After competition:

After an athlete’s race we ask that they leave the venue as soon as practicable.

 

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.
