LVO will host the second of the 2015 NI Colour Series which will count towards the Colours of Spring as well as the overall series. There will be a full range of courses to suit all abilities, novice and experienced alike. LVO WEEers are particularly welcome.

From the Balmoral roundabout on the M1, take the A55 Kennedy Way / Monagh Bypass for 1½ miles. Turn left onto the B38 Upper Springfield Rd, then in 2½ miles turn right onto the Divis Rd. Use the National Trust car park, which is on your left in ½ mile. Please park on the side of the road if the car park is full.

It is a 750m walk to the Assembly Area along the road directly opposite the car park. There will be a room there where you can leave clothing and personal belongings. The Start and Finish are nearby. We are grateful to the Divis Coffee Barn for allowing us to use their toilets – but no metal studs please! The Coffee Barn sells soup, sausage rolls, tray bakes, tea, coffee etc. so please support them if you can, especially as they are giving us a 10% discount. The NIOA Juniors fundraising team will not be selling food.

Final course details:

  • Brown 7.3K   Climb 240m
  • Blue 6.3K   Climb 220m
  • Green 4.6K  Climb 160m
  • Light Green 3.9K   Climb 90m
  • Long Orange 3.9K   Climb 90m
  • Orange 2.4K   Climb 60m
  • Yellow 1.7K   Climb 30m
  • White 1.4K   Climb 20m

The area, now managed by the National Trust, offers spectacular views over Belfast and beyond, but it is exposed mountain terrain so please come prepared and expect to get your feet wet on all courses. A whistle must be carried. A waterproof and windproof top is advised and may be compulsory depending on the weather.

Registration is from 11:00.  Starts are from 11:30 to 13:00.  Courses close at 15:00.

Entry fees are: Seniors £9 (£7 for members), Juniors £3 (same for members & non-members), Family £21 (£17 for members). The National Trust does not charge for admission.
