This Friday evening race in Dundrum opens our Tollymore Festival of Orienteering.
The weekend includes camping, NICS4 at Castlewellan and a BBQ on Saturday and fun score and other activities on Sunday.
There are three courses on offer at Dundrum from our planner George Savell, under the controller’s eye of Richard McCourt:
- Short / Junior – 2.7km, 105m
- Middle – 3.3km, 85m (capable MW14+ only)
- Long – 5.1km, 110m (MW18+ only)
Safety: Take care on all roads, use footpaths when possible. The short course is suitable for Juniors as it does not involve road crossings or areas where there is likely to concerns over vehicle traffic. Due to the nature of the longer courses, there are age restrictions in place.
Courses will close at 9pm when controls will start to be collected. If you are still out on the course at this time, stop your run and return to download.
As this is an urban event the usual “as the crow flies” distances have reduced relevance and have not been used. Instead, an optimum route has been estimated. Bear in mind your actual running distance may well exceed these estimates.
Parking: is in the public car park on Dundrum Road/Main Street near the North end of the village. Coming from Belfast it is on the left hand side immediately after the GAA car park and opposite Sacred Heart Church, BT33 0SA. There are no parking fees.
Registration and download: will be located in the car park. Everyone who starts must download after the race to enable a safety check.
Start and finish: The start is close to car park and registration, please take great care crossing the main road. The finish is about 700m from parking/download.
The map was recently produced by Stephen Gilmore and we extend our thanks for his untiring efforts.
