Gaelan ElliffeSep 4 2022, 9:30pmHi,

I'm looking forward to this one.

May I ask if the 2022-09-23 is the correct closing time for this race?
Robert CunninghamSep 13 2022, 2:26pmVOLUNTEERS NEEDED for the race please.
Roelie SmitSep 18 2022, 9:04pmHi Rob
Will drop bags be returned to the finish line or disposed of. I.e. no clothes in drop bags, only perishables that will be thrown away afterwards?
Can't remember whether this is a chip timed event. Is it?
Thanks and looking forward to the run.
Robert CunninghamSep 18 2022, 10:32pmRoelie, drop bags will be returned to the community centre but that will be when the last runner has gone by the last drop bag area so it may be a wait. Don't leave any valuables in these bags. Both drop bag areas will be next to a road so I will include a location pin in the email I send runners later in the week if anyone wants to collect their own bags.
Robert CunninghamSep 19 2022, 10:07amNo, it's not chipped.

Gerard DownSep 26 2022, 3:41pmMy thanks also for Aherlow 50 KM and a question if I may ? Will this race and the Ballyhoura 60 Km results be listed on the ITRA site ? Last years Ballyhoura 60 Km is showing on the ITRA site as a result so it will rank in a runners ITRA rating which may be useful for future race enteries. So I amm wondering if this years Ballyhoura and Aherlow 50 Km will show up or if runners should lsit these races themselves ?
