Update on Ballycotton '10' entries...

Over 3,500 race packages were posted on Tuesday so all entrants should have them by the end of this week. The organisers want to offer a special word of thanks to the 30 or so volunteers who assembled in Ballycotton Community Hall on Monday night and got the whole procedure finished in record time.

Chip Timing......An important note regarding the race numbers: This year, there is NO timing chip to attach to your shoe (ignore the mention of the shoe in the FAQs in the programme, this was a copy of last year's version and was included by mistake). The chip is incorporated into the race number that you attach to the front of your singlet (it’s at the top centre, under a little flap). Note that it is IMPORTANT that you attach the number to the FRONT of your vest/T-shirt in the normal way, i.e. chest high held on by four safety pins, one at each corner (holes supplied!). Do NOT cover the number with clothing or belts, etc as this will interfere with the timing.......and the number does NOT go on your back!.......unless you plan on running the course backwards.

The organisers would also like to emphasise the following points......
1) If you are unable to run, you can’t give the number to another person (remember, you signed the form agreeing to this). They operated a name and shame policy before and published the photos and names of those running with wrong numbers up on their website.

2) They don’t have a cancellation policy or waiting list so there is no need to send back the number. Therefore, if you cannot use the number yourself – just destroy it.

As far as I know, there are no plans to have any pacers.
