Conor BradyMar 1 2020, 3:02pmHi folks,
Will there be a junior race at this one? If so, what distance?
Niamh KellyMar 1 2020, 5:01pmHi Conor,
yes there will be a short course I will check what distance
For you and let you know.

Stefan HamiltonMar 9 2020, 9:31pmHiya, 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: 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 KellyMar 10 2020, 8:38amThanks, Stefan,

We will help Paddy sort that out on the main page

Shane O'ReillyJul 1 2020, 12:51pmHi 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 KellyJul 1 2020, 2:08pmHi 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'ReillyJul 2 2020, 7:19amHi Niamh,

Great, looking forward to it. Thanks for the feedback.

Ellie KilleenJul 26 2020, 10:53amHi please can you tell me if there will be a junior race on Sunday? Thanks.
Niamh KellyJul 27 2020, 3:54pmHi 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

Thank you
Niamh KellyJul 27 2020, 4:25pmEllie,

Sorry for the late reply, unfortuently not, no short course on Sunday
