posted 23 Sept 2016, 06:48 by Elaine Sheridan
Join us as we take to the hills of the Sheep's Head Peninsula on Sunday 25th September for the fifth round of the 2016 Munster League.

This will be an orienteering race on open mountain terrain so if you have been orienteering for a while and have never experienced open mountain terrain, then this is the event for you!


This will be part of the Munster League 2016 series. 
Courses lengths as follows: 
Brown: 8.8km, 290m climb 
Blue: 6.5km 205m 
Green: 4.8km 140m 
Light Green: 3.5km 120m 
Red: 3.7km 145m 
Orange: 2.5km 80m

Start any time from 11am to 1pm

Registration will take place outside the "Tin Pub" in Ahakista. Start is ~1km walk from registration.

There are a limited number of parking space here but extra cars can park on the road leading to the church in Ahaskista as there are two parking areas there. 

Beginners are welcome - although this may not be the best area to try orienteering for the very first time.
