Vivian O'GormanJun 26, 10:59pmHi Folks,

Need a few more volunteers for Lug:

A Summit Marshall
Lap Top Operator
First Aid Person

Also don't forget the kit requirement:

Longsleeved rainproof running top
Hat and Gloves
Bumbag with chocolate/biscuits
Your own water

Map - Compass - Whistle

Give yourselves plenty of time to enter and get to the start. It will take
at least 10/15 minutes to get there.

There will be NO enties after 12.30pm

Take ALL your rubbish home with you - gel wrappers etc

Early Starters can go from 12.30 but please let me know before you go.

Race registration will open at 10.30 outside Fentons.
Mick HanneyJun 27, 9:42pmVivian, I'll summit marshall for you.
Regards,
Mick

Amidou dembeleJun 28, 7:57pmHi,
I would like to run Lug na coille on saterday. Anyone driving from dublin to give me a lift?
Many thanks in advance,

Amidou
Ken CowleyJun 29, 9:23amHi Amidou,

I'm driving to the race from Fairview.
The race is at 1pm, but I might do the early start at 12.30, so want to be there for 12ish, therefore leaving Fairview at 11.4.
Driving through the city centre, down the quays and out to M50. Where do you live?
Anyone else need a lift?

Jeff FitzsimonsJun 29, 2:08pmAmidou, I'll be leaving Rathfarnham around 11, if that suits you any better. I will not be driving back after the race, but you should get a lift home no worries. Or the alternative is to run back to Glendalough with me and a few others after the race and get a lift back from me then!

So you have a decision to make, Amidou. We'll know who is your favourite based on it!

If that suits anyone else let me know.

Jeff
Amidou dembeleJun 29, 6:11pmThanks Ken, Jeff,

Ken, I'll go with Jeff then as I also live in Rathfarnham. Jeff, let say I made my decision based on efficiency:),my mobile is 0870542042, please text me where I can meet you.

See you all tomorrow!

Amidou
Jeff FitzsimonsJun 29, 6:23pmDropped you a text, Amidou.

Given the speed of Amidou and the fact I am practically guaranteeing myself a place lower by facilitating his racing do I get a spot prize or volunteer role against my name? :)
Ronan HickeyJun 30, 5:49pmGreat race guys! Boggy but brilliant. Much thanks as always to Vivian and all his volunteers, especially for the far marshal Rachel holding a tough spot in that mist and rain!

Ercus StewartJun 30, 7:25pmhi, agreed, well done Vivian. a good race again. Ercus
Brian FureyJun 30, 8:03pmHi,
thanks to Vivian and the guys for putting on a great race.Special mentions goes to Rachael on the summit taking numbers, Mick Hanney on Camara Hill. John Shiels was there on the summit as well. Fast descent even in the wet.
Name might have changed to Log na Coille but its still the same race :)
Cheers,
Brian
Ken CowleyJun 30, 8:39pmAmazing race, very well organised and with the usual relaxed 'IMRA at the weekend' atmosphere.
I recce'd it about 6 weeks ago, when it was very dry, was a different beast today after such a wet June, very sloshy and boggy in places, but no less fun for that!
Roll on Mount Leinster!
Jeff FitzsimonsJun 30, 8:47pmGreat fun today, the muck and sh1te only added to the occasion. As ever, IMRA deliver the best value and fun racing in the country.
John ShielsJun 30, 8:52pmHa, I was at the summit before you Brian because I started at 12.30!
Still got some photos of most of the people in the race which I'll upload now

David BellJun 30, 8:57pmThanks from all at Mourne Runners for a great race, especially the marshals on the summits in the mist and drizzle - definitely well worth the trip from Co Down. Hopefully the hen party in Fentons is going well!
Mick HanneyJun 30, 9:14pm1st 2 descenders.

John AhernJun 30, 11:21pmI particularly like the kisses that now seem to be available for the winner. This could be the motivation I need to get me on the podium soon.
Will the girls be back for future races??
Vivian O'GormanJul 6, 5:27pmSummit Positions now up under race report.

There are two runners missing from list:

Brian Wilson race number 1195
