Orienteering is a sport for all ages - and it's returning to the streets of Killarney this Sunday - promising fun as participants try to solve the clues!

Kerry Orienteering will host the festive street event, their second such event after the success of the summer meeting encouraged them to create a similar format as their traditional pre-Christmas outing.

Over 200 people took part in the summer competition and the club regularly attracts over 100 participants to their Sunday morning races in the National Park.

Three different courses are on offer to suit all abilities including family groups. It is being billed as a ‘Come and Try It’ style event so newcomers are particularly welcome.

“You could push a buggy on the easier course,” organiser Brendan O’Brien told the Killarney Advertiser.

“We are using a new section of the map, starting from the library car park. We will take people up by Fitzgerald Stadium. We don’t want to be in the town centre with too many people as others are trying to do their Christmas shopping.”

Participants can enter on the day or pre-enter at www.orienteering.ie/fixtures/killarney-5/.
