There will be restricted car parking near the start of the race. We will have the use of the local farmers yard for this at a cost of 3.00 euro per car. There will absolutely be NO car parking on the road. All runners must bring with them the following: A longsleeved rainproof running top. Hat and Gloves, Whistle Extra clothing: Warm longsleeved top and leggings. The Race Director will make the decision on the day as to what runners will wear and bring with them for the race. The Race Directors decision will be final.
Under IMRA rules for competitor's 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!

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
