    I've renewed my membership - struggling to figure out how to register a company\team though. Any ideas how I can do this ( A few of us have emailed the BHAA over the last few weeks with no word back yet)

    Thanks a mill

    I am thinking of joining the BHAA.

    For races; do you wear your club singlet or your business singlet or does it matter at all.

    Thanks

    Pretty sure it doesn't matter. FWIW I wear my business singlet in these races, but I've seen many's a club vest there over the years too....and of course lots of vests which don't fall into either category :)

    Why does the K club 10 clash with Dunboyne 4 miler. Two good races too close to each other. Dunboyne use to be a lovely tune up race for K-club. Also doesn't make sense not to a 4 mile race before the k-club 10k.

    They are organised by different people. There are only so many weekends available. K-Club has clashed with the National 10K in the past which was worse.

    Prefer it to clash with national 10k, national 10k is not a good event!!

    K-club and Dunboyne 4 miler are class events and over the years these fitted nicely in the calendar

    Excuse my ignorance as new to cross country - what length spikes would one need for tomorrow's race?

    Thanks

    With no championship XC for me this year...signed up to BHAA for the first time since maybe 2011 so I could do XC. Have missed both for various reasons. :(

    Great turnout in the park this morning, Well done to the Garda volunteers and BHAA for organising another great race. That hill on the 3rd lap was a killer :(

    Nice going from Duanington


  • Registered Users Posts: 472 ✭✭Butterbeans


    Thanks! Just looking at the team results there and realised I placed. Is there prizes? Regardless, I'm absolutely delighted!


  • Registered Users Posts: 881 ✭✭✭JosDel


    Thanks to the ALSAA volunteers & BHAA for another great CC, Tough auld slog..


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,983 ✭✭✭Duanington


    Enjoyed today's race, soft going in places but for the most part there was ample opportunity to run, the extra mile puts a different context on a crss country race too!

    Well organised as always, well done BHAA

    Really enjoyed today’s race. Soft going in places, especially on the last lap but I have seen it much worse in other years. Well done to ALSAA and the BHAA for organising.

    Where are you seeing that L? I can only find reference to last year's being cancelled.

    Think official announcement will be made soon only getting word in the last 25 min decision from NUI as grounds declared unsafe.

    Unfortunately due to water logging on the course on NUI Maynooth, the BHAA AIB cross country this weekend has to be cancelled.
