|John J Barry||May 13 2019, 10:02am||CARRAUNTOOHILL: Saturday 1 June, 2019|
This is the Irish Championship race (steeped in Irish mountain running history) i.e. part of
The second one "CARRAUNTOOHILL CLASSIC" is a standalone race first hosted by the Munster branch last year.
One would suspect the Irish Championship race may attract a bigger/stronger field.
Two very different routes up the same mountain
|Aleksandr Karnejevec||May 13 2019, 10:30am||Hi guys |
Is this entry race sold already? I couldn't find it to purchase at the site? Pitty (
|John J Barry||May 13 2019, 11:08am||its not opened yet for entries.|
|Conor O'Farrell||May 13 2019, 4:17pm||Entry will open this coming Saturday at 9am|
|Robbie Williams||May 13 2019, 4:38pm||Hi STEPHEN |
The 2nd race as John said is on 7th July
This is a completely different route.
If you look at it on the maps, it comes from 2 different sides.
Both are tough races, i believe the July one is more of a “fast course” if there is such a thing there..and certainly easier to navigate.
The first as John said is part of the Irish Championships which would be part of the 4 race series.
|Aleksandr Karnejevec||May 13 2019, 11:41pm||Thanks for that!|
|Justin Power||May 19 2019, 12:31pm||Have entries opened as mentioned on an earlier post?|

|Micheal O'Mullain||Jun 1 2019, 9:07pm||A sincere thanks to Vivian and his team on Corráin today. A masterclass in RD as always and a great outing.|
|Robbie Williams||Jun 2 2019, 10:08am||Thanks Vivian & co for yere volunteering and time. In fairness, a savage Distance and time commitment when your not running in it.|
Another great year.
|Vivian O'Gorman||Jun 2 2019, 12:14pm||I would like to thank everybody who was at Carrauntoohil yesterday.|
Admittedly some had a race while others had an adventure!!
I would particularly like to thank my volunteers. David Noonan - our Summit Marshall. He saved a number of runners from going on "safari" after leaving the top! And still put others on the right track on his way down.
Then there was Nora - Eoghan - Linda and John. And finally Eoin - Daniela and Oisin for laptop and first aid. Then Conor came along and between himself and Eoin the results were online before the prizegiving was finished!! Fantastic!!
Lastly thanks to John for the use of his yard and the Climbers Inn for the pizzas afterwards...
|Brian O'Meara||Jun 2 2019, 2:09pm||Echoing what Robbie said, thanks to Vivian & team. Cracking race as always.|
|Brian Kitson||Jun 4 2019, 8:37pm||I posted a report. What a Great Race.|
|Louis Mullee||Jun 4 2019, 10:44pm||If anyone is wondering what the route is like on a clear day, here is a video of the 2014 race, maybe next year we will get a view! https://youtu.be/Owya0jR3jtk|
