|Niamh Kelly||Jan 4 2020, 1:33pm||Hi everyone, |
Helpers needed for Brockagh Burst, please help if you can I would like to have all helper roles filled in plenty of time for the race. So we can get down to making sure it is a great day for all
|Mary Collins||Jan 6 2020, 7:15pm||Hi Niamh. I have just put my name down as a helper. |
Of the roles not already filled , happy to help with race marking, demarking, marshalling, registration etc. Thanks for offering to be race director.
|Niamh Kelly||Jan 6 2020, 9:11pm||Thanks so much, Mary I will be in touch |
|Niamh Kelly||Jan 6 2020, 9:40pm||Hi everyone |
we will have Tea/ coffee and sambos for everyone after the race but if you have any leftover Biscuits or Cake from Christmas you are more than welcome to bring them along.
Thanks in advance
|Gordon Place||Jan 6 2020, 10:04pm||I'm about 10 selection boxes to get rid of, I'm sure they'll disappear quick enough...|
|Gordon Place||Jan 6 2020, 10:05pm||P.S. Is it bring your own cup?|
|Lillian Deegan||Jan 6 2020, 10:25pm||Thanks Gordon, that's great. |
On the cup Q - Yes, we will continue to encourage members to bring their own keep cup for use where possible. I am in the process of finalising the last few bits with the Brockagh Res. Ctr. on the food side of things. It would be great if everyone could bring their own cup for tea/ coffee/ water post race.
|Declan McDonagh||Jan 7 2020, 9:52am||Hi, new to IMRA and was wondering how do I purchase race vouchers ?|
|Lillian Deegan||Jan 7 2020, 10:01am||Welcome to IMRA Declan. |
On your query - Our webmaster is working on getting the voucher race day cards back in for purchase. Will you check in again in a few days - they'll be back then all going well.
|Niamh Kelly||Jan 8 2020, 10:23am||Declan, |
The race vouchers are available for purchase now in the membership/shop/online entries on the top of the page.
welcome to IMRA and see you out there
|Niamh Kelly||Jan 8 2020, 10:25am||Gordon, they will go down a treat I bet lol|
|David Fitzpatrick||Jan 8 2020, 11:24am||Hi Niamh, I looked at the link and don't see the voucher available for Brokagh, maybe just me??? Thanks.|
|Lillian Deegan||Jan 8 2020, 11:45am||David, the €50 voucher cards are defo up there in the shop link. |
Is there a chance you are looking for race day entries? If so, hang tight - Entries for Brockagh Burst will show in a few days. We usually open for online entries 2 weeks ahead of the smaller distance races.
|David Fitzpatrick||Jan 8 2020, 11:55am||Thanks Lillian. That's what I was after. I'll sit tight and check back in a few days.|
|Lillian Deegan||Jan 9 2020, 11:25pm||Hello everyone, |
I'm on with a note regarding the date of the Brockagh Burst race. In error, it was published as, to be held on Sat. Jan 25th. We have corrected the date to show Sunday Jan. 26th. All other race day particulars are correct. Access for IMRA to the Brockagh Res. Ctr. is better on the 26th compared to the day before. Apologies for any inconvience caused. Hopefully Sunday the 26th works ok for people.
|Niamh Kelly||Jan 15 2020, 10:12am||Hi Everyone, |
just putting another call out for a few more helpers, we expect it to be a busy morning so will gladly take as much help as we can get.
|Lillian Deegan||Jan 19 2020, 10:01am||Morning everyone, |
We're a week out from this race and a tad low with non-running helpers.
With sufficient running help accounted for, I'm on to see can we drum up a few more bodies to help as non running ppl.?
|Jenny Uí Shé||Jan 19 2020, 11:22am||Morning I can help before race if any good? |
|Jenny Uí Shé||Jan 19 2020, 11:23am||I don’t plan to run just I can’t stay around |
|Laura Flynn||Jan 19 2020, 1:00pm||I’ve just switched to non-run Lillian|
|Lillian Deegan||Jan 19 2020, 8:30pm||Laura, Claire and Joe - thanks for hopping in here. Niamh is finalising her helper roles at the mo and will bounce an email off to all volunteers in the next day or so.|
Jenny, thanks for the offer. It was route marshals we were short of - with more help in now, we are all good.
|David Fitzpatrick||Jan 21 2020, 9:48pm||Hi all, debut coming up on Sunday(!), and wanted to know what type of jacket must be worn? If anyone has any suggestions where to get one it would be much appreciated. Many thanks and see you Sunday.|
|John McCann||Jan 22 2020, 1:06am||Hi David, so many options depending on budget. Check out this thread https://www.imra.ie/forum/topic/id/4710|
|Niamh Kelly||Jan 24 2020, 5:32pm||Hello everyone, |
Just a quick update ahead of Sunday race, there have been some changes made to Juniors guidelines,
but on Sunday under 10 must be accompanied by an adult or parent to run
for more information https://www.imra.ie/forum/topic/id/5487
|NEIL O'RIORDAN||Jan 25 2020, 11:31am||Hi there,|
Tomorrow's race isn't listed in the online/individual entries - does that mean registration is closed? Thought I had until 6pm today to enter. Appreciate if anyone can advise.
|Gordon Place||Jan 25 2020, 11:58am||Hi Neil, it may be because the race date was originally today and then swapped to tomorrow.|
Just turn up to reg (as long as you've signed up for the year) and someone will sell you a punch of their voucher card for a fiver.
|Lillian Deegan||Jan 25 2020, 12:13pm||Issue sorted there now Neil and great to see your looking to hit the Brockagh jebels tomorrow :) |
While I'm on, I'm posting the following reminders for RD Niamh.
1. Online Reg. will close this evening at 18h. All people wishing to run need to have their 2020 membership sorted in advance of signing-in to race in the morning. Can you be sure you remember your race bib No. (Write it in your hand or something). This will help speed up sign in and the passing out of new year bib No's.
Once you collect your 2020 bib no. be sure to mind it for the rest of the year. Replacement No's cost €5 from the online shop or a punch from a voucher card.
2. Reg. will be open from 09:15 and will close at 10:30 sharp. The start is a short walk from the Reg. area.
3. Everyone running needs to sign in by writing their name and bib No. clearly. Juniors sign in with their parent/ guardian signing on their behalf.
4. All runners need to see the chip desk to have their timing chip linked to their name/ bib No.
5. We will have a €2 car park charge - pls try and have the money handy to help avoid traffic backlogs.
7. Juniors will be set off at 10:50 and the main race will kick off at 11am.
6. We will have tea/ coffee and sandwiches back at the Reg. area before prize giving time. If anyone has leftover Christmas treats, feel free to drop them at the Reg. area in the morning.
Finally, be sure to wrap up, it may be a tad chilly and sleat like. As with all IMRA events - running with a jacket is mandatory. Carry it or wear it - your choice, just be sure to have one with you.
Look forward to seeing great numbers above tomorrow.
|NEIL O'RIORDAN||Jan 25 2020, 8:35pm||Thanks Gordon and Lillian. All sorted and signed up now so see ye there tomorrow!|
|John Condon||Jan 26 2020, 2:17pm||Many thanks to Niamh and crew for a fantastic race. A lovely race to start the year with.|

