*A temporary lighting system is also being erected to assist participants on their return journey to each car park.
*Weather permitting refreshments will be served and prizes will be presented in the Church Car Park adjacent to Loughaderra Lake. In the event of rain these will take place in the Community Centre.
Note To All Participants
The organising committee has decided to open an entry desk from 1pm at the newly built Ballintotis Community Centre. Whilst this might seem a very early hour, we feel it could facilitate a number of people who commute regularly on the N25 Cork/Waterford road. It will also of course be an advantage to local people living in the vicinity of the race.
Overall we urge runners to arrive early and please follow the advice of stewards and members of the gardai. Hopefully with a bit of luck weather wise, we will all have another enjoyable evening in Ballintotis.
