at 1800. I’m a little short on volunteers some of the important roles still vacant please if you can volunteer
|Leo Mahon||Aug 18 2021, 8:49am||Thanks to all for volunteering I think we have enough for this Saturday I’m still hoping a laptop operator and first aider will come on board The weather forecast is not good so please bring rain gear|
|Warren Swords||Aug 21 2021, 4:55pm||Thanks to Leo and team for a great race today. Especially the summit marshal, hopefully she got down before the biblical rain.|
Really enjoyable race, lots of slop for a fun descent. Weather was pretty good for lug. Obviously no view at top but got a decent weather window for race. Shower on way down was lovely.
Very fast at front, 51 mins for the winner!
|Mick Hanney||Aug 21 2021, 5:28pm||Echo that.|
Thanks Leo and team, particularly Alan and Hannah for the marking, which made it a lot easier for those unfamiliar with the route. Fair play to Hannah for summit marshalling; Lug in heavy showers is singularly exposed to the weather. Hope you stayed warm and dry.
Route offers a bit of everything and today with the extra wet and slop it was all the more fun on the downhill. The uphill, not so much :-(
|James H Cahill||Aug 21 2021, 9:08pm||Thank you Leo and all the volunteers for today. Especially those risking hypothermia atop Lug or marking (AKA Hannah and Alan). Great day out. Thank you all|
|Conor Nolan||Aug 21 2021, 10:17pm||Thanks to Leo and the race team - especially the "outfield' players - for today's race. As it was my first go at this event I was very thankful for the marking off the summit! Looking forward to next year's already - especially if it's dry.|
|Mick Hanney||Aug 22 2021, 9:41pm||Wow, fab winning time by James, one of the fastest Lug times on listed History. Double wow, Isobel was first woman home in a time that appears to have broken all records on Lug? Great running guys.|
It was great to see such a well attended, and fast-paced race, ahead of the rest of us :-)
|Leo Mahon||Aug 23 2021, 8:03am||It was indeed great running by James and Isobel if the weather conditions were better we could have seen |
both records go not withstanding Isobel’s fantastic win i
In the Seven Sisters still in her legs
IMRA history makes great reading Gerry Brady’s report on Lugnacoille 2004 especially the last sentence
|Mick Hanney||Aug 23 2021, 10:11am||Thanks for pointing out the 2004 event Leo. The History feature on IMRA events doesn't seem to show events in the distant past.|
Beth McCluskey's time of 1:00:12 that year has stood the test of time.
And John Lenihan and John Brooks both under 50 mins !
|Warren Swords||Aug 23 2021, 10:40am||Seriously impressive time by James Kevan given the ground conditions. |
2004 Race report that Leo mentioned.
Five runners under 51 minutes, 11 under 55 minutes that year
|Barry McEvoy||Aug 23 2021, 12:35pm||That race is unbelievable. What a standard. Something to aim for big time going into winter training.|
Maybe next year we can close the gap!!
|Gavan Doherty||Aug 23 2021, 4:39pm||Thanks Leo & crew for holding the bad weather off & putting on a great race. A few photos added.|
One of the last few races that hasn't had to change route in the last 30+ years, gives a solid marker of progress (or degeneration!).
|Roelie Smit||Aug 23 2021, 6:57pm||I have a brown long sleeve top that was left hanging on a bush after the race if anyone wants to claim it.|
