Annual Registration for 2018 will only be available online - there will be no cash registration available at any IMRA races in 2018. This includes all Munster, Southeast and Trial races

Payment may be made by either registering online ahead of event and paying the €7/€5 entry fee or using a race voucher on the day. Any 2016/2017 race vouchers with races remaining can be carried forward for use in 2018.

Race registration will close the day before the race to facilitate getting list of entrants over to race directors in time. As usual vouchers can be used to purchase multiple entries to facilitate registering for children, friends etc.

Runners will be required to sign in either as a preregistered runner or a voucher runner - further details on the new procedures and new guidelines will be sent to Race Directors in advance of races.

Runners will also be responsible for their own numbers at the end of the race and will be required to keep them and bring them with them for next race.

Mandatory kit for this race requires all runners to carry or wear a jacket. Failure to do so will result is disqualification

Volunteers (Running)

Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running. Race directors need a minimum number of people available throughout the race to make the race work so non-running volunteers are preferable. While it can be helpful, volunteering in a volunteer and race capacity does not count towards qualifying for end of year prize
