|Paul Kelly||Jun 21 2021, 10:48am||Hi Folks, with race day nearly 2 weeks away I was hoping I would be able to get a few running/ non running volunteers. Mainly a first-aider if some one would be available. In total I would need 3 non running volunteers and a first aider.|
Thanks in advance!
|Gaelan Elliffe||Jul 2 2021, 9:19am||Hi Paul,|
I can volunteer as a non runner however you need help.
|Paul Kelly||Jul 2 2021, 2:38pm||Hi Gaelan,|
Brilliant, can you go onto the event page and select one of the volunteer roles? Theres always something that needs doing.
|Brian Farren||Jul 3 2021, 12:35pm||HI. Is there an early start for this race?|
|Brian Smyth||Jul 3 2021, 2:25pm||How’s things Paul, |
I’m available to help out tomorrow. Won’t be running.
|Paul Kelly||Jul 3 2021, 6:41pm||Hi Brian Farren. There is no early start for the race tomorrow. Not to worry as we are there until every one is over the finish line.|

|Declan Gorman||Jul 4 2021, 12:34pm||Great morning.|
Thanks to the Volunteers and Marshals.
|John Greene||Jul 4 2021, 2:55pm||Thanks for a well organised race this morning... well worth spin down the empty Sunday motorway. It was hot and humid in the forest, i hope it wasn't just me who felt the conditions oppressive!|
|Alistair Hodgett||Jul 4 2021, 3:23pm||Thanks to RD and volunteers for today, a great course with a surprising amount of uphill!|
|Karl Richards||Jul 4 2021, 3:29pm||Thanks Paul Niamh and volunteers. Super route, well marked and wonderful to run through the beech trees. Fairly hot n humid too. Well done. Looking forward to Mt Leinster on the 17th!|
|Conor O'Farrell||Jul 4 2021, 4:56pm||Thanks Paul, Niamh and everyone involved in organising the race today. It was a fair sprint all the way around - (relatively)very fast!|
Any idea when the results will be up? ;-)
|Anthony Gillespie||Jul 4 2021, 5:04pm||Thanks to the race organisers and volunteers. Much appreciated. Wonderful route. Yes, it was hot hot hot in them woods, and there were some tricky trails and sneaky hills and drags.|
|Paul Kelly||Jul 4 2021, 5:31pm||Thanks to everyone for coming out today, great to see so many familiar faces and better to see some new ones too! Hope you enjoyed the course.|
Yep, the forest canopy can keep some heat in and make them sneaky hills all the more difficult.....just proves you don't need big hills to get the heart pumping.
Hope to see you in our lovely little race again next year.
A big thanks to those who volunteered today, without ye the races wouldn't be able to happen!
Thanks to Gaelan and Brian for the race start pics.
|Conor O'Farrell||Jul 4 2021, 5:43pm||Results are now up. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for any queries. I cannot guarantee that I will spot or respond to any queries on the forum.|
|Lilly Jones||Jul 4 2021, 6:15pm||Thanks to the marshel clearing flags that found Lilly and put her back on course. Some mountain running lessons learnt today. Mostly if your out in front and you haven't seen a flag in a while your probably going the wrong way! Thanks again. Simon.|
|Brian Furey||Jul 5 2021, 12:09pm||Thanks Paul and crew for the race. Lovely forestry setting.|
I did get a tick on my leg last night which I removed. Ye may want to check for them. It something we should all check for after every hill run anyways as they can cause Lyme disease
|James H Cahill||Jul 5 2021, 5:25pm||Thank you Paul and al the volunteers for a great morning out in Laois. Plenty of twists, turns, uphills ,downhills and I feel certain there were a few concentric circles. Who knew you could squeeze so much out of a small forestry. Great morning, thank you.|
