THE Run Clare series is almost here and The Clare Echo can’t wait to get their stride on for the first event this Saturday.
The organisers have some info for participants to help the first event run smoothly.
It takes part in Barefield, County Clare.
Barefield is a very small village and they ask that you carpool as much as possible and park either in Hassett’s bar or along the road at the same side of the road as the bar.
DO NOT park on the side of the road where the church, finish line and start line is as this is the race route and you will impede your own, and others’ race.
There will also be parking along the hard shoulder as you approach Barefield.
Please do not block residents’ driveways; they ask you to respect the neighbours’ right of access to their own homes.
Race number collection will take place in Hassett’s bar, Barefield on Friday Janury 26 from 6-8pm sharp and on Saturday morning from 9-10.30am sharp.
They will not wait for late comers.
You MUST wear your race number on your front on race day and keep it for subsequent races as you will have to ‘check in’ at each event so we know you have participated in order to be eligible for the finishers medal in Tuamgraney in April.
The race is run on open roads.
Please follow the stewards’ instructions and be careful.
There will be water and fruit at the finish line so please use the bins provided to discard all rubbish.
Look out for The Clare Echo and be sure to say hello!
