|Mike Jordan||Aug 28 2015, 9:00am||Hi Don|
Myself and Maike can be there from 10am to help out.
|Diarmuid O'Colmain||Aug 30 2015, 5:03pm||It's a long shot but....!|
Since the nav challenge race today I am missing a small piece of kit - it's a battery charger.
It is a device that you charge up from the mains and it then acts as a portable charger to carry with you on the hills for phone or other device.
The unit is black, about 6 or 7 cms long by 4 cms wide and 4 cms deep - approx.
If you found it please contact me at docolmain_gmail_com or on this forum.
|Brian O Murchu||Aug 30 2015, 5:14pm||Thanks to Mike and Maike for the carpool, photos and report up!|
|Don Short||Aug 30 2015, 5:16pm||Thank to all helpers and participants. A special thanks to the stalwarts who went back up Black hill to assist Colm.|
Diarmud no sign of the charger I'm afraid.
|James H Cahill||Aug 30 2015, 8:46pm||Thank you Don, Ruth, Derek and all the running volunteers for a great route and a great race.|

|Brendan Lawlor||Aug 30 2015, 9:28pm||O-IMRA the crazy compass wielding, map reading , route choice finding wing of IMRA were out in force today.|
Thank you to Don, Ruth, Derek and all others for a fine morning on the hills of West Wicklow. There's one race left in this great series and if you are tempted at all do come along and see what its like to run a race with a map in your hand ! Fine tea and treats at the finish too...
|Karen Devenney||Aug 30 2015, 10:19pm||Another great map-wielding day on the hills! Thanks to Don, Ruth, Derek & Co for the great course & lovely refreshments after...you even managed to get the weather gods on side so we could enjoy the beautiful views! No better way to spend a Sunday:-)|
|Greg Byrne||Aug 31 2015, 9:45am||This weeks Strava Fly-by of the race, including involuntary bonus loop. |
|James H Cahill||Sep 1 2015, 3:50pm||5 great reports on this navigation challenge - each one a great read.|
|Maike Jürgens||Sep 1 2015, 4:41pm||some nice reports :) and thanks for a nice course, after a massive portion of pasta and strawberries i thought it was really enjoyable - a good few lessons learned!|
|Colm Moran||Sep 2 2015, 11:26pm||A quick thank you to everyone that helped me down the mountain!|
I won't be able to name everyone, so thanks to all and in particular thanks to Diarmuid O'Colmain who first stopped and gathered more help, and to those who had a look at my ankle when we got back, and have advice.
I've never had such assistance with these injuries before. It was like my own personal ambulance.
Course looked great, sorry I didn't get to run it all!
|Angus Tyner||Sep 3 2015, 12:32am||Have put report up. Fortunately I didn't come off as bad as Colm and got back without assistance.|
|Brian Farren||Sep 14 2015, 6:17pm||Sorry to trouble, my first time using this. In Nav 2, short race, I was put down as an early starter in error. The time on my SI sheet is 44:42. How do I get this corrected?|
