Earlier in the morning there is a round of the Dublin juvenile cross country league with the novice women racing over 4000 m (1200m lap + 2 x 1400m laps) starting at 1:45 PM. The novice men’s race is that 2:15 PM over 6000 M (400+4 x 1400 M).

Please meet at the venue 90 minutes before your race. As there are no dressing rooms arrive ready to race, spikes no doubt will be required (9mm), do not forget your Clonliffe club singlet!. Please note that the races take place on the opposite side of the motorway, Tymon Park North opposite the basketball arena. Do not therefore Park over at the traditional areas used i.e. the GAA clubs as you will have a 2 mile walk from there to the opposite side. The Dublin Board have advised that when parking do not park in the basketball arena car park but use the official South Dublin County Council car park.
