The 9th and final event in the 2019 Munster League will take place on Sunday December 15th at Kilworth Military Ranges

The terrain is made up of exposed open moorland surrounding Kilworth army camp, interspersed with many networks of earthwalls, gullies & depressions.  The terrain ranges from sheep cropped pasture, rough open fields, gorse & tussocky moorland.  There are some wet areas of bog on some of the longer courses but even after all the rain, the going is still fast with good visibility.

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.  CorkO are grateful to the Army & Ministry of Defence for allowing us permission to hold this event.
