AJAX is delighted to be hosting a Come and Try It event in Marlay Park on the 9th August!  We look forward to seeing you all there.

Map: Maps are printed at a scale of 1:5,000 for all courses on A4 paper. Contour interval is 5 meters. There will be no loose control descriptions at the event. Either use the descriptions that are printed on the front of your map, or download them from the link below and print them yourself.

Registration and Entry Fees:  Registration will be in the car park just off College Road.  If you are new to orienteering, please let the organisers know and they will show you what to do. Please get in touch beforehand if you are bringing a large group so we can arrange maps and especially if you are bringing a bus.  Please pre-enter at:


Adult: €8

Entries close at 6pm on Saturday 8th August.  The entry is per map so please just enter one person if you are planning to run together with one map.

There will be a €2 surcharge for anyone not already a member of an orienteering club. The surcharge will be waived if the participant registers with Ajax Orienteers at the event. (Membership is free for the first year).
