Forth Mountain (Wexford)
|Conor Brady||Mar 1 2020, 3:02pm||Hi folks,|
Will there be a junior race at this one? If so, what distance?
|Niamh Kelly||Mar 1 2020, 5:01pm||Hi Conor, |
yes there will be a short course I will check what distance
For you and let you know.
|Stefan Hamilton||Mar 9 2020, 9:31pm||Hiya, quick important point about parking as the link for parking at the time of writing is pointing to last years event location which is a few kilometres from the start|
Parking will instead be at:
https://goo.gl/maps/jtdHEtDTXAZxsDi96 if someone can update on the main event page.
There is limited parking here so please car pool. There are also a few parking spaces about 2 km north of the start where you can park and walk down fire track to the start:
Also if updating, can you remove the maps from the map page for the event as they are also last years? Thanks
|Niamh Kelly||Mar 10 2020, 8:38am||Thanks, Stefan, |
We will help Paddy sort that out on the main page
|Shane O'Reilly||Jul 1 2020, 12:51pm||Hi Niamh, Paul,|
Just wondering if we can expect this race or some of the races in the SE league to kick off again, to complete a (presumably shorter) SE league for the year?
I wonder if racing in the SE will not be as restricted as in the Dublin/Wicklow region with permits and larger numbers.
I appreciate that racing is just kicking off again in the next 2 weeks so still early days!
|Niamh Kelly||Jul 1 2020, 2:08pm||Hi Shane, |
We are working on dates so we will know soon and hope to have 2 to 3 more races to finish off the year. we will update as soon as we can
|Shane O'Reilly||Jul 2 2020, 7:19am||Hi Niamh,|
Great, looking forward to it. Thanks for the feedback.
|Ellie Killeen||Jul 26 2020, 10:53am||Hi please can you tell me if there will be a junior race on Sunday? Thanks.|
|Niamh Kelly||Jul 27 2020, 3:54pm||Hi all, |
Paddy Rowe our race director really needs someone for first aid for the race to go ahead on Sunday, if anyone can help out that would really be appreciated
|Niamh Kelly||Jul 27 2020, 4:25pm||Ellie, |
Sorry for the late reply, unfortuently not, no short course on Sunday
