Entries for the 2008 Ballycotton 10 reach 2,500 quota - Fri 7th of Dec
It's hard to believe but Ballycotton Running Promotions have reached their quota of 2,500 entries despite the fact that the entry forms only came out last Monday. So, they recieved the 2,500 entries in just 4 days!!

Entries are now open ONLY to the following people....
1) If you are a member of an AAI registered running club OR you ran one of the four 5 mile races in the Ballycotton Summer series (Ballyandreen, Shanagarry, Churchtown South, Ballycotton). If you qualify under these conditions, you have until Tuesday, the 18th of Dec to get your entry in.
2) If you are an overseas entrant, you have until the Tuesday, the 8th of Jan 2008.

So, if you don't qualify under conditions 1) or 2) above, then don't send your entry. By the way, there are no cancellations. They know that a percentage of the 2,500 will not make it on the day and they take this into account when estimating the number of people who will be there for the race.

The full statement from Ballycotton Running Promotions is shown below...
In just four days, the 2,500 race entry limit for the Ballycotton ‘10’ has been reached. This means the we cannot accept any more entries unless you are a member of an Athletics Association of Ireland club or have run one of our 2007 Summer 5-mile races or you live overseas.
Please DO NOT continue to send in entries if you don’t qualify as above. It only causes extra work and expense as all late entries will have to be returned.
It’s quite simple. You should know if you a member of an AAI club – the four Summer Series races were Ballyandreen, Shanagarry, Churchtown South, Ballycotton – and overseas means anyone living outside of the island of Ireland.
The closing date for club runners/Summer Series applicants is Tuesday December 18th and for overseas Tuesday January 8th (both by post only). Entries received after those dates will be sent back. Take into account Christmas delays when posting.
