Directions from Newport: if you are coming through Newport from Limerick (heading east on the R503), go over the bridge in Newport and take a left. Go straight out this road and take a right at the graveyard. Take your next left and then next left again (there's about 2.7km between these lefts). This takes you over a small bridge. Follow this road for about 4.5km to Killoscully Village.
Registration will take place in the village, and it will be necessary to carpool to the race start due to limited parking there
DO NOT GO DIRECTLY TO THE RACE START AS YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO REGISTER THERE.
OSI grid reference: R 779 686
This race is open to all and the cost is €10. There is no online pre-registration available. Please arrive 60 mins before race start time as registration will close 15min before race start time to allow time to get to the start.
If you have already run an IMRA race this year, bring the race number given to you at that race as it is valid for the full year.
However, if this is your first IMRA race this year, you must purchase yearly IMRA membership for €10 per person. Please download the membership form, and fill it out beforehand to speed up registration (they will be available on the day too). You will then be given a race number that is used for other IMRA races this year.
Under IMRA rules for competitors safety, it is mandatory to bring and carry a jacket that is shower and wind proof for the entire race. Any competitor seen not carrying or wearing their jacket at any stage in the race will be disqualified. There are no exceptions to this rule!
Refreshments afterwards in Ryan's Bar in Killoscully
You need to have done 2 non-running volunteer roles in a calendar year to qualify for Leinster League finisher's prize
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 Leinster League finisher prize
