Autumn League #5: Cork Showgrounds, Curraheen TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 18TH Event Info

posted 16 Sep 2018, 09:49 by Elaine Sheridan
The fifth event in our Autumn league will take place on Tuesday September 18th at the Cork Showgrounds in Curraheen.

With kind permissions from Munster Agricultural Society and UCC for the use of this area. The area isn't too technical but there are enough features to keep all orienteers concentrating - no room for small errors! You'll have to come along to sample the terrain for yourself.

COURSE INFO
******************
The long course starts with a reasonably difficult technical training exercise followed by a 4km course. When competitors are finished their course they're invited to attempt to complete the technically most difficult exercise in their own time afterwards.
The short course will consist of 2 short easy training exercises followed by a normal 2km course and will be buggy friendly.

STARTS
**********
Start anytime from 5pm to 6:30pm

DIRECTIONS
*****************
Take junction 2 off the N40 and follow signs for Curraheen village (do not take the exit for Curraheen Park the greyhound track!). The entrance to the competition area is 800m from the Marymount roundabout after 800m the orienteering event will be signposted on the right before you enter Curraheen village.

Hope you can join us.
