Poor numbers due to wrong date choice with Waterford half on the day before.

Like every race/run/walk you can only present an event. Paying for advertising and massive prizes are not always possible. I hope they can go again for 2018. The race director was very honest with his findings at the end.

Didn't see any advertising for this event. Pity would have loved to go.

Hi All,

I was the RD yesterday. In relation to the Waterford half, we had a take it or leave it decision to make and we went with it. The numbers were hit and miss no matter what we did at this time of year. I completed the WHM but wasn't able to run yesterday as I was on duty.

Advertising - we couldn't afford it and we had tight deadlines, but this was contained in my feedback to the race committee. We did contact nearly every club on their FB pages.

The race will go ahead next year, but I doubt I will be RD again. All feedback is welcome positive or negative, The neutral we can try turn to positive next year.

Fair play Killian for an honest summary. I hope it gets better support next year. It seems local support was good but maybe some of the other east cork clubs were absent which is disappointing
