1:10,000, with 5m contour intervals.
Long course: about 5Km
Short course: about 2.5km, suitable for buggies
