CNOC are holding the first Mountain bike Orienteering event in this years league on the 15th of May.
Due to difficulties with permits from Coillte the event will be on the Curragh rather than in Trooperstown as previously advertised.
The courses will be fast and furious and hopefully fun. There are three courses to choose from:
Short 2km 8 controls (pin punches)
Medium 9km 16 controls
Long 18km 27 controls
The short is suitable for complete novices and has independent controls from other courses so people can try it out and decide if they want to try the medium or long course afterwards.
Starts are from the NCO's Mess in the Curragh Camp from 11:00 to 12:00.
Directions: The event will be signposted from the post office in the Curragh camp. There is a barrier that will lift if you drive up to it.
The Maps are A3 and will not be on waterproof paper so it would be advisable to bring a bag.
