Munster AAI Juvenile EA, Novice & U/23 XC Champs 2016, Ballinahina, Co. Cork, Sun 23-Oct-2016, 11.30am.

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016


The Munster Juvenile Even Age, Novice & U/23 Cross Country Championships 2016 will be held in the Ballinahina area commencing at 11.30am on Sunday 23rd October. The three main routes to the venue will be signposted from Dunnes Stores Ballyvolane, the bottom of Dublin Hill and Carraignavar village. The venue is NOT the same as that of the recent County Novice XC; from Cork City, it’s about 3 miles short of Carrignavar.

There are 12 races on the cards for Sunday starting off with the Juveniles at 11.30am. The Novice Women and the Novice Men are the last events on the program so allow plenty of time for slippage either way! There’s plenty of parking inside the field – no parking on the main road!
