From Kilternan, head in the direction of Enniskerry and take a left where the road forks at the Texaco garage(which is closed down at the momment). This takes you onto Monastery Road. Take another left immediately to get onto Ballyman Road. The entrance of the field is approximately 600m on the left and should be signposted.
(If coming from the M11, the nearest exit is Bray North and follow route: Old Connaucht Avenue, turn left for Thornhill Road, immediate right for Ballyman road).
Organisers Instructions:

Parking this year will be in a field belonging to a local landowner on the Ballyman Road as in previous years. There will be a charge of €3 per car for parking to cover the use of this field. The start area is approximately 2km uphill from the registration area so please allow plenty of time to get to the start. There is NO parking at the start. Registration will open at 6:00 and close at 7:15 sharp to allow for people to get to the start.

Fences may be electrified so be careful if crossing any.

All competitors, and particularly those who have not competed this year already, should READ the NEW REGISTRATION GUIDELINES.

Unless you intend using a race voucher to pay for the race, you will need to REGISTER ON-LINE for the event and for the year if this is your first race this year.

If you have bought vouchers on line and are collecting them please bring confirmation of payment.

Registration will close at 6PM the evening before the race to allow us print off the list of runners. If you want to run and have missed this you can use your or someone else voucher if they are willing. However you will need to be registered for the year( €10 paid on-line).

On the night you will be directed either to the 'Registered on-line' table to sign in or to the 'pay with voucher' table to have your card punched AND SIGN IN.

If this is your first race this year, you will collect your number which you KEEP for the year. Please bring confirmation of number and registration.

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
