Kilworth ("Lynch") army camp is adjacent to the M8 motorway. If travelling from the South, take the exit off the M8 at junction 14 and follow signs (R639) for Kilworth and Lynch army camp while if travelling from the North, take the exit off the M8 at junction 13 and follow signs for Kilworth and Lynch army camp (R639). Parking approximately 6km from junction 13. 

Parking, Assembly & Registration:
Parking is situated on a hard standing parking area on the left hand side as you drive into the ranges.  Please follow directions from officials and park tightly as requested.  The registration desk, SI-Download station & Junior Squad soup kitchen/cake sale will be in the building which is in the centre of the parking area.  You can collect rented SI cards here, make payment for late entries etc here.  NB All terrain other than the access road and parking area is considered out of bounds before you run.

Kilworth is a very exposed area especially at this time of year.  The long range forecast for Sunday is predicting rain/wind (hopefully that may change as the week progresses).  For this reason and with competitor safety in mind, it's almost certain that Cagoules/RainJackets will be required and this will be checked at the start.  Failure to have one may prevent you from being allowed out on your course.  A final decision will be made on the morning of the event and a notice will be displayed at registration/pre-start stating whether a Cagoule/RainJacket is obligatory.  All competitors are required to carry a whistle.

Start & Finish:
Both the start and finish are within 200m of the registration building. Control descriptions will be available at the start. A 3 minute call up will apply.

Course Closing:
All competitors are to report back to the Finish & SI-download station by 2:30pm, control collection will begin at this time.

Presentation of prizes will begin at approximately 2.00pm.

This event takes place on a military training facility. Along with all the normal safety precautions extra care is necessary in this area. If during the course of your run you encounter any suspicious item – please do not pick it up. Report the details back to the registration and it will be dealt with accordingly.
