Just putting this out there to see if there’s any interest.


So it’s over 5 years since the last one of these, time for another?


Location: I’m thinking Stocking lane again; close to city so convenient to many people; it’s a nice climb and there’s a natural gathering place at the top. Kilmashogue is another possibility.
Kilternan to Glencullen is another option, this has the added bonus of Johnny Fox’s at the top for refuelling..thoughts?

Timing: Last time there was manual timing with stopwatches etc. I’m too lazy for this myself. We could use Strava? Open to other ideas



Date: A weekend in March. Saturday 25th?Doesn’t clash with any sportives or races according to the CI calendar

Sounds good. I think the Vets might kick off the following day. Otherwise I'm in.

I'd be happy with 9am start. I guess the good thing about doing it on strava is you could set off anytime that morning if you really needed to.
