Deirdre Flynn-McGrathJul 29 2015, 4:40pmHello is there an early start for trail runs?
Brian O MurchuJul 29 2015, 4:54pmThere is no early start for this race, I hope this does not dissuade you from coming tonight
Karen DevenneyJul 29 2015, 10:14pmBusy busy busy night for a Trail race! Well done to Mikey on a great race and well done to all the runners
Results have been sent to Pol - but probably won't be online until Monday as he's galavanting round the wilds of Ballyhoura for the weekend. Lots of new people which is good to see and hopefully there won't be too many mistakes. If there are any issues with results, email Pol
That's it for me, definitely hanging up my Volunteering shoes in favour of my runners!
Andrew HanneyJul 29 2015, 11:19pmphoto upload doesn't want to work tonight!
James H CahillJul 29 2015, 11:25pmWell done Mikey and all your helpers on a well organised, fun, enjoyable race. I have never seen so much chocolate as did the rounds in Plucks afterwards! Particular thank you to Karen who didnt run in order to lend her expertise on laptop with the large number of new runners.
Brian O MurchuJul 29 2015, 11:39pmGreat race organisation by Mikey Fry, RD for the first time tonight!
Brendan LawlorJul 30 2015, 8:55amWell done Mikey and all your volunteers - very well organised race , lots of new people. Karen should get a special Volunteer of the Year T shirt - she lived on that laptop all season!
Jim FitzharrisJul 30 2015, 10:00amMany thanks to Mikey Fry and his trusty team of volunteers (especially Karen) for a great night out on the forest trails.

I really enjoyed my run.

Even the weather picked up very nicely!

I hope John Fitzgerald has recovered from his bad tumble and got the injuries sorted out.


Graham K. BusheJul 30 2015, 10:08amWell done Mikey and team. Great run and very enjoyable. Seemed to be a big turn out. I had been told the Trail League would be nice, without the steep ascents and open mountain rough terrain, and it was, but nobody told me how fast it was going to be!
Kevin O'RiordanJul 30 2015, 11:50pmHi guys, have published results for this event. There were some issues with an unexpected rush of new registrations on the night. In particular, I think we lost registration details for numbers 1530 and 1531. Any questions/issues, email me at kevin dot oriordan at imra dot ie

Andrew HanneyJul 31 2015, 10:50amWell done to Mikey on a well organized race. There were indeed a lot of new regs, and coupled with the fact we'd no safety pins, it took a bit longer to get numbers on people. Looked like a lot of happy faces at the end and that's what its all about.
Vivian O'GormanJul 31 2015, 10:40pmHi Folks,

Unfortunately John Fitzgeralds myimra is not working so he has asked me to put up this thank you note from him.

'I want to say a big and sincere thanks to everyone who helped me in Djouce last Wednesday. To the two runners, whose names I'm afraid I don't know,who helped me to the finish line.Denis Hogan,the First Aid Officier, who was complemented by the Plastic Surgeon in St.Vincents Hospital. To Derek,Santina,Gavan and Seamus and for all the texts and phone calls - a sincere thank you.

I got 6 stitches over my eye and a few bruises but I am well on the way back!!

It was a very well organised race and thanks to the Race Director Mikey Fry and all the volunteers' - John Fitzgerald
Denis HoganAug 2 2015, 1:15amHi Vivian , glad to hear John is well on the road to recovery. If you could pass on my regards to him I'd appreciate it. Thanks
Caitlín BentAug 2 2015, 2:09pmGlad to hear that John Fitz. is still standing. Hard to put a bad thing down:))
He just keeps bouncing back.
Andrew HanneyAug 2 2015, 11:05pmPhotos are now up.

Found at Djouce Trail last week - a blue headband type thing ("yRumble", "yFumble"?):

drop me a line on 086 262 1445 if yours, I should be at Glen of the Downs. If not claimed it may end up the RD gear where it'll slowly make its way from the top to the bottom.
