Anyone not in the queue by that stage will not be allowed enter the race. So please turn up in good time! It's likely to be muddy and slippy up on the hill, so grippy shoes are recommended. As we enter a new year, below is some useful information for the Winter/Spring League, and also for the rest of 2020. As this is one of the first races of the year, registration will be very busy handing out new numbers and assigning timing-chips. Please arrive early,registration will close at 10:30 to allow the volunteers get set up in Ticknock. If you have a chip from previous years, please bring it with you for reprogramming If you do not have a chip, one will be provided to you free of charge Your chip will and number will be yours for the entire 2020 race year. Please retain both for the year, they are your responsibility. Replacement number or chips will be charged at €5 (one punch from voucher card or can be purchased online. It is mandatory to carry or wear a windproof/waterproof jacket at all IMRA races. Failure to do so will result in disqualification from the race. Please make your number clearly visible on the front of your chest. Fix your timing chip on your shoe laces. Anywhere else and it will not register on the timing mat.

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
