Route Description:

Route map for IMRA - SEL - Forth Mountain by Conor O'Farrell on plotaroute.com

The trail is technical with a couple of sharp ascents/descents and a long drag. The surface is very mixed with: bridle-path, bog, cart-track, fire-track, forest-track, mud, ponds, puddles, riverbed, rocks and roots - mostly on single-track and about 100m of tarmac - so not for the fainthearted...

Getting There:

Parking and race start is here

Organisers Instructions:

MANDATORY SHOWERPROOF JACKET MUST BE CARRIED/WORN DURING ALL IMRA EVENTS

Conditions: There will be a mixture of wet, grassy, muddy and rocky ground, so fell running or Grippy shoes is highly recommended. Most of the run will be sheltered with only the rear 1km being exposed.

Prizegiving Location:
Prizegiving will be at the finish line

Volunteers (Running)

Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running. Race directors need a minimum number of people available throughout the race to make the race work so non-running volunteers are preferable. While it can be helpful, volunteering in a volunteer and race capacity does not count towards qualifying for end of year prize
