Frequently asked questions

When and where can I collect my BIB/race pack?


One hour before the race. Simply enter ‘Laragh GFC’ into Google Maps or most SatNavs and it will take you straight there.

How do I get to the race location?


Simply enter ‘Laragh GFC’ into Google Maps or most SatNavs and it will take you straight there. Alternatively, enter ‘The Woollen Mills’ in Laragh which is sign-posted just as you exit Laragh (from the North) or enter Laragh (from the South). A large overflow car park is now in place just across from the GAA grounds.

What is the cancelation/refund policy for this event?


We have a strict no refund and no transfer policy and will not be able to make exceptions to this policy. We can offer deferral to next year’s event, however, but no refund will be given in the unlikely event that the race does not take place the year after.

Are there medals and t-shirts?


To keep prices down we do not offer medals or t-shirts. We will of course offer refreshments after the race.

Will there be a time limit?


The short course will close at 3 pm and the long course at 3:30 pm. You can still complete the course but disassembly of finish line etc will happen at that time and you will not be given an official result after this time. This leaves you 3 hours to complete the 20 km and 2 hours to complete the 8 km race. A course cut-off of 14:15 is in place at the top of the climb (the 11 km) point. If you arrive after 14:15 at this point you will be asked to retire and will be driven down by jeep.

Are the water stations on the course?


No, you must be self-sufficient as far as water and sustenance is concerned. Especially runners on the long course must estimate their finishing time and gauge what they need to carry. Marshals and first aiders will carry emergency water only.
