Summer League #3: Ballyannon Wood, Midleton Tuesday June 14th Event Info

Post date: Jun 08, 2022 11:29:2 PM

The third event in the CorkO Summer League will take place at Ballyannon Wood in Midleton on Tuesday June 14th

Ballyannon Wood is a beautiful mature mixed woodland located at the end of Dyers Road in Midleton on the Owenacurra Esturary. It is a relatively small wood with a very extensive network of paths. The similarity between a number of these paths often causes confusion and one junction in the centre of the wood has six such paths off it. It might be beneficial to have a compass on hand to aid navigation and relocation!



Long Course: 3.8km

Short Course: 2.2km (Buggy friendly albeit with some root ruts on a few of the paths)



Competitors can start any time between 5.30pm and 6:45pm.

Controls will be collected at 7:30pm

The start will be a 5 minute walk from parking/registration.
