24/03/2014 – Junior Trail Run Event Report

We decided to do a trail run somewhere new this week so Deputy’s Pass it was.  It was a stunning morning-sunny, warm and bright.  The loop is a 3.7km up and down.  The juniors did a great job of tackling the first hilly section.  We stopped at the top for the stunning views and a quick breather then off we went again enjoying the winding downhill back to the cark park.
Sean Lundy led the post run stretching session at the end.
Well done all-hope you enjoyed today’s run.  The younger members made a fabulous effort!  See you next time.

20/03/2014 – Junior Trail Run Directions

Directions & map for our junior trail run in Deputy’s Pass, Glenealy on Sunday March 23rd, are included below.

Take the N11 Southbound to Rathnew. Go into the village and at the roundabout at the Apple garage turn right towards Rathdrum.  Go along this road through Glenealy until you go under a railway bridge. The next turn LEFT is Deputy’s Pass.  400m on the left is the car park.  Please note there are no toilets here.

The loop is just under 4km. The track is well kept and wide in places, narrow in others. There is a steady climb on one side and a nice downhill on the other.
