Route Description:
Organisers Instructions:
Please note it is not the same starting place as last Wednesday nights race but to traditional Seefingan starting point The race is 1000 metres of total ascent, and pretty much exactly 21 km. You'll run over 9 peaks in the course of the race. It takes me almost 4 hours, and I'm guessing the winning time will be somewhere between 2-2.5 hours. Biggest selling point? Virtually NO fire-road! But it is a long draining route, lots of lovely open mountain, but with energy sapping peaks and peat-hags (especially if wet), and some navigation skills will be needed (especially if poor visibility).· Start. Seefingan carpark· Name of race. West Dublin Peaks· Time. 11am, early start 10am· Mandatory kit to be decided, but will probably include jacket, food, drink, map, compass, space blanket· Run, the Start is as per Seefingan LL race.. · Must check-in at summits of - Seehan, Corrig, Seefingan, Seefin, Seefingan, Kippure, Seefingan, Corrig, Seehan· Otherwise, it's a non-marked open mountain race, and people can choose their own lines· Navigation skills needed, especially if there is any chance of poor visibility in the Seefingan/Kippure region of the race·

Volunteers (Running)

Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running. Race directors need a minimum number of people available throughout the race to make the race work so non-running volunteers are preferable. While it can be helpful, volunteering in a volunteer and race capacity does not count towards qualifying for end of year prize
