Killoscully, Co. Tipperary
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 at Ryan's pub in the village, and it will be absolutely necessary to carpool to the race start due to extremely limited parking space there
DO NOT GO DIRECTLY TO THE RACE START AS YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO REGISTER THERE.

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
