Barry MooreJul 22, 1:45pmThanks Vivian and volunteers for organizing a great race. Mweelrea is a beast! doubt I've ever walked more in a race before but the decent, the views, the dip in the Atlantic and of course the cake made all the pain on the way up more than worth it :-)
Vivian O'GormanJul 19, 3:38pmHi Jim,

Race registration is at start of race at Silver Strand.
Jim MulcahyJul 19, 2:10pmHi,

Just wondering where exactly the race registration is?

Vivian O'GormanJul 18, 11:36pmA couple of notes:

Note the time change for this race is 1.30pm -- sharp!

Race registration will open at 12pm

Early starters can go at 12.30pm. If you want to start earlier no problem just let me know.

There is a kit requirement:

Longsleeved rainproof top

Map - Compass - Whistle -- Map can be printed off this website.

Bumbag with chocolate/biscuits and water.

Bring your own water.

Bring your rubbish home. Please don't drop on the mountain or anywhere else.

Prizegiving will in the start/finish area afterwards.
Pat StauntonJul 18, 10:21amJohn,
I'd say your best bet is through Westport.
Alan AylingJul 17, 8:22pmBBQ sounds good Niamh, if the weather obliges.
Alan AylingJul 17, 8:20pmPlan to stay in the van, somewhere round Westport. Might head down on the Friday, not sure yet. Intellectual conversation would be good, but drunken waffle would be a perfectly acceptable substitute....
Few pints to ease the leg muscles out before the Nephin race.
james ClancyJul 17, 4:24pmHey I am heading across at the weekend driving up Sat morning if you
keen on carpooling planning and staying up there Sat night probably camping westport house and doing Nephin Sun but I can get you to a train/bus if your jstt doing the one day?
Brian O'MurchuJul 17, 4:20pmHi Jeff,

I might be going (can let you know by Thur). I am pretty good at map reading, and I've been to university so can offer intellectual conversation....!!
niamh o ceallaighJul 17, 3:30pmHi Alan,
We are camping in Westport House, so if weather is nice, might do a bbq on sat night, else will head up the town somewhere.
Are you camping?
Alan AylingJul 17, 1:40pmSo where is the party on the Saturday night?
Jeff FitzsimonsJul 17, 12:05pmIs anyone else planning on heading over and back on the same day from Dublin? If so let me know, otherwise I'll just have to talk to myself for the width of the country.
Dermot MurphyJul 17, 10:44amHi Jim - yes, you can join on the day. If you have the registration form printed and completed, it would be a help.
Jim SmithJul 17, 10:36amHi,

I was going to do this race but I am not a member of IMRA yet. Can I join on the day and do the race if I bring the membership form? thanks
John O NeillJul 16, 10:50pmWhat is the best route to take from Dublin via Westport or via galway-leenane
Vivian O'GormanJul 6, 6:21pmPlease note the time for this race will be changed to 1.30pm

Allow yourselves plenty of time to get to Silver Strand - the other side of Louisburgh - for the race start

Just need a First Aid person otherwise have enough volunteers
John ShielsJun 30, 7:12pmViv,
Eithne and myself are available to do summit marshal for this race. drop me a mail on john dot shiels at to confirm details
brendan cownayApr 25, 1:58pmHi missed the training is there going to be another, left a message on facebook rabert but you might not have got it
Robert MalseedFeb 20, 8:19amNo problem Eamon. Have a great weekend yourself. I be looking to mix serious mountain running and a bit of fun.
Take care and have a great year.
Eamonn HodgeFeb 19, 9:59pmThat sounds like a great idea Rob. Unfortunately I'll be in Kerry with Rene, Jason and Aoife who are organising a weekend of running. Otherwise I would have been there. Best of luck with it.
Robert MalseedFeb 19, 11:46amI am organising a mountain running / endurance workshop here in Westport, County Mayo on the 7th - 8th April (Easter Weekend). The items that will be covered are Sport Psychology, physiology, performance, equipment and safety, ascending and descending, injury prevention, treatment and recovery, and on the 8th there will be an Easter Egg run on Croagh Patrick. I am looking to get an IMRA banner and material, and hopefully be getting people here in Connacht into the mountain running as I believe that we have a great reserve of talent here in Connacht. I hope to see as many IMRA members present. Robert
