There will be limited parking at this location and runners will need to carpool from the Coach House in Roundwood.
Carpoolers are asked to make a small contribution to the 17th Roundwood Scout Troop, as one of the troop leaders, Mrs Nicky Gaffney, provide us with the use of the parking field.
Lisa Oâ€™Brien of Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team has kindly volunteered to act as First Aid officer at the race.
Vivian O Gorman will be Deputy Race director

|Brendan Lawlor||Jun 11 2009, 8:47am||Thanks Anthony. No problem if you want to run, just get over reasonably early and you can assist with registration and again after the race with collecting numbers and tidying up.|
I still need a few more helpers in particular a summit marshall

|John Connor||Jun 16 2009, 9:48am||Is registration at the Coach House or at race start ?|
Can anyone give directions from the Coach House to race start as i would like to run the course tonight ? Is it anywhere near lough Dan Scouting area ?
|Justin Rea||Jun 16 2009, 10:30am||As mentioned in the 'Getting There' section of the event. This race starts (and registers) on Wicklow Way, where it turns up lane south of Oldbridge and Lough Dan.|
From Coach House (Main St) turn up road at Roundwood Inn, follow main road left at next intersection and right at next. At 'T' junction, turn left and follow road for 2.5km through Oldbridge and look out for WW sign directing you to right up lane.
|Colm Kennedy||Jun 16 2009, 10:32am||Well, I am volunteering as a helper tomorrow - what time are we to be there at?|
|Brendan Lawlor||Jun 16 2009, 10:41am||Could all volunteers meet at either|
a) The Coach House at 5.45 and car pool from there or
b) At the registration area (Nicky and Brian Gaffneys House) at 6pm

|Shane Enright||Jun 16 2009, 3:03pm||I've offered seats for the carpool for Scarr but I'm not receiving emails whenever anyone books. So if you've booked (or intend to) please email me at my firstname dot lastname [at] gmail dot com as well.|
|Daragh Muldowney||Jun 16 2009, 8:44pm||Hi there,|
Do you still need volunteers for Scarr? If so I'd be happy to muck in.
|Marlon Davies||Jun 16 2009, 9:13pm||Hi all...just wondering if anyone else might be able to pick up from any of the dart or LUAS stops at around 6-6:30. My email is mdavies2 at hotmail dot com. I am keep my eye on the carpooling page.|
|Ronan Hickey||Jun 17 2009, 10:29am||Likewise is there anyone I can catch a lift from to get to Scarr tonight? I am working in the centre of town so I can get to a DART station or Luas stop or get a taxi to a meeting point if it's close.|
|Ronan Hickey||Jun 17 2009, 10:30am||Ack..email address is rdhickey -at- gmail dot com and mobile is 085 7460181|
|John Barry||Jun 17 2009, 12:48pm||I can pick up at Windy Arbour Dart at 5:45. 087 6058095|
|Ronan Hickey||Jun 17 2009, 1:04pm||Hi John,|
That would be brilliant. I assume you mean Windy Arbour Luas stop rather than a Dart stop? That's brilliant! I'll see you there at 5:45. I'll be wearing a grey goretex(kinda) jacket and jeans and carrying a blue and black backpack. Do you want to mail me your phone number so I can contact you?
Thanks again! Need to make my seven races :-)
|Ronan Hickey||Jun 17 2009, 1:04pm||*sigh* sorry saw your telephone number just now :-)|

|Jim Fitzharris||Jun 18 2009, 2:52pm||I just wanted to say thank you to Brendan Lawlor and his team (especially, the REAL race director, Vivian .....) for organising a great race at Scarr last night. Brendan, you obviously put out the correct Child of Prague this time, unlike last year. Special thanks also to Joe Lalor and helpers for the welcome drink of water at the FINAL summit - any chance of a cuppa tea next year??|
Do any of the GPS-toting runners have an accurate distance for last night's run and also that for last year? I would be curious to know how much longer this year's version was. I felt I ran faster this year but my time was marginally slower than last year's.
|Pol O'Murchu||Jun 18 2009, 3:01pm||Last year I made it 7.79km and this year 8.1km so about 300 meters more roughly.|
|Rene Borg||Jun 18 2009, 3:49pm||Hi Jim,|
You can see a comparison of the last three year's route lengths and ascents in my race report (not the club report). Basically, this year was approx 500m longer than last year, while last year was 400m shorter than 2007.
|Jim Fitzharris||Jun 19 2009, 5:20pm||Thanks Pol and Rene - much appreciated.|
I am curious about the different readings. Pol got 7.8k last year and Rene got 7.5k - quite a difference. Both are closer this year: 8.1k vs 8.0k. I am also puzzled that Rene's elevation for this year was NOT the highest which was what I would have expected as this year's was the longest route and started further down the road although I think the 2007 race started even further down the road (I did not run it that year). I appreciate that an individual's slight route variations would make a difference although surely not that much?
