Getting There:
Travelling South on the N11 from Dublin towards Wexford, take the exit for the Glenview Hotel (just after Horkans Garden Centre, just south of Kilmacanogue). Parking on the roadside on the eastern side, just off the N11. The Glenview Hotel is on the western side.
Organisers Instructions:
Race three of the Trail League.

Carpooling is ESSENTIAL as parking is limited. Angela and Paul have organised a car-pooling car park to the race start for race night. If possible, please drive to the car park beside the 1916 memorial in Kilmacanogue and pool from there as parking at the race start is tight. When heading south on the N11, come off for Kilmacanogue, cross the bridge - as if heading towards Pluck's - and the car park is on the right just before the roundabout on the R755. Angela and Paul will be directing cars here. It is a 2 minute drive from here to the start. Car park will close at 9.30. Please do not leave any valuables on view in your parked car.

Registration: 18:15-19:15.

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
