You are more than welcome to come and run in the Little Sliabh Bui trail race.This is a small event the main purpose of which is to encourage members of our running club, Slaney Olympic AC to get involved in trail/mountain running.We are also longstanding members of IMRA and though this is not an IMRA run event IMRA are happy to promote it. Registration for the race can be done just before the race and the entry fee is 5 euro. If you are coming from Kilmallock (via Tipperary, Clonmel, Waterford, Enniscorthy, Ferns) it is about a two and a half hour journey. Directions to the start will be signposted from the N11 just north of Ferns. I hope this is of help, Feel free to phone us when you get to this side of the Atlantic,
Graham and Jane

As we say in America .... "have a nice day"
Go raibh maith agat .....

can you give directions if travelling from carlow to bunclody, clohamon
|Jane Porter||Mar 12 2009, 8:04am||Directions from Clohamon: Take the Ferns road. At the pub in Tombrack turn left, then a fairly quick right. After about 3 miles turn right at T junction. At next crossroads turn left. The start is about a mile up this road. Alternatively from Clohamon go straight to Ferns, take the N11 towards Dublin. take the L5070 Askamore road as described in the directions and follow the trail race signs - it is not much longer! Good luck -see you Sunday.|

I'll confirm upload shortly to the website so the taggers can get in there...
|Rene Borg||Mar 20 2009, 4:17pm||Photos now uploaded to IMRA website, the tagging has already begun!|
Please note that the numbers on the photos are specific to the race. You can see what runners which number belongs to on the race results (the pdf).
Some runners won't be in the system as this race was run as a non-IMRA event, so only previously registered IMRA runners will be "taggable".
