Time says 1pm, That will be changed to 11am inline with the other South-East events.
|John J Barry||Apr 25 2019, 9:23am||Folks,|
a couple more volunteers would be greatly appreciated for Seefin.
John Kirwan, regarding: “Race Marking”, We will only mark a route from the White Standing Stone back towards the fence for the final climb to Seefin and could you also do summit Marshall where due to the fence we can't actually get to the summit so you will need to pick a turnaround spot close to the summit but on the left of the fence on the way up.
Parking for Seefin is on a public road so a couple of running volunteers would be great to just leave/enforce gaps in parks cars every 50 - 100 metres
A couple of running volunteers could also handle the 2km junior (Crohaun) course for me. I'm intending on letting them off at 10:30 so they will be well finished by 11 for the main race.
Early start for the senior race will also be 10:30. Please notify us if your taking this option.
Last year’s results will give you an idea on times
|Tony Sullivan||Apr 26 2019, 9:39am||Hi John, you can put me down to volunteer. I would like to run it also if possible but if not I can sit it out. I can arrive early on the day or do whatever needs doing just let me know when you do. Thanks.|
|Michael Foley||Apr 28 2019, 6:39pm||Hi John, I can do parking and run or not run if you need me for anything else.|
|John J Barry||Apr 30 2019, 11:53am||Michael - I have you as running volunteer and PARKING supervision |
Tony - Your down as running too and helping out at Registration
Be there for 9:30 to 9:45 to give me a hand with initial setting up would also be great
One more NON Running Volunteer for LAPTOP duties. I'm very familiar with the LAPTOP so I can provide some assistance especially after the race has started
Two or Three more running volunteers would be great to keep and eye on the kids as they run up and down Crohaun (2km) It be a grand warn up for yeah before Seefin half hour later
FOLKS: This route is a cracker. No fire road at all. A little bit of technical "green road" to begin with followed by peat based trail and open mountain..
|Tony Sullivan||Apr 30 2019, 12:20pm||No problem John I will see you there at 9:30.|
|Deirdre Cronin||May 3 2019, 7:14am||Hi, I'm available to help out on the day. I've no experience with any of the roles but I'll learn if needed.|
|John J Barry||May 6 2019, 9:46pm||Thanks Dierdre. Plenty of roles around registration and results gathering don't need specific skills bar a cool calm head.|
Any experienced laptop person willing to give a newbie a crash course before the race???
|David Power||May 7 2019, 5:40pm||Hi John - I can help with juniors. I intend on racing too. Question on race numbers: it's my first IMRA race of 2019, so I don't have a number yet. Do you have numbers on the day, or what do I need to do? David|
|John J Barry||May 8 2019, 11:36am||David,|
That great with the Juniors. Hopefully there will be a couple of parents that give a hand too.
You just need to act as sweeper on their 2km run. That will be 10:30 so you be well finished by 11 for the main event.
Regarding Numbers, we will have the numbers there and you just have to collect it.
|Deirdre O Gorman||May 8 2019, 2:07pm||Hi John, I’m hoping to run too but can help out with the juniors also|
|John J Barry||May 8 2019, 2:12pm||Deirdre,|
That's great. As I said to David it will not effect your involvement in the main event
Just ensure you register before you pop off to chase the youngsters
There is a mask about half way to the summit (~400m), maybe the younger ones should be turned there. But I'll let yeah make the call on that.
|John J Barry||May 11 2019, 10:18am||My mails are been rejected so I don't think my DB request got through.|
Can somebody send me the latest DB for tomorrow's event.
|John J Barry||May 12 2019, 4:36pm||Small but quality field had a lovely day out in the Comeragh Mountains where the conditions were perfect and views as usual stunning for the Comeraghs.|

|Conor O'Farrell||May 12 2019, 7:57pm||Hi All|

|Sam Scriven||May 12 2019, 9:24pm||Quality route on an absolutely beautiful day. Thanks a million to John and team of volunteers. Bring on the summer!|
|John J Barry||May 13 2019, 10:25am||David Nolan has a great little video but I think you need to be a member of Waterford Trail Runners to view it|
