Both trial races will start at the Education Centre beside upper lake at Glendalough. They will follow the same trail that loops up Camaderry with younger runners having earlier turnaround points.
The U17 team trials will turn at a point where there is a tree on the right, opposite a tree felled with a splintered trunk.
The U20 team trials will turn where an old fence crosses the race route.
Course is mostly fast on good ground but the last kilometre to the turning points is much rougher and CARE should be taken on this descent.
