Quick word of thanks to the organisers for a superbly-run race last night. Everything worked really well and the entry fee of €5 was brilliant value, putting a lot of the commercially driven events to shame. That was my first time taking on the 'Beast' but it won't be the last. Also, great to have the results up so early this morning. Hats off to all involved.

Very well run and organised as usual. A tough but fair course. I still think chip timing and mats would be a great idea - a topic which has been revisited before but once again well done to Ballycotton running promotions. Looking forward to the other races.

1st time attempting this race, well done to all the organisers and stewards. Great value for 5 euro. As 1st post says, great to have results up so quickly. Please pass on thanks and appreciation to the the house owners and team who provided the post race cuppa and biscuits. CGC.

great organization and atmosphere as usual. Just a call the all runners to position themselves at the suggested time zone at the start, especially in narrow starts like these ones.
