ULTRA Trail Ballyhoura
|Tom Fox||Jul 8 2021, 9:07pm||Hiya lads , was out around glenroe/darragh River walk last Sunday and was pretty overgrown on parts . If this is on the route for the night run as I think it is might be safer to get some of it strimmed..|
|Robbie Williams||Jul 8 2021, 9:27pm||Have the request put in already|
|Seán carey||Jul 16 2021, 3:16pm||Hi, Will there be water stations along the route? Also is there a map/gpx of the route? Thanks|
|Gerard Down||Jul 19 2021, 12:09am||Sean, there are some details about water and drop table on the marathon section of course on the Marathon Forum|
|Karl Richards||Jul 19 2021, 12:07pm||Looks like ye have an amazing weekend for the ultra. Could we know more about the water/drop bags for the ultra. Its going to be a hot one and i would like to plan what i need to bring down on friday. I looked on the marathon forum(both) but couldnt see anything. Maybe you could copy n paste here.|
|Gerard Down||Jul 19 2021, 9:40pm||Here is a copy an d paste from Marathon forum :|
Ian Conroy Jul 5 2021, 5:48pm Hi all, just a quick question - I was wondering will there be any refreshment points for this, the marathon distance? Just so I know how much water to carry along. Thanks, Ian
Robbie Williams Jul 5 2021, 9:08pm Yes Ian
For Triallist we recommend a drop bag on table
Ye will have a separate table at approx halfway point
|John O'Keeffe||Jul 20 2021, 12:40pm||Hi Lads,|
I am entered to run but have been nursing an injured calf. A short trot this morning confirmed that covering 60K on Saturday is not on.
Happy to come and help out if needed. Just added my name to the helper volunteer list.
|Eoghan Hughes||Jul 20 2021, 1:43pm||Is there anywhere around Kilfinane that it is possible to camp on the Friday night? I called the Camper van park and he doesn't take tents as he said his park is all tarmac. |
|Gordon Place||Jul 20 2021, 1:51pm||Hi Eoghan, Ballinacourty House campsite is about 20 mins away. Very nice and has a nice restaurant beside it (if open these days)|
|Karl Richards||Jul 20 2021, 3:17pm||Sorry for asking again about water, maybe the sun is making me thick. You mention there is a table at half way for the drop bag. |
I would really appreciate a bit of clarity, how many drop bags are we able to leave and what distance in to the 60km race are they? is there any water available or do we have to put water in drop bags? Are drop bags taken at registration?
Sorry for being think but after a similar run last weekend i am keen not to run out of water again
|Robbie Williams||Jul 20 2021, 5:58pm||Hi Lads |
We will have water based on weather
Don’t worry we won’t see ye stuck
If it is moderate temps we will have a station (manned or unmanned approx every 10km.
If it’s really hot, we will go with closer to every 5km.
|Robbie Williams||Jul 20 2021, 6:00pm||Drop Bag Sites|
Ultra has these drop bag areas:
Kilfinnane (18km approx)
Ballyorgan (39km approx )
|Kevin Boyd||Jul 22 2021, 7:17am||Are details going to be issued with regard to Cut-Off times.|
|Emma Hand||Jul 22 2021, 2:16pm||Just wondering when and where we drop our bags in for the 2 stations along the way in the ultra?|
|Robbie Williams||Jul 22 2021, 4:34pm||I will send you all email this eve|
|Karl Richards||Jul 25 2021, 3:16pm||A big thank you to Robbie and his team of volunteers. Another brilliant and well marked race route. As promised you kept us all well hydrated. It was a long hot day for all the racers and the volunteers. With out you all we couldn’t have races like these. Thank you all!!|
