Aileen FieldFeb 18 2020, 4:08pmIs there somewhere safe to lock up/put a bike at the heritage centre?
Mariusz LuczakFeb 18 2020, 9:12pmAileen, I think you can safely leave your bike inside. One of the volunteers will be in Heritage Centre at all time during the race.
Mags CoughlanFeb 27 2020, 3:20pmHi there - is it possible for dogs (on lead?) to do the Bweeng trail run this weekend?

Laura FlynnFeb 27 2020, 3:33pmFor safety reasons we cannot allow dogs Mags.
Mags CoughlanFeb 27 2020, 9:18pmOK - thanks!

Michael O sullivanFeb 29 2020, 8:01pmHey there. I can't seem to purchase entry?
I thought I could still do it till midnight or am I doing something wrong.
Ross orourkeFeb 29 2020, 8:24pmIs it still possible to entry the race? I can't find it in the shop
Róisín BurkeFeb 29 2020, 8:26pmHey, I am attempting to enter the race for tomorrow but i am getting an invalid message display when I click purchase race entry?
Is it full?

Michael O sullivanFeb 29 2020, 8:37pmI have purchased vouchers now so can I just turn up in the morning with proof instead.
Stephen O KeeffeFeb 29 2020, 8:40pmHi Roisin. I think the closing time was 6pm.

But if you want to enter i can give you one of my vouchers if thats allowed

I had 10 races picked out but i missed bansha so have a spare

Mariusz LuczakFeb 29 2020, 8:45pmYes, registration is closed now. The only remaining option is voucher.
Róisín BurkeFeb 29 2020, 8:47pmHey Stephen,

Oops! I am heading down with friends so would very much like to complete the race! Whats the story with vouchers can I buy one or use yours?
Mariusz LuczakFeb 29 2020, 8:47pmMichael, you can turn up with proof of purchasing voucher. I can see your name on vouchers list.
Michael O sullivanFeb 29 2020, 8:51pmThanks.
Róisín BurkeFeb 29 2020, 8:52pmHey Mariusz,

Am I okay to use Stephen's voucher? I have a race number?
I am only getting into moutain running so there is no value in me purchasing a voucher myself

Let me know,


Róisín BurkeFeb 29 2020, 8:52pmHey Mariusz,

Am I okay to use Stephen's voucher? I have a race number?
I am only getting into mountain running so there is no value in me purchasing a voucher myself

Let me know,


Stephen O KeeffeFeb 29 2020, 8:55pmRoisin you can buy a book of 10 in the online shop for €50
and then just turn up tomorrow with proof of purchase or
If its allowed you can use one of mine, i really dont mind.

If you have vouchers you can just turn up on day and register
they are handy.

Róisín BurkeFeb 29 2020, 8:57pmThanks Stephen, I had a look there, I am unlikely to get the benefit of a vouchers booklet so would appreciate if I could use yours if possible, not sure how that works, but fingers crossed its an option!

Stephen O KeeffeFeb 29 2020, 9:03pmYeah if its allowed you can use one of mine no problem Roisin
Róisín BurkeFeb 29 2020, 9:26pmHey Stephen, I was onto Bweeng Trail Blazers, I think I have the all clear to race under your voucher, what do I need tomorrow to sign up?

Thanks a lot for helping me out

Stephen O KeeffeFeb 29 2020, 9:32pmIm new to this but I think we just need to register at the same time and then they punch my voucher twice and thats it!!!

Ah your welcome Roisin.

Im aiming to be there at around 10 - 10.15.

Róisín BurkeFeb 29 2020, 9:34pmNice one!! Perfect, so my email is, if you send me a mail we can arrange to meet tomorrow,

Epic, thanks a lot!

Excited now, it's my second ever mountain race... I hope I win! (joking)
