Kevin BroughtonAug 7 2022, 10:05pmI’m going to have to un-volunteer for this unfortunately, can’t drive for the next week or two following todays injury (wouldn’t be able to go to a marshalling post either). I’ll keep trying to arrange a lift there in the meantime and could do car park duty or registration or something like that, but for now I’d say plan without me
Patricia RyanAug 8 2022, 10:49amDon't worry about it at all Kevin. Hope you recover soon.
Kevin BroughtonAug 8 2022, 12:11pmThanks Patricia

Brian MullinsAug 14 2022, 7:19pmMassive thanks to Trish and all the volunteers today on what was another seamless IC race. It was a total oven with the ground bone dry and before the start as people hid under furze bushes and blackthorn trees it was sure to have a price and we all paid!! A day that proves you are never too old to learn and also a day of firsts. The first first was stupidly taking the lead going up galtybeg (lesson no.1 learned!), I just woke Tim, Matt and Nick from their slumber and suddenly by the time Galtymor came I was in fourth! Fourth i thought, I’ll gladly take that in this weather. Back we went on the return trip towards the start and amazingly ended up back in third by the time we got to the top of Cush and I thought I was ok for third but that is where the second of the firsts comes in (first time I ever experienced the my legs don’t belong to me syndrome). Matt and Sean passed me as if I was stopped, Lesson learned no.2, don’t fly down galtybeg as you will pay! I paid! As I shuffled, as that was all it could be called, to the stile for the final descent, I was thinking of what was in the first aid kit that would make me forget the last 90mins of horror! Luckily Lisa was guarding the first aid kit so I never got to see what riches might have assisted me forgetting the whole experience, however being mildly delirious I did drink two cans of ice cold Fanta at the end, another first as this is not a good idea when you are a type 1 diabetic! A brilliant outing, great battles and racing. Congrats to Tim on winning the IC as he has been the stand out runner all year.
