Route Description:
Long and Short courses available
Getting There:
Start location T 153 714. If driving from Dublin start point is best approached from Woodenbridge and/or Ballycoog. Location map added with direction shown from Woodenbridge. On R747 travelling south from hotel turn right at the petrol station beside river Aughrim. After c. 100m the road forks - take the left fork. You can go right and go via Ballycoog, its just longer. Road twists and turns for a few k before you reach a T junction. Turn left then take the next almost immediate right uphill. Race start is on the right a few k on. Start point has limited car parking so if people can carpool from Woodenbridge hotel that would be ideal. Hotel is good for food so would be recommended for post-race treats. GPS Coordinates Latitude: 52.781864 Longitude: -6.291916

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
