Entry Procedure for the 2016 Ballycotton 10 Mile Road Race

Ballycotton Running Promotions have just released the entry procedure for the 2016 Ballycotton 10 mile road race. It remains much the same as previous years except that it is now even easier for club runners, Summer Series runners and overseas runners to enter online. They also have the option of posting in their entries in a one week window. See below...



The following is the entry procedure for next year’s Ballycotton ’10’ which will take place on Sunday March 6th. Once again, numbers are limited and there will be a combination of online and postal entries, as follows:

1) Online entries will open on Tuesday December 8th at 2pm, when the first 1,000 will be accepted. At 8pm the same evening a further 1,000 will be accepted, making an initial online total of 2,000. 

2) For Athletics Ireland and Athletics Northern Ireland affiliated members plus those who ran the four races in the Ballycotton Summer Series 2015, along with those living overseas, an additional online facility will open on Wednesday December 9th at 10am until midnight on Friday December 11th.

3) Postal entries: A PDF copy of the entry form will be published on the Ballycotton website on the evening of Friday December 11th, and will also be available in the usual local outlets.
All club and Summer Series entrants (see above) and overseas will be accepted by post up to and including Thursday December 17th.The first 200 non-club entries to arrive by post will be also be added to the above.

4) As usual, a limited number of elite entries will be available nearer the date. 

Entry fee for the 2016 race is again €15 (plus booking fee of €1.05, if entering online).


So what does that all mean? If you are interested then pay attention to the dates! The online entries will probably fill up in a day.

If you are not a member of an athletics club, did not do the four Ballycotton Summer Series races and are not overseas then you need to make sure you enter online on Tuesday 8th December. Based on previous years then you should get in ok but you need to be online and be prepared to wait so that you can enter your details.

I wonder who will be handling entries now with Precision gone? Hopefully not EventMaster after the mess they made of the ring of kerry.
