Charity Event in aid of the Cork Children’s Leukaemia Association - Doneraile Forest Park - Sunday 16th Sept (10am to 3pm)

One of the sports that I do from time to time is orienteering and the club that I am joined are holding a special charity event in Doneraile Forest Park next Sunday morning. I know that it is not running related but seeing as how it is for a good cause and it is a nice area for running, I decided to post the details here.

It is called the Cliona Callanan memorial event. Cliona was a member of Bishopstown Orienteering Club and sadly passed away about 2 years ago. The aim is to raise funds for the Cork Childrens Leukaemia Association.

You can see a poster for this event at this LINK

Doneraile Forest Park is a really nice area and a great place for running. There are plenty of paths on this old estate. If you have never tried orienteering before, you might try one of the easier courses (White or Yellow or Red if you are feeling brave!) and then go for a run around the grounds after the event. Don't worry, you won't need a compass!! Just follow the paths on the map and you can't go wrong ;o)

Directions for Doneraile....From Cork City, take the N20 North for Mallow and Limerick. 5 kms North of Mallow you will come to the small village of New Twopothouse. Take the right here (R581) for Doneraile. The Forest Park is located in Doneraile. Look for Red & White direction markers on the day.

There is a minimum entry fee but if you can give something extra on the day, that would be great.
