The summer series continues with a jaunt around Donadea, one of the nicest forest parks in Kildare. Acres of mature Coniferous plantations, areas with great runnability, a lake, and the odd patch of brambles. Only a few mind, and the courses have been planned to help you stay in the nice bits, and avoid the spikey bits. The Adventure course is entirely on paths, so no worries there!
Start times are from 18:30 to 19:30, and there are three courses available:
The courses are all essentially flat, as there are no major hills in the park.
Registration, Start and Finish are all based in the main carpark, signposted at the forest entrance only.
The forest entrance barrier will be raised, so you shouldn't need to pay to enter. Since the barrier will close automatically at 9pm, we will be *strictly* enforcing last starts at 7:30pm, course close at 8:30pm, otherwise we will be unable to take in all the controls in time.
