Combining several traditions (Bray Head Christmas Flash and the Djouce Djoggers' Djouce Djog), this race has been nominated to remember those IMRA members who have passed. Overall the intended spirit is for some fun to celebrate the lives of those who've passed. Fancy Dress is encouraged. Noting the photo of Brendan Doherty RIP, who sadly passed earlier this year. - Parking: the field beside the Djouce car park isn't available in winter, so we're all going to squeeze into the main car park. Can you please all car pool where possible from Kilmacanogue? If parking in Pluck's please park down the back so the front of their car park doesn't look full, putting other punters off. - Registration closes Friday 21st at midnight. You have been warned. Other registration-related questions (ask on the forum if not answered here): Will we have chip timing? No. Are we taking vouchers? Yes Is there a short/junior course? No - there is only one course (about 8k). Parents/guardians of those under 18 must decide if their child can manage the distance. Is there an early start? Not a formal one. Can you buy vouchers online and pick them up at Djouce? Hopefully - if we don't have the vouchers you can run and get them at the next race. I've no 2018 IMRA number, I've missed the pre-registration date of December 21st, what can I do? Don't be asking that question before December 21st.
You need to have done 2 non-running volunteer roles in a calendar year to qualify for end of year 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 end of year prize
