Event Description

The NI Sprint Championships will be on a new map of the North end of Newcastle, assembly in the car park at the North end of the town – opposite the Sl Donard Hotel.

Note: There is a Hill and Dale race in Donard Car Park – the Drinahilly race is the final race in the series – other end of the town from the orienteering. (To avoid confusion).

Course lengths are measured by calculated route choice and are as follows:

Course 1              Men’s Open                                       3.7k

Course 2              Women’s Open, M Vet                 3.0k

Course 3              M Supervet, W Vet                         2.5k

Course 4              M Ultravet, W Super/Ultra          2.1k

Course 5              M/W 16, Newcomers                     2.2k

Junior Course 1.1k

Course 5 was advertised as M/W 16- but involves crossing some areas that may have busy traffic, as a result any under 16s wishing to do this course may only do so with parental presence and permission on the night.  Parents shadowing a junior should complete their own run first.  Newcomers on Course 5 should be over 16.  A Junior course has been planned which keeps the children on or near the promenade – there will be a road crossing but it will have a marshal, this area may have some traffic but parents may shadow on this course before completing their own run.  Entries online may be corrected on the night at Registration.
