A second Colour Series event on the beautiful Dunes of Portstewart. A lovely area to plan and I hope a great day’s sport for all runners. There have been some changes to the map (1:5000) with a large area of scrub now removed. The courses will all start well towards the centre of the map and on the banks of the Bann! A long walk from the beach parking, but worth it to give the white and yellow a nice path run back and the more technical courses full access to the best terrain Portstewart has to offer.

Parking on the beach – 200m from the entrance. The beach is owned by the National Trust and there is a £5 charge per car. There are toilets and a cafe at the entrance to the beach. Dogs must be kept on a lead.

Registration opens at 10.30am

Starts from 11.30 –1.00pm. Courses close at 3.00pm

If parents want split starts we will try to facilitate starts before 11.00am.

There will be a long walk to the start – allow up to 30 minutes. Parents may wish to accompany younger children along the route, part of which is marked by tapes along small dune paths.
