News Update!


16 May 2018

Emo Woods were looking resplendant today, in their abundant carpets of bluebells, though this may have added more challenge to the competitors, as it was sometimes more difficult to spot the earthbanks for the amount of bluebells covering them. Luckily the paths remained clear, so no need to trample through them. To see all the results, CLICK HERE to be transferred to the results page.

Congratulations to all the competitors and well done to all the winners!

Soo... lucky with the weather for today's Leinster Championships in Djouce Woods, Enniskerry. Two days earlier and we would have had to cancel the event due to the heavy snow. Instead we had bright sunshine all day and a good deal warmer temperatures. Though there was still some snow left to run through, as well as those mucky and wet trails and paths left after the thaw. Still everyone enjoyed the experience and well done to you all on tackling this steep and physical forest. CLICK HERE for to the Results page.
