This Leinster League race takes place on very good trails. The course is boggy in a few places but otherwise very runnable and starts and finishes on fire road in Trooperstown Forest. One of the final descents is on scree.

There will be a short (junior) route: 4.5 km, ~ 150 m climb.

Take the M50 Southbound, get off at the Roundwood exit (Kilmacanogue) and follow the signs towards Laragh, drive through Annemoe and follow the bend left. 1.5km further down (keep the River Inchavore on your left), youll see a brown sign saying "Trooperstown", turn in here and follow the minor road to the car park at the river before the stone bridge.

There is limited parking at the prize-giving venue so please carpool to this race. Grid ref for parking: T 158 969.
