This year we offer a ‘Frostbite’ with a difference. Instead of the tough complex terrain of the past we offer 3 short and fast Sprint type activities. The first session will be a ‘double’ header beginning at Gortatole OLC at 11.00 on Sunday 19th January with the second activity following on at Florence Court around 13.00. The third sprint will be at SHARE Centre, Lisnaskea on Sunday 2nd February, again 11.00.Continue reading

Map: A4 – Scale1:10000
Terrain notes: This is challenging and technical terrain of mainly open limestone grassland with bare limestone pavement and extensive areas of low visibility scrub hazel (which has spread significantly since first mapped). There are many contour features and limited tracks. There are both sheep and cattle all across the area. The Yellow course will have taped sections. In this exposed and difficult terrain parents may wish to shadow younger juniors after their own run. (NB This will make the junior non-competitive.) ‘Yellow’ maps will be available at registration.
FENCES. There are a large number of fences to be crossed on all courses and most have mapped crossing points to facilitate this. They will be indicated with tapes. One new fence has been over-printed with a purple line. This must only be crossed at a marked crossing point.
WHISTLES are compulsory and a NO CAG/NO GO rule may be enforced so come prepared.
We apologise – there will be No White course due to the difficulty of the terrain.
All colours from Yellow – Brown will be on offer.
