Niamh O'CeallaighApr 3 2017, 11:57amI hope you are all looking forward to the relay at Killiney Hill next week. The event is great fun and a good opportunity to get to know some other IMRA members.
Teams will be made up on the night. Encourage your friends and family to come out and take part in this worthwhile fundraiser for Special Olympics Ireland.

There are plenty of volunteers signed up now, so if you are free, just come along and take part.

Hazel ThompsonApr 6 2017, 2:22pmHi Niamh,
I see that only pre-registration is accepted for this race but it is not available in the "Purchase IMRA Products". Can you confirm?
John CondonApr 6 2017, 2:28pmI would presume that it will become available closer to the race date.
Andrew HanneyApr 6 2017, 5:47pmGood point. We won't have anyone running if they can't buy entry. Can somebody enable the product asap thanks? Looking forward to this, really enjoyed last years.
Pól Ó MurchúApr 8 2017, 11:40pmRegistration is open for this race now.

Fergal ConnollyApr 10 2017, 10:57amI have two friends (non members) who are interested in this race. Do they have to sign up for the year and pay €7 for this race or is there another option for first timers?
Niamh O'CeallaighApr 11 2017, 8:04amFergal, registration and pre entry is required. However they would be very welcome to come along on the evening and soak up the atmosphere and go for a run around the beautiful park.
There will be a bucket out for anyone wanting to make a further donation to Special Olympics Ireland.
Pól Ó MurchúApr 11 2017, 11:44amIt's April, sun is shining and the evenings are getting longer...that can only mean one thing...Wednesday evenings are made's IMRA time!

This Wednesday sees the first of the Wednesday evening races. A relay race with a twist, you don't know your team until a few minutes before the start. 3x 2.5km loops around Killiney Hill. It's a chance to go as fast as you can for your new found team mates. Great craic, a chance to meet and run with people you might not know and all in all a very social evening.

All funds from this race (Annual Membership) and race entries going towards charity. This years charity is Special Olympics Ireland a really great charity doing great work in the area of sports in Ireland. Please support this event! Looking forward to seeing you all Wednesday evening.

Oh and please preregister for the event.
James H CahillApr 12 2017, 10:35pmThank you Niamh and all your volunteers, marshals and helpers for a great fun event in Killiney this evening (and for the overdose of buns and biscuits post race!)
Pól Ó MurchúApr 12 2017, 11:31pmWell done to Niamh and all your volunteers on a very well run event tonight. Great night to be out even if it was a bit breezy at the start line. Great atmosphere and friendly buzz around tonight. The relay is always a great event. Really looking forward to a summer of racing now that Wednesdays are here again!
