Route Description:
Same route as 2016. Follow a clockwise loop within Djouce Woods. The route features steep climbing and even steeper descending. The out-and-back section along the Wicklow Way and on Djouce Mountain will not have marking tape, but does have Wicklow Way markers and marshals. The rest of the course will be marked with the usual red & yellow tape. Start and finish is at the big junction approx 1 km down the fire road from the car park.
Getting There:
Turn off N11 at Kilmacanogue onto R755 for Glendalough. After 1.5km, take the right hand turn for the R760 - Enniskerry/ Powerscourt Waterfall road sign. After 1.3km take a sharp left hand turn for the L1036 - Sally Gap/ Roundwood road sign. Race parking on the right hand side after 1.5km at Long Hill/ Lower Djouce Woods car park. Please park as directed by marshals. IF CARPOOLING FROM Plucks Pub In Kilmac, PLEASE PARK AT THE FAR END OF THE CAR PARK, WE WANT TO LEAVE SPACE FOR THE PUB'S OTHER CUSTOMERS.

Please note, once you park, there is a walk of 1km down a fire road for registration/ the start line. Everyone running must SIGN IN on the night. Please write your name and race number clearly. This action allows us to account for everyone pre & post race. Also, only sign-in if you intend to run. Annual registration (€10) MUST be done online before 18:00hrs on Tuesday June 13th (if you have not raced yet this year). Race Route: The route will be the same as last year, see "route description".

Anyone finishing within 160% of the winning time will have their time adjusted. If you wish to take the early start, please make this known when you are signing-in. Juniors: There will be a junior race - instructions on start times will be given on the night. Juniors will have the option of going out with the main group at 19:30 or a few minutes later if they wish. I will confirm further on the night. Bring: A jacket - it's mandatory.

As the wood car park reaches capacity, people will be asked to park in the field. There will be a charge of 2 Euro for those that need to make use of this green field. **No parking on the road way** Car park marshals will direct you.

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