|Laura Flynn||Jan 26 2020, 4:33pm||Thanks to all involved in making today’s race such a success, particular thanks is due to Niamh and Paul for making the journey up from Carlow. For those of you who don’t know, Niamh is the director of the South- East League but she generously offered to RD today even though it’s not on her home turf.|
|Andrew Hanney||Jan 26 2020, 5:27pm||Excellent event today, thanks to Niamh and volunteers. A great start to the league.|

|Conor Nolan||Jan 26 2020, 5:36pm||Many thanks to RD Niamh and team today, and to the route marshals for their encouragement.. |
Special thanks to Gordon for patching me up. The staff at the Swift were very complimentary about the field dressing - needed 6 stiches :(
|Conor O'Farrell||Jan 26 2020, 6:04pm||Thanks to Niamh and her band of merry volunteers for a great race today. |
Results are now up. Please send any related queries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Gordon Place||Jan 26 2020, 6:39pm||No problem Conor (Nolan), glad you are OK and hope it heals fast|
|Jeff Swords||Jan 26 2020, 6:43pm||You were a busy man Gordon. I needed a bath when I got home, but that was just too remove the dressing you applied to my hairy leg.|
|Florian Christoph||Jan 26 2020, 6:45pm||Many thanks to the volunteers and everyone for a great race + organisation. My first IMRA race - absolutely loved it!|
|Gordon Place||Jan 26 2020, 8:15pm||I draw the line at waxing Jeff|

A huge thank you to all my helpers for a job well done you were all fantastic.
|Pádraig Doyle||Jan 26 2020, 10:39pm||Thanks very much Niamh and crew for the race today. That was good craic.|
Conor, you should have gone straight to the swift clinic... you'd probably have got away with 3 stitches... That Gordon lad is a butcher :')
Hope it heals up quickly.
|Mark Foley76||Jan 27 2020, 12:21pm||Thanks to the organizers for yesterday , first rance of any sort for years alot of work to do but really enjoyed it.|
