Reeks Skyline

Robbie WilliamsJun 24 2020, 9:59pmHello All..

With us putting plans into place behind the scenes, we are hoping that this race will open in a few days.

As you may be aware , the route is a challenging one indeed. I might add that, if we are going ahead, the route had changed slightly in order to not have the complexities of group bus travel. The new route will involve leave Cronins Yard, crossing the bridge, and ascending up past Lough Comeenapeasta and making straight for the grotto on Cruach Mor. This, as you might guess brings approx 900m of climbing in 3.5-4kms! The route continues as normal from there.

As with last year, please do not register for this race until you have got approval from race Director.

If interested, please send name, phone number and a list of races that have similar difficulty that you have completed already.

Thank you

Do we need a confirmation email from yourself to say we can enter this event?
I sent an email but got no reply. Just unsure if that’s a no.
Robbie WilliamsJun 29 2020, 5:21amJust mailed you Gary
Gordon PlaceJun 29 2020, 8:34amGreat news!

Cronins say they are fully booked out for pods and camping in case anyone was going to try
Avril ChallonerJun 29 2020, 8:45amWould love to be able to make it down again, this was one of my favorite races last year! Hopefully will make it next year :)

We stayed in a campsite next to Cronins yard last year (Carrauntoohil Eco Farm) if anyone is looking for more accommodation next to the start. Nice little set up, allowed our dog to stay and a 5 minute walk down to Cronins yard.

Gordon PlaceJun 29 2020, 10:37amThanks Avril & Richard
Jeff SwordsJun 29 2020, 11:13amRichard/Robbie,

Is the campsite also available for the splitters doing the classic the next day?
Brian SmythJun 29 2020, 12:34pmHi Robbie

I see in March of last year this was categorized as a NG race. Is this still the case?

It says on the event info that GPS is allowed.
Presume this is just for distance traveled , timing, recording of route for post-race analysis etc ; and it is not allowed as a route finding aid?

Apologies if this has been clarified somewhere already.

Many thanks
Robbie WilliamsJun 29 2020, 5:54pmGPS is allowed in this race
Brian SmythJun 30 2020, 9:39amOk thanks Robbie

Fabio BaltieriJun 30 2020, 10:44pmHi Robbie, sent you an email as well few days ago and did not hear back, just sent it again. Should we expect a reply and get in touch directly otherwise?

I got a google calendar reminder today because I had downloaded the calendar at the start of the year for 8:30am as race start. Just wanted to double check nothing had changed from what was on the event page.
