|Paul Kelly||Jan 17 2020, 2:36pm||Hi All,|
With Oughval only a month away I'm putting a call out for some volunteers. At present it's only myself as RD so I'll need some core volunteers (laptop/first aid etc) and hopefully another 3 volunteers too if possible.
Thanks in advance
|Paul Kelly||Jan 30 2020, 1:18pm||Hi All,|
Just bumping this to see if I can muster up a few helpers.
|Sarah Sreenan||Feb 7 2020, 10:26am||Hi Paul|
Just wondering if there will be a junior race and if so what distance will it be?
|Paul Kelly||Feb 7 2020, 11:25am||Hi Sarah,|
Yes, there will be a junior race on the day. It'll be approx just over 4km. Have a look here for the junior course route.
|Sarah Sreenan||Feb 7 2020, 12:40pm||Thanks Paul|
|Paul Kelly||Feb 10 2020, 12:07pm||Hi Folks,|
With the race on this Sunday I'm hoping I can get one or two more helpers if possible. I especially need a first aider, as with out one the race can't go ahead, along with one or two more helpers.
Thanks in advance
|Shane O'Reilly||Feb 13 2020, 4:39pm||Hi Paul,|
I have put myself down as a volunteer. With only 7 races in the league and 5 to score, I would ideally like to run this. Is a running volunteer of help to you at this stage?
|Paul Kelly||Feb 13 2020, 6:43pm||Hi Shane,|
If you would like to be a running volunteer you are more than welcome, as there are always some pre race tasks that need to be done.
|Eoghan Whelan||Feb 14 2020, 10:16pm||Hi all,|
I can’t seem to figure out of to enter this race using the same entry as the postponed Bansha woods event.
|Paul Kelly||Feb 15 2020, 11:52am||Hi Eoghan,|
I believe that your entry is valid for the rescheduled date for Basha woods but if you can't make that date then something might be able to be done. Leave it with me and I'll ask for you and get back as soon as I know more.
|Paul Kelly||Feb 15 2020, 12:23pm||Hi Eoghan,|
A member of the committee just came back to me and said you are good to go if you want to transfer and run in Oughaval tomorrow. Just make yourself known to us at registration and we'll sort it out.
|Eoghan Whelan||Feb 15 2020, 1:46pm||Thanks Paul,|
That’s great, see you Sunday.
|Paul Kelly||Feb 15 2020, 2:15pm||Not a bother Eoghan. See you in the morning.|
|Paul Kelly||Feb 15 2020, 2:32pm||Hi all, |
Don't forget registration for Oughaval woods closes this evening at 6pm. After that its race vouchers only. Also don't forget to bring your own cups for Tea/Coffee afterwards.
Race reg is from 9.45 to 10.45 and race start at 11. Prize giving and some nibbles will be at the finish so hopefully the weather gods play ball.
See you all in the morning
|Conor O'Farrell||Feb 16 2020, 5:16pm||Great event today, with little or no impact from the weather. Thanks to Paul and his crew for a great event.|

|Mike Long||Feb 16 2020, 7:28pm||I also agree Great and interesting use of the area Well done all|
|Niamh Kelly||Feb 17 2020, 10:19am||Well done Paul on a great race and a thank you to all the volunteers who helped out yesterday .we got a nice break in the weather but it was bitter cold. I for one was very glad of the hot coffee. |
Well done to all our runners and hope to see you all at the next one in two weeks time at Tory hill
|Sarah Sreenan||Feb 17 2020, 4:37pm||Lovely race! Thanks to all the organisers and volunteers.|
|Conor O'Farrell||Feb 18 2020, 9:52am||Hi All|
If anyone took the wrong route on Sunday, it is IMRA etiquette to declare yourself as a DNF. I followed a group of 10 or 15 people (yes, fatal mistake of following the person in front and not looking for the markers) who missed a turn, cutting off 200 metres or so of the course. It's no big deal as it was a great event and we all had fun, but it's unfair on those who completed the full correct course.
Please email me if you wish to declare yourself as a DNF: firstname.lastname@example.org
