Summer Series 2022 - No 2 - Curragh (Lumville Cross)

 The next Summer Series event takes place this coming Tuesday evening, 17th May

Parking at the Defense Forces Sports Club, short walk to the start/finish (5 min). Link to Parking/Registration is here: https://goo.gl/maps/nnqr7PiaWfujSJpi8

There will be three courses on offer:

  •     Adventure: 1.9km, 9 controls, 10m climb, 1:5000 scale on A4 paper
  •     Medium: 4.6km, 12 controls, 75m climb, 1:10000 scale on A4 paper
  •     Long: 7.5km, 17 controls, 130m climb, 1:10000 scale on A4 paper

Starts from 6pm-7:20pm (sharp) - Courses close at 8:30pm

SIAC will be enabled - punching start and finish.

The adventure course is contained within the grassy area next to the R413 - there is no need to cross any busy roads. Suitable for off-road style buggies (mostly on grass).

The medium and long will both cross the R413 road (twice)  through the Curragh, close to Donnellys Hollow/Athgarvan - care should be taken, as although traffic volumes will be low and visibility is good, there will be a chance of meeting some vehicles. We may setup an optional crossing point if conditions warrant it.

Dogs welcome, but must be kept on a leash and controlled - the Curragh is full of sheep and lambs, and loose dogs have been shot in the past

Entries online where possible please to guarantee a map - limited entries on the night available (depending on map valumes)
