Race sign-in, and showers and food will be at the Village Hall in Lisvarrinane.
These two campsites are within 1.5k of the race start, a large one at TipperaryCamping and BallinacourtyHouse which is a smaller campsite (have a restaurant and B&B as well). Both said they would offer a reduced rate to people running the LoopDeLoop if they inform the campsite at time of booking.
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
