|Paul Twomey||Jul 25 2022, 8:28pm||Hey, is the Nagles 1/2 route for 2022 the same route as used in 2021? Thanks.|
|derek walsh||Jul 26 2022, 9:48am||The route will be the same as last years race Paul|
|Paul Twomey||Jul 26 2022, 4:26pm||Thanks Derek|
|Robbie Williams||Jul 28 2022, 4:57pm||This race will close this Saturday !!|
|derek walsh||Jul 29 2022, 5:35pm||Volunteers needed|
I'm looking for a few more Volunteers for the race. As of now I have 5 people including myself which is really not enough as last year I had more than this out on the course and felt that I could have done witha couple of more marshals out there. If you plan on helping please put your name down to do so. If you aren't running and haven't volunteered much now would be an ideal opportunity to do so. I don't need anymore volunteers that are racing also and to be fair all these people have been volunteering regularly and deserve to race. We have/are putting a lot of work into getting this race organized and for it to be compromised by a lack of people preparing to help out is quite annoying to be honest.
|derek walsh||Jul 29 2022, 5:50pm||Also there is a recce of the course tomorrow. Meet at race start/finish at 9am. Pace will be suitable for all runners.|
|Jamie saunders||Jul 30 2022, 7:26pm||Hi any late entries available?|
|derek walsh||Jul 31 2022, 1:40pm||No Jamie, sorry but we already extended it a week for people. You are welcome to come down and help if u wish or run with the sweepers at the back taking down markers.|
|Enda Collins||Jul 31 2022, 6:50pm||Hi Derek, I appreciate you have said entries are closed and that you extended it for an extra week. I’m new to IMRA events and would love to take part in this race if possible? Is it a definite no for entries on the day? Thanks|
|derek walsh||Jul 31 2022, 9:11pm||Yes Enda, the entry list is closed. Most longer races such as half marathons etc close a couple of weeks before the race. As previously stated I actually asked for this race's closing date to be extended an extra week till after the recce we did yesterday morning.|
|Enda Collins||Aug 1 2022, 9:11pm||Thanks for getting back to me Derek. Totally understand. I’ll make sure to book in earlier for the next event. Enjoy|
|Diarmuid Smith||Aug 2 2022, 1:12pm||Hi, this is my first event of the year. Will my number/chip be available on the day? Or do I need to get it posted out?|
|Deirdre O Gorman||Aug 2 2022, 1:24pm||@ Diarmuid, you can collect your number when you check in at registration on Sunday (we don't use chips in Munster). Just keep your number and bring it to any other races for the rest of this year.|
|Stephen O Keeffe||Aug 3 2022, 10:06pm||Just wondering if there is an early start option for this?|
|derek walsh||Aug 4 2022, 12:00pm||We haven't planned to have one Steven, however if a few runners feel they need one, I will try to accommodate them and let them start around 10am. Please note that I can't have all marshals in place for this start time.|
|Nic Baker||Aug 4 2022, 10:33pm||Hi. Im signed up for Nagles half on Sunday and wondered if there will be any water stops en route?|
|derek walsh||Aug 4 2022, 11:11pm||There will be an aid station with some water at approx mile 6. However please do not rely on this alone. You are expected to carry water/food to get you through the race.|
|derek walsh||Aug 5 2022, 10:09pm||Registration for race will be in Killavullen GAA. Please ensure you arrive in good time as it is about a km to the start of the race and the briefing will take place there at 10.45am sharp. After the race there are refreshments including a sandwich for every runner. Showers should be available back at the club after the race|
|derek walsh||Aug 6 2022, 8:54pm||As previously discussed I can now offer an early start for a few runners at 10am. Please be at registration for 9am and let it be known you want to go early. You times will go in after the 11am start runners results as is the norm.|
|Robert Cunningham||Aug 7 2022, 4:26pm||Hi Derek,|
Really enjoyed the race today, great course.
Well done you and all volunteers.
|Sam Hand||Aug 7 2022, 4:49pm||Thanks Derek and the team of volunteers for organising a great race today, really enjoyed it was a fun course.!|
|Iwona Kelleher||Aug 7 2022, 4:51pm||Beautiful course, superb markings, VIP limo drive to the start line and a Teddy bear serving pepsi at half point...what else do you need:) ...many thanks to organisers and the marshals.|
|Ian Synnott||Aug 7 2022, 5:10pm||Thanks to all for running a great event today. It was my first imra race and throughly enjoyed it. Although I somehow took the wrong course about 7k in and ran for over 1k before I realised I'd gone wrong. |
Tough sections on that course, the 18th to 20th kms were downhill but hardship. Running on rocks essentially. Great experience tho and I'll be back for more.
Thanks again to all.
|Kevin Broughton||Aug 7 2022, 5:18pm||Thanks a mil to the RD and all the volunteers today. The course was challenging but enjoyable, marking was brilliant (even I couldn’t go wrong). Thanks especially to Mariusz for a great job patching up my knee at the finish and for the advice to go to Mallow general (because I actually would have just driven home without that advice). Also thanks to the eagle eyed marshalls who spotted the wound as I was running past and made sure to check I was ok (Collette, the guy at previous station sorry I don’t know your name, and at the finish line). Absolutely top class people every one of you. Thanks as well to all the runners who checked I was ok when I went over, especially the lad who offered a hand up , appreciated that but my legs were non- functional for 30s after going over due to a massive cramp when I hit the deck. Thats me out for 2-3 weeks as I can’t bend the knee while the sutures do their work but counting my blessings I didn’t hit a tree or a rock. See you all again soon )|
|derek walsh||Aug 7 2022, 7:10pm||Thanks to all the runners who raced today, glad ye liked the course. Big thanks to everyone that helped over the last few weeks and all today's volunteers who did a fantastic job.|
|derek walsh||Aug 7 2022, 7:14pm||Kevin, fair play to you today. Considering how nasty the injury was you toughed it out and got the race done. Hope you make a speedy recovery and we see you back on the trails soon|
|Tom Mcloughlin||Aug 7 2022, 8:22pm||Hats off to Derek and his team! (Nagles half marathon hats!) Class course, really enjoyed the new sections!...made an already enjoyable course even better!... Great job and thanks for all the work that went into today.|
|Mags Hassett||Aug 7 2022, 8:50pm||Thank you Derek and all the volunteers for putting together a great course today. Really enjoyed it.|
