|Andrew Murphy||Feb 13 2020, 8:02pm||I'm happy to volunteer at this event if needed.|
As I am an IMRA noob I don't know what or if training is required so leave it to the race director to decide on an appropriate role.
|Robbie Williams||Feb 13 2020, 10:08pm||Will you mail please ..|
|Francis Kelly||Jun 13 2020, 10:45am||Good day everyone.|
Do we think think event will take place?
|Robbie Williams||Jun 13 2020, 8:40pm||I would love to tell you yes for sure but I can’t.|
Totally depends on government guidelines on June 29th
It will be a two week announcement but nothing we can do but wait
|Jenny Uí Shé||Jun 15 2020, 2:46pm||Thanks Robbie was just going to ask we will wait and see as you say|
|Peter Williams||Jun 24 2020, 1:04pm||Hi All,|
Can we enter this event now/is it going ahead on 19th July?
|Christopher Murnane||Jun 24 2020, 2:21pm||Hopefully goes ahead, would be great to get back racing|
|Robbie Williams||Jun 24 2020, 4:52pm||Will update on this in next 48hrs|
Getting ducks in row...
|Barry O'Neill||Jun 27 2020, 4:49pm||My fingers are poised......:)|
|Robbie Williams||Jun 28 2020, 10:25pm||Hello all...|
This race is open from 9am tomorrow morning.
The race is €25
Race includes Race Trucker hat & refreshments .
Limited spots (100)
|Robert Costello||Jun 28 2020, 11:43pm||Good stuff. Was this race open already? Appears to be 25 entered so only 75 left.|
|Lillian Deegan||Jun 29 2020, 12:16am||Nope, not yet Rob. Committee were asked if Munster could reserve a few spots for their RDs and more regular helpers. We had/ have no issue with the request.|
|Patrick Kissane||Jun 29 2020, 10:05am||Hi, I registered yesterday at 5.15pm so I assume it's a valid entry? Have a confirmation e-mail. Race Number 404.|
|Patrick Kissane||Jun 29 2020, 10:07am||Never mind, I see the "you are entered" on the race page now!|
|Barry O'Neill||Jun 29 2020, 5:53pm||With lug na coille on the same day for those of us racing for the first time this year will number collection be an issue?|
Also, thanks to everyone involved for getting things back up and running.
|Bojan Povsic||Jun 30 2020, 3:23pm||Hi guys! Is there a gpx file available for this route?|
|Kevin Synott||Jul 1 2020, 4:58pm||Hi!|
I missed the entry opening on Monday and I see it's full already.
Can I be put on the reserve if their is one please in case someone can't make it.
|Paul Gonnelly||Jul 6 2020, 8:14am||Hi there, will there be any more places available for this race?|
|Richard Nunan||Jul 6 2020, 8:52am||No the race is full - so Entries are closed.|
|Barry Crosse||Jul 6 2020, 10:25am||Hi Bojan|
Heres a link to my strava data from 2 years ago.
Hope this helps.
|Bojan Povsic||Jul 6 2020, 11:45pm||Thanx a mill Barry! Will use this weekend when I'd be exploring the route. I know it's trek race so you can almost choose way up but not familiar with these lands at all.|
See you at the race!
|Barry O'Neill||Jul 7 2020, 9:37am||Can someone confirm there won’t be an issue with collection of race numbers as we have two races on the same day.|
|John Murray||Jul 7 2020, 9:55am||Hi Barry,|
Committee meeting again this evening so we should know exactly what is happening with Race Number Collection then. I'll update this later this evening.
|Richard Nunan||Jul 7 2020, 9:59am||Barry, to answer your question - we have 4 sets of Numbers to insure if a Munster and a Leinster race occurs at the same time we dont have an issue.|
|Barry O'Neill||Jul 7 2020, 10:11am||Cool,|
|Cormac Wall||Jul 7 2020, 2:34pm||Hi gang,|
I have paid for a ticket and can no longer attend, is it possible to transfer my place to someone else?
