We have secured permissions from the Forest Service, Newry & Mourne District Council and local Landowners for this race and we would ask that all racers show respect to anyone they meet on the trail (Forest Service / Council representatives, walkers etc). All teams must take all rubbish (sweet bags, gel / bar wrappers) back to the start finish area and if we find any team littering along the route they will incur a time penalty.
All our marshals are there on a voluntary basis; many of them will be on the mountain all day and will be looking forward to a pint or two as much as many of the racers will be. Show them plenty of respect – they might let your tyres down or drill a hole in your boat! If you have any problems about any aspects of the race save the comments for the end of the race and direct them towards the race organisers. We welcome your comments and they will all be taken on board when planning next year’s race.
