Athletes who are entered, but who are not running, should NOT attend, and if they do, they will be told to leave the venue

Coaches, unless acting as club coordinator, should not attend


You should plan to arrive no earlier than the time listed in the schedule below. If you arrive before time, you will be directed past the grounds, as queuing outside, on the Riverstick-Carrigaline road, is NOT permitted


Cars should be parked facing toward the field - drive into the spot - do not reverse in. After the race, you will then drive out directly. 
Parents/Guardians should remain in their cars throughout - races will start at the top of the field, in front of the parking area, with the finish also close by.

Toilet Facilities
Please do as your Mammy told you: Go BEFORE you leave home!

Due to cleaning and hygiene requirements under Covid-19, there will be no toilet facilities available.

Club Coordinators (Juvenile Races ONLY)

Each club has been asked to nominate separate coordinators for each Juvenile race. The coordinators will collect that club's Juvenile athletes and bring them to the start line, when called to do so over the Public Address. They will then collect the Juveniles after the race and escort them back to their Parent/Guardian.

Please leave the site as soon as possible after your race - The site MUST be cleared before the next race.
