When will I get my number?
You will receive your number in the post in the week prior to the race. If you do not receive your number please contact Ann Dunford at 086 0619711.

What must I do with the chip?
Your chip which is assigned to you and has all your details will be attached to your race number and please note, do not bend or try to fold your number as this could damage your chip and you will not receive a time for your race. Remember only one goodie bag will be given to each runner. Do not carry multiple chips during any part of the race. Goodie bags are given to finishers only.

Should I wear my number on the front or the back?
Your race number should always be worn on the front, on your singlet/t-shirt, not on your shorts. This will facilitate the reading of the chip at the finish line thus giving you an accurate time.

What happens when I cross the finish line?
Please proceed immediately through the finish tunnel where you will receive your ‘goodie bag’ (including your dry fit t-shirt).

Are there showers/refreshments after the race?
Yes there will be showers and refreshments available after the race. Once again men’s showers will be in the Sports Centre and ladies will use the Boxing Club next door.

Can I wear an IPod/Mp3 player?
We do not under any circumstances allow our runners to use I-pods or Mp3 players. We have found out over the years that headphone wearers do not hear instructions from our stewards/Gardai and so are safety hazards. With the numbers we have in this race we must look after everyone’s safety and so to stop this we do not give headphone wearers any finish time. We will have someone assigned to take note of their race number and ‘headphone wearer’ will appear on the race results instead of their name. We take this very seriously, we have to, your safety is important to us.

What first aid facilities are available?
On the day of the race we will have a medical jeep and ambulance’s following the race from The Order of Malta. These qualified paramedics will be on hand to attend to any emergency. If you have any difficulty please notify a steward on the course.

Are there toilets by the start?
Portaloos will be available at the start line. Please remember the start is in a residential area so please refrain from going to the toilet in the vicinity.  This is common sense so please don’t upset our neighbours, this is our town and we are very proud of it.

Does this race have an A.A.I. permit?
Yes this race does have an A.A.I. permit.

What are the prizes for the race?
The prize fund for this race is €6,000. Please refer to Race Prizes.

Will there be parking available?
There will be some parking in the vicinity of the Sports Centre/Boxing Club area but this will be on a first come first served basis. There are many car parks in the town and these are signposted on the approach roads. There will be absolutely no parking allowed at the start/finish area. All entrants are requested to park in designated public parking spaces only.

Who can I contact for help?
