Kilmac Running Festival - Women's Night Challenge
|Eadaoin Quinn||Oct 28 2021, 8:24pm||Hi I'm wondering have you considered opening this event to guests or non members? I've a couple of pals who love locally and are interested. Since it's introductory and raising money for women's refuge. I understand totally if not possible.|
|Pól Ó Murchú||Oct 28 2021, 8:46pm||Hi Eadaoin, The way IMRA is structured means that all runners or participants in our events must be members. It's how the organisation operates and we can only have insurance for our events on that basis. |
We have however reduced membership to €3 for the these events as there are only a few other events remaining for this year and we understand that joining this late in the year means new members won't really get the benefit of membership. This cost just about covers the bare minimum of costs incurred annually by the association eg. Insurance.
We would particularly welcome any newcomers so please do come along and bring your friends. You will not be disappointed and I am sure ye will be back again for more events next year!
|Eadaoin Quinn||Oct 28 2021, 8:58pm||That's perfect Pól thanks|
|Sarah Brady||Nov 10 2021, 9:43am||Hi Angela, just checking have you enough volunteers already for this or do you need more? Happy to help if there's still jobs!|
|Gerry McGuinness||Nov 10 2021, 11:04pm||Angela, |
Sorry to pull out as Helper on women's night challenge.
|Dace Kelly||Nov 17 2021, 8:01am||Hello, I am trying to sign up for the event but my banks (AIB & Revolut) keep on blocking the payments. Any tips how to obtain the entry? :D|
|Orla Cullen||Nov 17 2021, 10:47pm||Dace |
I had same issue. with payments .... I ended up paying with BOI first double check what number is associated with your Bank account mine was in format of +35386XXXXXXX etc
If yours is the same format drop the plus from front but include the 353
If thr number on you account doest have the international code to the front you should be able to add as is ...
took me a few trys to get the transaction to go thru
|Kathryn Barr||Nov 23 2021, 1:48pm||Hi, I wonder if anyone is driving from South Dublin who I might be able to get a lift with please? I live in UCD but could get a bus or cycle somewhere to meet you. It would be much appreciated, thanks!|
|Claire Cox||Nov 24 2021, 11:26am||Hey, I'm injured and can't race now, but I have added my name to the volunteer list - hope this is ok!|
|Santina Doherty||Nov 26 2021, 10:20am||Angela - wonderful idea to donate all proceeds from this evening to the Women's Refuge. I'm just spotting that now.|
|Megan Mc Donnell||Nov 26 2021, 11:24am||Hi - this will be my 1st IMRA run. I registered for the event and IMRA membership and got a confirmation email, but no details with race number etc. Will there be a registration table to pick it up at before the race?|
|Conor O'Farrell||Nov 26 2021, 11:48am||Hi Megan|
I will drop you an email now with your details.
|Trina Kane||Nov 26 2021, 12:18pm||Like Meghan above. Have registered, first IMRA Run. No details re race number. Will we get one on arrival? Thanks|
Looking forward to tonight
|Angela Flynn||Nov 26 2021, 12:32pm||Hi|
New members will get a race number and chip for their results -at registration
|Maike Jürgens||Nov 27 2021, 11:14am||Thanks a million Angela and team for organising. It was a tough chilly evening to be volunteering/marshalling for all us runners to have the craic. Hopefully, there’ll be a repeat event next year. :)|
|Sinéad Ievers||Nov 27 2021, 12:35pm||This was my first IMRA event. What a fabulous evening, great craic and ever so well organised. Thanks so much to all those who stood out in the cold guiding us round. A totally magical experience|
|Kathy Nolan||Nov 28 2021, 11:42am||Absolutely loved this event, thank you so much for organising. I was wondering would the trail of head torches have been visible from the n11 or the Glen and by any chance did anyone have someone on standby down there to take a pic?!|
Looking forward to hearing of any more night runs esp women only.
|Laura Flynn||Jan 14 2022, 9:06am||A donation of €890 has been made to Bray Womens Refuge from this event. Thank you to all the wonderful women who took part. For those first-timers doing a run in the dark in the mountains surrounded by like-minded people, we hope it was an uplifting experience.|
A huge thanks is due to the fabulous volunteers both IMRA and non-IMRA members, mainly friends of Angela Flynn, who helped out so cheerfully on a very cold November night.
Well done to you all.
