The final event of the Dublin by Night series will be in Hollywood Forest in Co Wicklow (I know!) this Saturday 9th February and Dublin University Orienteers are running a Spring Series (colour) event at Three Rock on Sunday 10th.

Sport Ident timing will be used, “SI” cards will be available to rent.

Pre-registration is now open and we would ask all competitors who are thinking of coming to pre-register.

And best of all…… a pint in Tutty’s afterwards will give us ample opportunity to discuss our mistakes.


Three Rock details: Click here. Usual colour courses (Yellow, Orange, Light Green, Green, Blue, Brown). Start from Ticknock car park.  Note: Last start 12.30.

Help wanted: We will have a tent set up at Three Rock to help with beginners and promote the club: we will try to recruit some new members on the day, as DUO is a closed club and can’t take members from the general public.

Can you help with this? You can run and help, or just help. We’ll need helpers at the tent from about 10.30 to 2 o’clock. If you can help, please use the “Contact us” panel on the right to let us know how you can help.
