Curragh - Leinster League 12 - 2018

The twelfth and final event in this years Leinster League will take place this coming Sunday (9th) on the Curragh in Co. Kildare

The event registration and parking is based at the DFTC Sports Grounds, with the start and finish close by. Start times from 11:00 to 13:00, with all course closing at 15:00.

The location is marked on the google maps link below:

There's the full range of courses on offer - at the high end, they might seem a bit longer than usual, but the running is generally flat and good, and the distances reflect this.

Course Controls Length
Yellow 7 1.7 km
Orange 7 2.2 km
Red 11 3.9 km
Light Green 9 3.9 km
Green 14 6.1 km
Blue 20 8.5 km
Brown 26 11.9 km

Control descriptions are on the map for Yellow-Green, but there wasn't enough space on the Blue and Brown maps - they are available loose for every course anyways.

Entry fees are as follows:

* Child/Student/Unwaged/OAP €5 (€4 for CNOC members)
* Adult €8 (€7 for CNOC members)
* Family €20. (€15 for CNOC members)

If you need to hire an SI card, we also rent them for €2, to be returned at the finish. Lost cards cost €40 to replace!

If you're not a member of a club, and would like to join CNOC on the night, we're offering free membership for the first year (its only €7 a year per adult after that anyways - full rates on cnoc.ie)

If you are planning on bringing a group, it would be useful to contact us ahead of time, so we can ensure we print enough maps, etc.

In an effort to save on waste plastic, we'd encourage everyone to bring their own cups for refreshments afterwards. We'll also accept plastic map bags back for future re-use.

Hope to see you there!
