There are showers in the Youth Centre but usually limited and busy. The
swimming pool beside the youth centre will allow anybody who ran the
race use their shower facilities for a charge of €3. Some people found
this very handy in years gone by. One can also go for a swim.

You do not need to hand back yout number after the race.

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.

transfer your race number. If this occurs you will
be denied entry in the future.

Prizes Top 5 and First three in all categories
When you arrive to the race start, you will see the starting
corral. The corral will be quite long, so please find your
appropriate area in the corral. There will be a team of
stewards at the start area who will be more then happy to help you find
your corral position. There will also be signs
along the corral, with estimated finish times. Remember
that your pacers will also be in the starting corral. Look out
for the balloons. This should give you an indication of where you
should position yourself.
It is for the benefit of everybody if you follow the times
indicated. It gets very busy once the clock starts,
and it can have an effect on everybody’s times if you are in the wrong
zone. If you are targeting a Sub 85 run, then it could
hinder you, if you are up at the sub 65 section. Nobody
likes to start a race with people running up their back. If you
locate yourself in the 85-minute section, then you are running with
like-minded people who will all help you achieve your goal.