|Robbie Williams||Jul 8 2020, 12:51pm||Hi Cormac |
Unfortunately as IMRA is volunteer managed, there is a no refund/no transfer policy
Hope you can get to make it
|Loretto O'Sullivan||Jul 10 2020, 9:24am||Hi. I’m wondering if I could get an early start for Carrantouhill Classic. Also - would anyone else be interested in an early start. I don’t want to go on my own if possible. |
|Michael Mangan||Jul 10 2020, 8:23pm||I'm planning to run some of the course as far as the top of the ladder, in the first half of tomorrow. If anyone in the area is interested, they are welcome to join me.|
|John Dillon||Jul 13 2020, 12:20pm||Hi folks, any advice on footwear for Sunday’s race? It’s my first time doing the course so I’m not sure what the surface will be like. Any advice greatly appreciated…|
|Walsh Rowan||Jul 13 2020, 5:56pm||Hi John, I'll be wearing a pair of X-Talons. Hopefully they'll keep me upright|
|John Dillon||Jul 13 2020, 6:37pm||Thanks Roman, I actually have a pair of x talons myself! They are the ones I hoped to wear. However because of their very thin sole I find that my feet get sore on a very rocky route. If you think they are ok that’s good enough for me! Thanks for your help|
|Walsh Rowan||Jul 13 2020, 7:57pm||You should try rolling out your feet, rocks shouldn't hurt that much through the sole. If you are ever curious about what others wear during these races pop on Strava and check out the segment leader boards. Most runners will show runners worn on the day.|
|John Dillon||Jul 13 2020, 8:15pm||Thanks Rowan. Might be no harm to roll out the feet for sure. I’ll do it as part of my training for the next few sessions and see if it’s effective. Thanks again for your help.|
|Walsh Rowan||Jul 13 2020, 8:21pm||Your very welcome and good luck on Sunday.|
|Robbie Williams||Jul 14 2020, 8:21pm||For All runners who got my ore race email |
A little typo regarding buff wearing ...
Up to the 200m it is to be worn , not 1km
|Walsh Rowan||Jul 15 2020, 12:13am||Hi Robbie, I didn't get the email and am registered. Could you please forward firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Robbie Williams||Jul 16 2020, 6:12pm||HI ALL|
WE WONT HAVE THE BUFFS AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE AS ORDER WAS DELAYED
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR HANDS ON SOMETHING TO COVER FACE AS ADVERTISED
YOU CANNOT ENTER THE REGISTRATION WITHOUT IT
|Patrick McGowan||Jul 17 2020, 1:38pm||Hi all, completely forgot the weekend this was on. Just wondering if there is any chance of entry at this late stage?|
|Buckley Tim||Jul 18 2020, 1:13pm||Patrick - I have an entry but can't run tomorrow. I don't know how a transfer works but you're welcome to it?|
|Paul Gonnelly||Jul 18 2020, 3:11pm||If Transfers are possible, I'd be interested also if anyone else has a spot|
|Lillian Deegan||Jul 18 2020, 3:27pm||Transfers within IMRA are not an option lads - sorry. |
We are a volunteer led organisation - the extra amt. of time required to facilitate transfers and the like is massive.
If you pull up the "Membership/Shop/Online Entries" drop down, you'll see specific mention being made on IMRA product purchases.
|Paul Gonnelly||Jul 18 2020, 3:38pm||No problem, thanks for letting me know, hope to make the next one|
|Eoin O'Shea||Jul 19 2020, 10:16pm||Brilliant event today. Thank you to all involved especially volunteers on the peaks!|

|Eoghan Meskell||Jul 20 2020, 1:12pm||Fantastic event yesterday, my first mountain race. Thoroughly enjoyed it, thanks to all volunteers who were very helpful and accommodating. Will results be posted in the coming days. Back to the low impact sport of rowing for awhile|
|simon duggan||Jul 21 2020, 1:33pm||Thanks to all involved for organising Sunday’s race. A really enjoyable day. The encouragement from the hikers was fantastic. Made the pain somewhat bearable.|
|Patrick McGowan||Jul 21 2020, 4:04pm||Thankyou for the offer Tim.|
Totally understand Lillian.
I was there a few hours after the race for a evening hike to see the comet. Lads I knew who did said it was fantastically run. And huge credit to all the runners there was not piece of litter to be found.
|Barry O'Neill||Jul 21 2020, 6:39pm||Second year running this. I absolutely love it.|
Thank you so much everyone for getting this show on the road. Big thumbs up!

|Jason Kehoe||Jul 26 2020, 12:07am||Race report now up. Thanks to Robbie and his massive crew who gave up their whole day, weekend and I'm sure countless additional hours to get the show back on the road. It was a highlight event and trip for my family and I. Next years plans sound fantastic. The quicker we can get back to the good old days the better, let's keep that in mind as we strive forward as an organisation.|
