Event Description

The second part of the the Spring Cup is on the wily open slopes of Slieve Meelmore.

Pre enter before Friday 6pm. Click on the link below.

We have Green, Orange and Yellow courses on offer. All of them have about an 800 metre walk from the car park to the start, and back again from the finish.

Yellow is great for families and children getting started on their own. It’s open mountain terrain – so prepare to get a bit mucky – unfortunately this isn’t suitable for pushchairs. There is a taped route on a tricky bit.

Orange is a step up – great for adult beginners – and families/juniors looking for their next challenge. Again there’s a taped route on a tricky bit.

Green is for more experienced orienteers, or maybe even adult beginners who want a good aul’ challenge. There is a MAP FLIP so remember to start with #1 and TURN OVER when you need to!

Dogs – as it’s lambing time, the landowners have asked for NO DOGS in the competition area, even on leads. We fully understand this, this is their livelihood and we want to respect the sheeps and the farmers.

On-lead in the car park is fine.

Parking is with our friends at Meelmore Lodge, and we have arranged a special parking rate of £3 per car. Make sure to tell them you’re orienteering when you go to pay for your parking.  Toilets and showers are available. We also highly recommend tea & buns for afters!

The second number is the CLIMB in metres (what goes up must come down!). The first number is the STRAIGHT LINE DISTANCE in kilometres. The actual distance you travel is likely to be longer, especially if you have a tendency to go wandering………
