CorkO Relay Teams

Post date: Feb 29, 2020 9:29:59 PM

Orienteering is mostly an individual sport but there are events throughout the year were orienteers get to pool their navigational skills and combine their all terrain fitness levels to compete as a team. We've identified three unique and challenging relay races taking place in 2020 which are

- Irish Orienteering Relay Championships

- Wicklow Way Relay

- Beara Way Relay

We would love to have CorkO teams on the start line for these three relay races. You can find some further details on each of the races below.

If you are interested in ANY or ALL of these awesome relay races please let us know and if we have enough interest we will enter CorkO teams in all these events. 

Hope you can join team CorkO!

The Wicklow Way relay is a race from Kilmashogue to Shillelagh along the Wicklow Way.

Teams consisting of between 2 and 8 runners will run the Wicklow Way in Relay. There are eight stages, between 8km and 21km long.

The Beara Way Relay is a race for mixed teams of up to 8 people. Starting and finishing in Glengarriff, your team will race clockwise around the way-marked route, covering a total of 130km with 4000m climb.

The route itself is steeped in history and natural beauty. Athletes will pass through many of the beautiful towns and villages of Beara, and will experience a variety of terrain from quiet country roads to woodlands and open mountain.

This is a stunning new race on the Beara peninsula and could team CorkO be the inaugural winners of the Beara Way Relay?
