Ken CowleyJan 4, 1:58pmA friend of mine wants to do the Art O'Neill, which is next Friday, 13th Jan.
Apparently, the organisers are still allowing transfers, so if any IMRA runner is thinking of dropping out feel free to let me know at kencowley@ireland.com
Thanks.

I'm thinking of skipping this one (after enjoying all the recce's of the offroad, I find myself ambivilent about the 30k road section :)

Don't know if they are still accepting transfers, but I sent you an email anyway.
Justin O'KeeffeJan 5, 3:16pmAre there many planning on running this event slowly & are stuck between (1) not wanting to walk the second half in a slow moving guided group after running out of town & (2) not fancy wandering the hills in darkness!

There are a few of us in the same boat looking for an alternate solution as a slowish / constant running group - shoot me an email on justinokeeffe AT gmail DOT com if interested
Ken CowleyJan 16, 8:15amWell done to everyone involved in organising the Art O'Neill, and to Eoin Keith on his amazing record winning win.
I blogged about it a bit on a couple of my blog sites, so seeing as it's not an IMRA event (thus with nowhere to put up a race report) - here's a link in case anyone's interested.

Great event!
Brendan LawlorJan 16, 10:04amWell done to all the Art O'Neill-ers at the weekend - you fast lads and lassies weren't hanging around to chat to me at CP1 at Kilbride Army Camp, but a few of you did say hello.

Eoin Keith set a new record (on a slightly shortened course)of 5 hours 26 mins, but he was closely followed by Paul Tierney (5:35) and Greg Byrne (5:38). Taryn McCoy was first woman home in 7:51 and she was 19th finisher overall - great performance!

The final finisher came in at about 5pm (17 hours approx) and there were a record number of people completing the challenge

Here's the first 50 home, full results with splits at www.artoneillchallenge.ie - lots of familiar names in there
