________________ P R E R A C E I N F O R M A T I O N _________________________
The penultimate round of this years Club League returns to the Kinnegad Circuit again, and will take place on Thrs 24th July, at 7pm.
This time we have a longer circuit, taking in the Col de Hightown twice, and then the race will finish in the opposite direction to the previous time we used the circuit with a slight uphill finish. Course details can be found below.
First group will be off at 7pm sharp, so please ensure you arrive in good time to sign on, and allow the marshaling team time enough to fit everyone into groups and ‘make the calculation’ as the man said, to time the gaps between each group.
Sign-On is at the rear of Scanlon’s Pub in Kinnegad village – and will be from 6:15pm.
Don’t forget the 2-euro sign-on fee! This is just to cover the cost of the prizes and the food after the race.
We will roll out then to the Starting point, which is just opposite the Kilucan Road Junction, as you leave Kinnegad on the old N4 Sligo Road.
Below are the course details:
Start line to start of 1st lap = 3km (just over)
Each full lap of circuit = 16.7km (x2 laps)
Last junction to finish = 1km (just under)
TOTAL = 37.4km
Starting from the Kilucan Rd junction, head out the old N4 towards Corelstown.
Turning left at the end of the road and past Coralstown Church. Dropping down after the Church and school to take the left turn onto the climb up to Hightown.
After the Hightown climb, we rejoin the original circuit by TURNING RIGHT at Hightown Cross and then straight all the way to the end of the bog road road, which brings you to the old N6 Galway Rd.
Turning left there, heading back towards Kinnegad, then left up the narrow road (CAUTION HERE!!!!!) which is the last left turn before coming to the old Apollo Garage.
At the top of that narrow road, we turn left out on to the old N4 road heading out again towards Corelstown to start the second lap.
At the end of the 2nd lap, on your 2nd approach to the junction onto the old N4 (photo below), you come out of this junction, turning RIGHT this time, to the finish approx 1km from there, in the direction of Kinnegad…
Don’t forget that EVERYONE MUST MARSHAL ONE RACE!!! There are only 2 races left, so if you are not on the Rota, but are taking part in the races, please contact the club email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) as you risk having your highest points deducted if you fail to marshal – anyone under 16 years old obviously cannot marshal, but if your parents can lend a hand on the night, this will be fine, but please let us know so that we aren’t short on the night.
Please also check with the Marshalling rota in case you are scheduled to marshal this race.
!! Don’t forget that a penalty applies if you haven’t marshalled a race !!
