There is again the new course for the race this year. It will start and finish on the Kerry Way in the Brida Valley. This is about 10k past the Climbers Inn in Glencar. It will be signposted after the Climbers Inn. 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: Bumbag containing chocolate/biscuits and water. A longsleeved rainproof running top. Hat and Gloves. Map - Compass - 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.
Inter-Counties Championships The first 3 county teams in both the men and women categories will be awarded championship medals. Any number of athletes may run on a team with the highest placed 3 finishers counting for the team result. The first female finisher will score 1 point. Runners must register their county in the laptop.
Please make sure to use the Kerry way on both the uphill and downhill - going off the Kerry could potentially lead to trespassing issues which may jeopardise the running of this race in the future.
