Aisling CorkeryJul 31, 3:22pmHi, I'm looking for a lift down the Galtymore race, so just wondering if there's anyone near the Stillorgan area driving down to the race with free car space on offer. I can cycle to wherever you want to leave from. Thanks!
Paul SmythJul 31, 3:39pmAisling,

I'm travelling down and you're welcome to a lift if you can get to Citywest or Tallaght. I won't be hanging around after the race though as I need to get back as early as possible. Ph: OhEightSevenTwoSixOneSixFourOhSeven.
Aidan BligheAug 1, 11:11pmHi Aisling,
I think there is 2 of us travelling down so i definitely have 2 spaces. Leaving from Stepaside area.
Damien KennyAug 2, 12:26amHi All,

Interested in taking part on Sunday in the Galtees and doing Cratloe and then Mangerton in a few weeks. Have done a couple of ARs so know what to expect to some degree and have the necessary gear. Happy enough that I'd get there in the end though very slowly :)

Just wondering about the navigation aspect for the longer unmarked runs such as Sunday. Any advice? Could a novice in that sense take part? It's been a few years since I was up the Galtees.

pat barryAug 2, 12:19pmThere are some old race reports here. Very enjoyable read they are too - makes it sound a doodle!!

Aisling CorkeryAug 2, 3:24pmHi Paul & Aidan

Thanks a mill for the lift offers, I've managed to get one with Stuart Scott. So see ye at the race :o) Thanks again, Aisling
Will DouglasAug 3, 5:34pmHi all,

I'm looking to do the Galty race on Sunday. Is it ok to show up and race or do I need to fill something out before hand.

I'm driving from Cork if anyone would like a lift?

All the best,

tom BlackburnAug 4, 9:20amYou can turn up on the day and register to run if you are not a member of the association you can download the entry form from the website fill it up and bring it with you on the morning.You should be aware that is a very difficult event and if the weather conditions are bad we wont be encorouging people to run unless they are experienced mountain runners and have a manditory kit and can navagate.
Will DouglasAug 4, 1:16pmThanks Tom. I dont have access to a printer at home, will the be formes available to fill out there? I have done a fair bit of mountain walking so I am capable of navigating should the weather reqire it. If you hear of anyone needing a lift from cork or anywhere on the M8 route ill be happy to give one.
tom blackburnAug 4, 11:25pmThanks Will,we have entry formssee you in the morning.

Pat BarryAug 12, 4:13pmHi All, I have just got back to Manchester after a week in Ireland. I would like to say I really enjoyed the Galteemore race, tough little bugger! I have to give a special thanks to the organisers the number of DNFs and having to go looking for the lady who ended up spending 5.5 hrs on the hill goes to show the responsibility the organisers take upon themselves, so a very big thank you.

I spend a few day down in Kerry and got out very early in the morning to do the Carrauntoohil race route. That is a fair climb from the Kerry way up to the summit of An Caher. I would love to arrange a trip back to do that some year!
Pat barryAug 12, 11:41pmI have put together a little report about my race on the Pennine Fell Runners blog
