|Brian McGuckin||Jan 22 2022, 1:54pm||I need more volunteers for next saturday |
a laptop operator is needed and maybe a baker to make some delicious cakes,
sign up now to avoid disappointment!!!!
|Theo Mooney||Jan 24 2022, 7:59am||Will 2 or 3 cakes do the job? I'll bring some along :) I'm not suitable for laptop operator but can bring some cakes :)|
|Brendan Lawlor||Jan 24 2022, 9:30am||Hi|
Is there any particular reason for the delay in opening entries for this race to 25th Jan ?
|Pól Ó Murchú||Jan 24 2022, 10:21am||Is there any particular reason to open it sooner... :-)|
Will open this evening at 18:00 ;-)
|Mikey Fry||Jan 24 2022, 11:49am||Just don’t let brendan in now he’s to panicky:))|
|Andrew Hanney||Jan 24 2022, 1:08pm||If you don't open it quick Brendan will write a Limerick about it.|
|Warren Swords||Jan 24 2022, 1:21pm||Andrew - Surely it's time for your annual reminder of how quickly the weather changes on Brockagh? |
|Brendan Lawlor||Jan 24 2022, 1:24pm||My request is was very polite|
Without sarcasm or ironic bite
So now Hanney and Fry
Heres a poke in your eye
You can both go and take a good....
The rhyme failed me at the last moment
|Andrew Hanney||Jan 24 2022, 2:19pm||Love it Brendan. @Warren I must get on that right way :) The moral of the story, run like Des to avoid the snow.|
|Andy McGeady||Jan 24 2022, 11:29pm||Novice question - what’s the course like compared to Howth last week?|
|Paul Smyth||Jan 25 2022, 9:25am||Is there some particular reason this event is €9 and all the others are €7?|
|Paul Smyth||Jan 25 2022, 9:27am||Never mind, just saw the €2 charge for the use of the facilities at Brockagh Res. Centre.|
|Warren Swords||Jan 25 2022, 10:01am||Andy - The course is on open mountain and a bit more muddy and not as rocky or solid underfoot as Howth.|
It's a classic hill race in that it's straight up and down again with not too many twists or turns. Once you hit the summit, it's pretty much all downhill. The descent is great fun, with a steep grassy section that can be slippery.
In terms of effort, if you did Howth, you won't have any trouble with Brockagh.
|Andy McGeady||Jan 25 2022, 11:01am||@Warren - nice one, much obliged. Howth was great fun and looking forward to Brockagh.|
|Benjamin Dubois||Jan 25 2022, 11:02am||Hi guys !|
I want to go to this race but i don't have car and I live in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4. Does anyone is able to bring me to the race ?
Sorry if my message disturbe.
|Lillian Deegan||Jan 26 2022, 8:32am||Morning Benjamin,|
We are in the process of getting the carpooling link back up for all events. In the meantime, we’ll try and get you sorted.
Members, if there is anyone who might be able to give this chap a lift to Laragh, might you post here.
|Benjamin Dubois||Jan 26 2022, 12:58pm||Thanks Lilian !|
I can move to Bray with the Dart or take any bus if it can help someone to pick-up me !
|Laura Flynn||Jan 26 2022, 1:03pm||Hi Benjamin, I’ll be leaving from Terenure at around 9.30 am if you can make your way to me if you don’t get an offer closer to home for you. You can contact me at email@example.com to make arrangements|
|Benjamin Dubois||Jan 27 2022, 10:04am||Great Thanks so much Laura ! |
I sent you an email yesterday. Mine is firstname.lastname@example.org
|Brian McGuckin||Jan 27 2022, 6:00pm||hi all|
I could do with a few more volunteers for this race particularly a shadow laptop operator, also the junior race will now start just after the main race, post refreshments in the Brockagh centre plus fabulous spot prizes.
EXTRA TICKETS FOR VOLUNTEERS!!
|Sarah O'Keeffe||Jan 28 2022, 11:03am||Hey Brian |
I can help out as a laptop operator if you're still looking.
I'll be there spectating anyway, so let me know if you need the help still.
|Brian McGuckin||Jan 28 2022, 11:13am||Hi Sarah,|
yes that would be great, see you tomorrow.
|Sarah O'Keeffe||Jan 28 2022, 12:09pm||Happy to help! |
What times suits? - feel free to drop me an email at email@example.com
|Angus Tyner||Jan 28 2022, 4:24pm||Conflicting info,|
We will have a mass start at 11:00 sharp. Juniors start time 10:50.
Junior/ short course will start after the main start
Which is correct?
|Brian McGuckin||Jan 28 2022, 5:40pm||Juniors will start after the main race, I tried to edit the details but it didn't seem to work.|
|Brendan Lawlor||Jan 29 2022, 1:12pm||Thanks to Brian, Bill and crew for a great race today.|
The return of the IMRA raffle was a particular highlight and with high falutin spot prizes from the National Gallery shop, it was good to see the four cans of Prazky beer included as well to stop us losing the run of ourselves !
Thanks Brian !
|Maeve O'Grady||Jan 29 2022, 1:31pm||Hello, I have photos from the summit if it is possible to open a tab so I can upload? The sun was quite bright so apologies if they are not super sharp. Well done to all the runners.|
|Sean Forsyth||Jan 29 2022, 2:45pm||Thanks to all the crew today, it was a great race.|
|Peter Bell||Jan 29 2022, 3:15pm||Big thanks Brian and crew for a great race. Perfect marking in that wind up top. Great to be able to finally meet up after for prizegiving and the Prazky Beers are going down nicely. Roll on Ticknock :)|
|Andrew Hanney||Jan 29 2022, 5:37pm||Well done Brian and co for a great race at Brockagh. So good to be able to have those post race chats again, was sorely missed.|
|Caoimhin MacMaolain||Jan 29 2022, 6:00pm||Thanks Brian and all volunteers for putting on a great race today. So good to experience all the normal things again that we used to take for granted. Loved it!|
|Laura Flynn||Jan 29 2022, 7:05pm||Another great day out. Well done and thanks to Brian and his crew. Don’t like to single people out but fair play to Maeve on the wind-swept summit and to Niamh, once again, on the flawless marking.|
Nice spot prizes too - I was impressed, and surprised I have to admit, to see the prizes from National Gallery were chosen before the Prazky beers !!
|James H Cahill||Jan 29 2022, 9:09pm||Thank you Brian and all the volunteers for a fun morning in the hills. The post run coffee and scones went down a treat......and personally I'm very pleased to see the raffle back, which increases my prize winning infinitely (zero to something is an infinite increase isn't it!) Great morning out, Thanks all.|
|Niamh O'Ceallaigh||Jan 30 2022, 8:47am||Here is a link to some shaky video footage from the race. Hope I captured everyone! Well done everyone!|
|Richard Moriarty||Jan 31 2022, 10:44am||Just to reiterate the thanks to everyone for a great morning of running, and a special thank you to say how much my young lad appreciated a prize in the Junior race. He hasn't stopped telling everyone about it over the weekend. You're all very kind|
|Roelie Smit||Jan 31 2022, 11:18am||Thanks to Brian and all his crew for a great morning out in the hills.|
|Conor Nolan||Jan 31 2022, 2:23pm||Well done Brain and team for great race, esp. Niamh for the re-marking after the night's gale (and for the movie).|
|Barry McEvoy||Feb 5 2022, 3:38am||Report up for this Race for anyone who likes to read the reports :)|
Thanks Brian and Volunteers was a great morning out!!
|Andrew Hanney||Feb 5 2022, 11:17am||That's a great read and insight to the battle at the front. I realise of course it probably took longer to write than the race for you :)|
