Autumn League #4: Doneraile Park, Doneraile SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 13TH Event Info

posted 10 Sep 2015, 15:59 by Elaine Sheridan   [ updated 11 Sep 2015, 14:27 ]
The 10th Annual Cliona Callanan Memorial Orienteering Event takes place on Sunday 13th of September, 2015, in the beautiful surrounds of Doneraile Park. With courses to suit all the family and no orienteering experience necessary, it's a great opportunity to sample this exciting sport at this very popular venue. You can run, jog or just stroll along any of the four courses on offer. All proceeds are in aid of the Cork Children's Leukaemia Association.

So we hope you will come along and take advantage of the opportunity to experience this magnificent setting and sample the wonderful parkland terrain. It is sure to be a fun day and with numerous picnic tables and a large children's playground it caters well for families and offers plenty of post run entertainment.

REGISTRATION
As we can no longer collect money inside the Park, Registration and Donations to the Leukaemia Association will be outside the usual Entrance gate. Please park first to avoid any traffic congestion at the gate.The overflow Parking area just inside the entrance gate on the left as you drive in, is probably the handiest place to park as it is very close to Registration. Starts/Finish/ Download are located this year, just north of this Overflow Park, beside the Lodge inside the majestic original entrance to the Park.
