Organisers Instructions:

Uphill only race finishing on Djouce. There will be an early start at 1900. If you normally have a finish time greater than 160% of the race winners you should start early.

JUNIOR COURSE - this will finish at the big tree, just where the route joins the Wicklow Way on the downhill section from Crone (O193123). Approx distance 3k, 230m climb. Return along the Wicklow Way.

Important Info

KIT REQUIREMENT - a light rainjacket (with hood) is required.

EARLY START - for safety reasons, the summit officials will return at 2030. If you are still racing at this time, you will be asked to turn back. However, an early start at 1900 will be available - those who normally finish in more than 160% of the winner's time are advised to take this option.

RETURN - for safety reasons, competitors must return along the Wicklow Way. This brings the total distance to over 12k.

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
