For registration take the right turn 'after' the EMO garage and REGISTRATION is at the Brockagh resource centre on your left. To save potential chaos with cars on narrow roads, please only drive up laneway after EMO to registration and not on one where race starts. After race both laneways can be used to exit. Alternative parking may be used at Lynhams pub (Prizegiving location) in Laragh.
Organisers Instructions:
REGISTRATION: Registration for this years race will be in Brockagh Resource Centre beside forest entrance(5mins walk from Start/Finish). If coming from Dublin direction, turn right AFTER the EMO garage in Laragh village and resource centre is on left. Registration is in a room at back of centre - Please do not use main doors but come round to the left of building and entrance door at the back of the building. Please respect the centres wishes by not wearing dirty footwear inside as they have new floors down. Toilet facilities are available off the registration room - again please use door from this room rather than going through main building as there are classes on at same time. Registration will close at 19:20 sharp to allow runners and laptop users to get to the Start. You must be in the queue before this time to allow time for registration. PARKING and CAR POOLING: There is parking at the Resource Centre and at Lynhams in Laragh (where the prizegiving will take place). Please note that parking is limited and Car-Pooling is essential, so please advertise any seats in your car on this site to save parking space.
RACE START AND FINISH: Grid ref T 140 968. When you come out of Resource Centre/Registration, turn left and jog the 5 mins or less to forest entrance.

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
