Medals for the first three individuals of each race will be on the podium for collection.
Team medals will be forwarded through the club competition secretaries.
After an athlete’s race we ask that they leave the venue as soon as practicable.
There will be a separate exit point from the competition field back to the car park field.
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 but all athletes Juveniles, Juniors, Seniors and Masters must pre enter in order to compete.
