Organisers Instructions:
Since the talented writers among you aren’t getting any opportunity to write race reports at the moment, the committee has decided to run a writing competition with a €100 Great Outdoors voucher to the winner and a junior (Under 18) prize of an €50 Great Outdoors voucher. The title of the piece is “My Favourite IMRA Memory.” It will be limited to 400 words. It can be as short as you wish. While it should be broadly based on fact, some poetic licence will be allowed so this could be your chance to rewrite history and have yourself win the Irish Champs. The deadline for entries was Friday the 17th of April and the results announced on or before 5pm on Sunday the 19th of April.

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
