Food & Drinks:
Athletes/spectators must bring their own refreshments with them. No bins will be provided so all rubbish must be brought home by those that would like to bring a picnic.
Recording of athletes at finish:
As we can no longer give out tickets at the finish line – we ask each club to provide a stick- on number to all of their competing juvenile athletes marked with their relevant club number. Each juvenile club will be allocated a number and all club athletes must wear that number as follows:
Ballymore Cobh A.C. 1
Carrignavar A.C. 2
Midleton A.C. 3
St. Catherines A.C. 4
St. Nicks A.C. 5
Watergrasshill A.C. 6
Youghal A.C. 7
It is very important that each club coach knows their first four athletes in each race as our recorders will only record a club number and not a name.
A separate recording procedure will be in place for the senior/master athletes who must pre enter in order to compete.
