I appreciate the Facebook group is unofficial but still...

|conor keane||Jan 22 2023, 8:12pm||Can I ask what the requirements to be considered for entry to this race? Any advice or guidance would be appreciated. Regards. Conor Keane|

I've copied the details from the 2019 race, to give you an idea of what Robbie is looking for as regards entry requirements.
Hope this helps,
Race numbers will be limited for safety reasons. Runners should have suitable experience over such terrain. Interested runners should send an email with suitable race history in high level technical terrain events to: robbie.williams at imra dot ie Entrants will be invited from this list only, will not be advertised on general forum. Race Directors decision is final. Route involves exposure to high altitude with disappearing paths, narrow ledges and sudden drops. Runners will have to have history in same. The route consists of Grade 1 & 2 scrambles. Carrauntohill Irish Championship would act as an entry level qualifier, but it will still be more technical than this. Runners will be picked with the most technical races being priority. Trail runs regardless of distance would not. It is strongly advised to recce the route.!!!! Mandatory Kit: Full waterproofs jacket & pants waterproof & taped seams. Mobile phone charged Foil blanket Whistle Map & Compass (GPS ALLOWED) Food & Drink Gloves Race Trackers will be provided and will be live."
