Mountain Meitheal Fundraiser
|Joe Lalor||Jul 30 2022, 6:08pm||Again this year "End of League Handicap Race" is Mountain Meithal Fundraiser.|
For those of you new to IMRA this handicap race is for those you have completed the summer league (to have been deemed as a league finisher you will need to have done 7 races). Non league finishers may also take part but will not be given a handicap time. Race starts at 7pm with the slower runners building up to to the faster runners at 7.30. Non league finishers will start at 7.30. Handicap times will not be calculated until after final league race.
This event, as usual, is being run as a fundraiser for Mountain Meitheal, the mountain path building team. Entry is online only at €10. If you cannot make the race you might consider buying an entry to support this cause which we all benefit from.
I am looking for a first aider volunteer and several marshall.
Start and finish at Pier Gates carpark. Route about 10km takes in Whites Hill and upper Ballinastoe. Short course available

Start times will be calculated after I have a completed list of entries. As a rule of thumb if you finished near the bottom of the league you will be off near 7, if towards the top you will be off after 7.30 with plenty of scope to catch the early starts. Non league runners will be started at the starters discretion but will not be eligible for a prize (first 3 M/F home). There will be a non competitive short course that will also suit juniors.|
|Joe Lalor||Yesterday, 7:35am||Thanks guys, I have enough volunteers now. Will be in touch tomorrow.|
Don't forget runners and non-running supports must register by 6pm today.
Start times will be published after then. Remember your start time is solely based on how you finished in Leinster League. There will be a few surprises.
|Joe Lalor||Yesterday, 7:34pm||Find below starting times for league finishers in the competitive race. A later post will have start times for everyone else. I realise that everyone who purchased an entry will not be running, it was easier to give everyone a time in advance. Thanks for your support.|
|Joe Lalor||Yesterday, 8:43pm||Find below start times for non league runners. Times start at 7.12 and are hoped to keep you behind similiar runners who completed the league and are running in the competitive race. Times are based on a rough drawl of your past form, in some cases based on only one race, so not to be taken too seriously. I realise that everyone who purchased an entry does not intended to run but it was easier to give everyone a time in advance. Thanks for your support.|
|Joe Lalor||Yesterday, 9:51pm||Forgot to mention there is a €2 charge per car for parking at Pier Gates. Please have exact change ready.|
|Brenda Malley||Yesterday, 10:02pm||Will there be a separate start for the short race, or will we start as planned and turn around early?|
|Joe Lalor||Yesterday, 10:19pm||Hi Brenda, All runners start at same place at time as previous post. Short/Juniors turn at marshall position 3. Short course just shy of 6km.|
|Alan McCarthy||Today, 11:13am||Hi just checking this is the correct car park? It says "Wicklow Way Car park at Luggala"|
|Brendan Lawlor||Today, 11:18am||Hi Alan|
Yes thats the one
|Alan McCarthy||Today, 11:29am||Great, many thanks Brendan|
|Caitlin Bent||Today, 2:34pm||Hi Joe, just wondering why my name is omitted on league completion list as I did 9 LL races this year. Some were short courses but I’ve checked with Conor who confirmed they counted. I’ve done my 2 non running helper stints also.|
Won’t get to race tonight but just wondering .
Good luck with the event.
|Joe Lalor||Today, 2:58pm||Hi Kate, it's a list of League finishers who have entered the MM race.|
|James Heggie||Today, 3:26pm||Just checking what time we need to get to|
Pier gates to register before your start time ? I am scheduled to start 7.12 so if I get there for 7pm is that earlier enough ?
|Caitlin Bent||Today, 3:45pm||Thanks Joe. I actually missed registration deadline last night. Will be with you in spirit though:)|
|Joe Lalor||Today, 3:57pm||That will be fine James.|
