|Christopher Murnane||Feb 3 2020, 9:04pm||If a few of us can carpool and not require a seat on the bus is it possible to get an entry? Thanks Chris Murnane|
|Conor Coffey||Feb 5 2020, 9:50pm||I’m new to the imra and this is my first race with them, what is the story with getting race packs ? I got membership for the year too, do we get a membership card or something for entry into other races.|
Any info would be greatly appreciated
|John J Barry||Feb 6 2020, 10:12am||Conor,|
Source of information already available i.e.
and a news article
Title: "Would You Like To Run An IMRA Race In 2020?"
|Conor Coffey||Feb 6 2020, 6:18pm||Thanks John much appreciated|
|Denis carrigan||Feb 10 2020, 11:49am||Hi I,ve entered the half but can't make the race - not sure if anyone can take my entry.|
|Conor Coffey||Feb 11 2020, 5:47pm||What style jacket is except able for the race as this is my first race with IMRA?|
|Gordon Place||Feb 11 2020, 6:06pm||Hi Conor, I'd say Trench given the forecast, but Robbie has a separate post a couple down. Basically fully waterproof with taped seams|
Should be in the description if you are googling brand names, a few suggestions are also in other recent posts, like Inov8 Stormshell, OMM Kamleika, Columbia Outdry, Montane Minimus, Salomon Bonatti but it doesn't have to be an expensive brand name one as long as it's fully waterproof and taped seams.
|Conor Coffey||Feb 11 2020, 6:19pm||Thanks Gordon|
|Robbie Williams||Feb 11 2020, 7:29pm||Thanks Gordon |
Yep, either way it looks like a deluge
Please allow for v bad weather, and if you had a bad day and are moving very slowly
I’ll post update as needed.
Possibly adding hat, gloves and waterproof leggings to mandatory kit.
I’d always recommend a buff as you can use it to shield face too
|Paul Driscoll||Feb 11 2020, 8:45pm||Hi guys any idea when your going make a call if the race is going ahead or not travelling from wexford so will have to sort accommodation and that. Thanks|
|Robbie Williams||Feb 12 2020, 9:07am||The later we leave it the more accurate the forecast |
I know people will have to travel too
I think Thursday afternoon is the best last call
As it stands it will go ahead but we will up the mandatory gear as stated in previous thread
|Paul Driscoll||Feb 12 2020, 10:15am||Thanks Robbie|
|James Long||Feb 13 2020, 8:51am||Hi guys,|
Does anyone have a link to a running rain pants? I genuinely didn't know they existed, the only ones I can find are baggy hiking ones...
|Samuel Fox||Feb 13 2020, 9:18am||Waterproof trousers are fine....its is mainly for emergency purposes. Our legs will get soaking no matter what. Skinny, baggy, no problem.|
|Conor O'Farrell||Feb 13 2020, 10:29am||I have a pair similar to these. They are fairly light. I've never had to wear them in a race and I've experienced some fairly crappy days out in the hills. The roll up nice and compact to fit into a race vest/pack or the likes|
|Robbie Williams||Feb 13 2020, 11:11am||Any cheap rain pants will do|
I’m sure all outdoor store will have a cheap version
€10-€15 will cover it ,
If you are injured and it’s raining, these will keep body heat in
|Cyril Fogarty||Feb 13 2020, 7:22pm||Hi Robbie,|
Have to pull out of the half due to injury. One question, do I lose my entrance fee or can it go to towards the next half marathon race.
|Mick Hanney||Feb 16 2020, 1:53pm||Thanks to the immense team of volunteers for the event yesterday. Its difficult to organise a day long event in good weather, never mind the conditions that storm Denis through at us. I said to Robbie that his definition of mucky and very mucky is on another level to other people's definitions. Seriously muddy!|
One suggestion. As someone who went off route during the day - and yes I should have turned back sooner when marking wasn't apparent (lesson learned). I didn't have a map of the course to hand, except what was on the current half details (which was insufficient), it would be useful to link on the Half details the same Map pages as per the Ultra. If the map was mandatory that wouldn't be a bad thing either.
|Robbie Williams||Feb 16 2020, 7:21pm||Good idea Mick |
We will have both results up tomorrow lads
|Brian Flannelly||Feb 16 2020, 9:38pm||Results are now up for this event - any questions/queries on them, please email:|
brian <dot> flannelly <at> imra <dot> ie
|Maolaosa McHugh||Feb 17 2020, 6:28pm||Thanks to Robbie and all the volunteers for another great race in tough conditions!|
