|John Corrigan||Jan 2 2020, 3:31pm||Hi, I've only joined today. Just wondering where do I pay for this race? Cant find it on the website.|
|Conor O'Farrell||Jan 2 2020, 3:48pm||Hi John|
Most events don't open for purchase until 2 weeks beforehand. There are exceptions to this, but that's the general rule.
|IAN MCILRAITH||Feb 13 2020, 8:31pm||Hi. Where do pay?|
|Mike Long||Feb 13 2020, 8:55pm||Hi Ian|

|IAN MCILRAITH||Feb 14 2020, 3:54pm||Hi|
Thks for the link. I joined but still don't see anywhere to pay for the race.
|John Condon||Feb 14 2020, 3:58pm||Sign in, go to shop, and bingo|
|Mike Long||Feb 15 2020, 12:45pm||Dear All|
The Trooperstown race is fast approaching. Thanks very much to all of you who have volunteered. Based on experience at Brockagh recently we need about 5 people on registration. Could we have a few more volunteers please? If you want to run also that is fine we will work around you.
Please note we will be having a junior race. It will start 10/15 minutes after the main race in the opposite direction to the main race, up through the forest, onto the tarmac road, down the fire road back to the start. Younger ones do 1 lap, under 14's 2 laps. Under 10's need to be accompanied.
Looking forward to the race
|Mark Willoughby||Feb 17 2020, 11:14am||Hey, Where is registration location for this race?|
|Mike Long||Feb 17 2020, 2:12pm||Registration in the Mountain Rescue Centre at Trooperstown No parking in the Centre Please use the regular car park past the Centre by the river|
|Mark Willoughby||Feb 17 2020, 2:15pm||thanks mike|
|Geraldine Clements||Feb 18 2020, 5:42pm||Hi. Just wondering if anyone is driving from the northside or city centre and might have space in their car ?|
|Mike Long||Feb 19 2020, 5:55pm||Dear All|
It would be great if we had 2 or 3 more volunteers for Sunday to help out with registration / parking. No issue these people running the race too if they wish
|Niall Markey||Feb 19 2020, 7:25pm||Niall Markey and Ann Lyons can help out .would both like to run though.|
|Mike Long||Feb 19 2020, 10:22pm||Hi Niall and Ann|
That would be really helpful thanks.
No issue with you running too.
Thanks also to John and Damien for signing up.
We should be good for volunteers now.
All the help is much appreciated.
|Mike Long||Feb 20 2020, 6:30pm||Dear All|
Hope to see many of you at Trooperstown. Weather looks OKish!
Please park in the regular Trooperstown car park and not in the Mountain Rescue Centre (where the registration will be)
Registration will open at 0915. It will close at 1015 for the early start and 1045 for the main race. As for Brockagh:
Step 1 register your chip or get a new one
Step 2 pick up your number if you dont have it yet
Step 3/4 register for race prepaid or with voucher
Hope that makes sense!
We will be checking jackets given the nature of the race and the weather
Looking forward to the race
|patrick cryan||Feb 21 2020, 11:56am||Hi,|
This will be my first (hopefully of many) IMRA race. I registered earlier this week, paid the annual membership fee and purchased €50 race vouchers. Is there anything else I need to do before Sunday? Can I use my race vouchers towards this race (not sure how the voucher system works). Want to avoid causing confusion for volunteers when I rock up (early) to sign on/ register without a clue!
Thanks in advance!
|Conor O'Farrell||Feb 21 2020, 12:00pm||Hi Patrick|
Yes, you can pick up your voucher at registration and use it for this race. If you have your email confirmation of payment (on your phone is fine)t, bring that along too as it might speed things up.
|patrick cryan||Feb 21 2020, 12:16pm||Brilliant,|
|Dave Docherty||Feb 21 2020, 1:02pm||Patrick Cryan. Don't forget the all important raincoat.|
MANDATORY SHOWERPROOF JACKET MUST BE CARRIED/WORN DURING ALL IMRA EVENTS
No jacket = no result. Bring the mandatory jacket and have it crossing the finish line.
|William Paul Fenwick||Feb 21 2020, 1:45pm||Hi, |
I'm a bit stuck for a lift for this one. So if anyone has any space in their car and is passing through South Dublin or the city center and is able to give me a lift, could you please let me know?
|Joe Lalor||Feb 21 2020, 3:18pm||Hi William, I am picking up another runner in Stillorgan at 9.30. If that suits tx me at O86 1O57O97|
|IAN MCILRAITH||Feb 21 2020, 4:16pm||I'm leaving from Terenure/Templeogue area of anyone wants a lift.|

|Liam Cannon||Feb 22 2020, 3:45pm||I'd like to run tomorrow, but it's looking like I'm a bit stuck for a lift at the moment. Living in Killiney (on the Shankill side). If anyone can offer a spin, please let me know. I'll bring a good stock of post-race goodies.|
|Mike Long||Feb 22 2020, 4:12pm||Liam|

|Grainne O'Brien||Feb 23 2020, 4:23pm||Great race today - thanks all for organising. I think I may have left my runners in the lower car park. Grey asics, a little mucky. If anyone picked them up - let me know, thanks|

|Henny Brandsma||Feb 23 2020, 5:49pm||Great to see so much happy and some tyred face's out on Troopestown today, always great to be part of the imra family and see the action up close while injured. Henny.|
|James H Cahill||Feb 23 2020, 6:34pm||Thanks Mike and all the volunteers for a great outing in the hills today.|
Very enjoyable. The combination of soup and 1kg of chocolate gave me a recovery sugar rush that convinced me I was invincible!
Alas the sugar levels have declined and it seems they are inversely proportional to muscle pain. My cunning plan of tapering for a year between races may not have been successful. Who knew?
But a great day out. Thank's all.
|Brendan Lawlor||Feb 23 2020, 6:54pm||Well done Mike,Catherine and team for a great run today.|
And thanks as ever to the Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue team for the use of their base for registration
|Grainne O'Brien||Feb 23 2020, 7:17pm||Brilliant - thanks Mike|

|Mary Collins||Feb 24 2020, 8:21am||Thanks Mike and all your volunteers for a very well organised and pleasant race event yesterday .|
|Cathal Phelan||Feb 24 2020, 8:50am||As a new IMRA member, I'd like to thank the volunteers who show great patience during registration and sign in because I don't know what I'm doing or what I should sign!|
The race itself was clearly marked and well marshalled. I'm sure the views were lovely too, I was just too busy staying alive to take them in!
Thanks to all
|Caitriona Nic Caba||Feb 24 2020, 9:22am||Hi Alister, |
Thank you! Will do, C
|Aisling Corkery||Feb 24 2020, 12:07pm||Thanks Mike and all the volunteers and friendly race competitors for making my son Oscar's first junior IMRA race such a fun event for him. He was so happy and excited for the whole day afterwards :o) I had a lovely day running round the hills too, so all in all it was a fab family day out!!|
|Gareth Dempsey||Feb 27 2020, 5:50pm||Hi |
Can anybody tell me where the results of the race are they dont seem to be up on the site at this moment in Time.
|Mike Long||Feb 27 2020, 6:38pm||Gareth |
Sorry! There was a problem with the app which takes data from the chip timers The results were recorded but it needs some work to extract them I know the lads are working on this and doing their best.
Again our apologies
|Jarlath Hynes||Mar 1 2020, 7:43pm||Good to see the results up.|
And well done to Fergie on his first place finish... :)
