I enjoyed the race. What I didn't enjoy was the long wait in the finish area waiting for our numbers to be written down. We were getting cold and it was very disorganised

Very much enjoyed the race. The only blip was the young boy racers in the souped up white car who went past us way too fast around 3 miles (I was around the 7 minute pace). Absolute idiots who could have injured us or spectators especially seeing as the conditions were wet and slippy. Did not get their registration unfortunately! Did give a good shout at them to slow down though seeing as their window was open. Apart from that a very enjoyable evening. Thanks to all involved in the organisation.

I thought the race was well organised with plenty of stewards and the longer single Shute off the road will hopefully have helped with the recording of the results. With a busy place like Glanmire on a week evening there is always going to be a problem with traffic but if there was a Garda at the lights people might not have been held up for so long and the race might have started on time. And finally well done to all the supporters who stood out in the rain.

Enjoyed the race. Plenty of stewards out on the course but seemed to be confusion at the start line with not enough co-ordination of traffic. Also the queues at registration were disappointing, especially those queueing outside in the rain. We are all advised to get to events early to register, that seemed the case yesterday. I cannot understand why multiple tables can be set up to take simulataneous entries similar to any of the Ballycotton events or why the results take so long to process.

I just want to say fair play to all the stewards & volunteers who got absolutely drenched towards the end of the race & afterwards. A thankless (but important)job!

Eileen on the run said...

Am curious to hear how many people ran - it seemed like a huge turnout.
Well done to the BHAA gang - super-efficient at this stage!!
John, we missed your usual race preview - it was strange to run a route without knowing when hills were due!!

Enjoyed the run despite the weather. Pity the gardai were late and so was the start. Great idea for the long chute in the pitch. And agree with the other poster...thanks to the stewards who got drenched before, during and after the race.

Gr8 race - well organised in my opinion
The pre and post race wait is par for the course with big races. The volunteers were brilliant. I'm definitely going to do it again

I thought the organisation of the actual race was top class. In a very busy area like Glanmire, it was always going to be challenging, but there was excellent stewarding. Only downside for me was the desperately long and slow-moving queue after the finish line to get the numbers written down in order. And especially when it was so cold. There must be a better way of doing this. Top class overall.

John Desmond said...

Too many races Eileen. It would take too long to preview them all.

Top Class event!,The crowd and excitement of the start on a narrow, busy road and the always excellent Gardai involved as well made it all seem like an international world event! Some newer runners told me that they very impressed with the scene and the organisation. The BHAA lads/ladies and volunteers were excellent.
