Dungarvan urban event

Waterford Orienteering club invite you to participate in an urban orienteering event in the town of Dungarvan, County Waterford on Sunday 20th November. We are working in partnership with Waterford Sports Partnership to develop orienteering in the county of Waterford.
There will 4 courses on a brand new map of scale 1:5,000. It is rare that we get to run an urban map unless we travel to Venice of Edinburgh.

Long course 6.9 km, 25 controls
Medium course 4.7 km, 20 controls
Short harder (i.e. no unaccompanied children as roads are crossed) 2.4 km, 12 controls
Short easy (no roads are crossed) 1.7 km, 9 controls
Starts between 10 and 12. Courses close at 1.
Parking is beside the pitch and putt course at grid reference X259924.
To access the parking, it is advisable to take the ring road around Dungarvan to the south/Cork roundabout and then take the the old Youghal road back into town. Turn right after the CBS school, past the main church on your right. Take a right turn immediately after the church. If you are coming from the Cork direction, take the first roundabout on your way into Dungarvan. Please avoid travelling through the main town as it will spoil your experience.
