Ballycotton 10 Update...2pm Fri 3rd March
As mentioned in our previous update, in our 38 years organising the race this unquestionably have been the most difficult, due to circumstances completely outside our control.
Car parking each year is now our biggest concern and with the unprecedented weather conditions this winter it has taken on an even greater urgency. Up to noon today (Friday), whether the race took place or not on Sunday was in doubt. However, we have decided to go ahead and we would ask that people take note of the parking arrangements and to follow the instructions of the Gardai and the race stewards.
Once again, we ask people if at all possible to car pool to cut down the number of vehicles and also to allow extra time in getting to Ballycotton.
With the extra logistics due to the car parking arrangements, we would certainly welcome any extra help on the day. If anyone is free to offer assistance, please contact Tom Hartnett at: 086-2386390.
Thanks to Cork County Council, repairs have been carried out on the various roads in the area but we remind runners that iPods, headphones, etc are banned for safety reasons and buggys, dogs or bicycles are not allowed at any stage on the course.
For those who did not receive their race packs, please report to the Community Hall on Sunday (10am onwards) for a new number. Most of the information you require is contained in the FAQs in the race programme and on no account can numbers be transferred.
And finally, in anticipation we thank you for your co-operation and patience and we wish you all an enjoyable and rewarding day around the roads of Ballycotton on Sunday next.
