Parking is limited, so please carpool!

The race starts approx. 1km from the Glen Theatre. There is no parking available at the race start location, so treat this as the warm-up and cool-down. The route to the start is on public roads, so caution is needed.

Please do not attempt to park at the race start location. Registration will not be possible there, the road is narrow, and lorries and farm machinery need access.

Organisers Instructions:
This race is open to all and the cost is €5. There is no online pre-registration available. Registration will be open at 18:45 and close at 19:45, sharp, to give everyone time to get to the race start.

If you have already run an IMRA race this year, bring the race number given to you at that race as it is valid for the full year.

However, if this is your first IMRA race this year, you must purchase yearly IMRA membership for €10 per person. Please download the membership form, and fill it out beforehand to speed up registration (they will be available on the day too). You will then be given a race number that is used for other IMRA races this year.

Under IMRA rules for competitors safety, it is mandatory to bring and carry a jacket that is shower and wind proof for the entire race. Any competitor seen not carrying or wearing their jacket at any stage in the race will be disqualified. There are no exceptions to this rule!

Prizegiving Location:
Light refreshments will be available at the finish line.

Volunteers (Running)

Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running. Race directors need a minimum number of people available throughout the race to make the race work so non-running volunteers are preferable. While it can be helpful, volunteering in a volunteer and race capacity does not count towards qualifying for end of year prize
