    Just Run Events are a timing company who you could check out for races too.

    Great idea for an app. It may be more workable to get people sending you the race info - those for who it is mutually benefial - clubs, organisers, chip/timing companies.

    Best of luck

    Great idea and the app is laid out and functions well. I think Bohermeen half is missing.

    Looks great..just spotted that Clare island 10k is down as Co.Clare instead of Co.Mayo wouldn't want anyone getting lost!

    Excellent thanks will add that one.

    EDIT: Do you know where the starting line will be for that one?

    This will be my first year running it so not 100% sure but from the map it seems to start at the Bohermeen Community Center.

    Cheers, just asked the organiser and he said it's 700 meters away from the Community Center.

    Fair play. That level of detail requires serious effort you don't usually get.

    Excellent thanks. Will add this to my list of resources!

    Just downloaded it, looks good and I agree with others that it would be good to allow people add events. Best of luck with it!

    Cheers. I've been adding a good few from Popup races and IMRA the past few days.

    Just want to echo the comments of other posters by saying great job with the app. It looks nice and the design is very user-friendly.

    It's only a small thing but one "nice to have" you could include in the future could be the ability to view what races have been most recently added or be able to sort by date added.

    Congrats on the good work. I'll definitely be using this as my first port of call for finding races.

    Thanks for the feedback, always looking for feature requests and ideas from users themselves! On the home page you will see "Recently Added" events which shows the 5 most recently added events. However, do you mean a "sort" feature on the Events screen itself?

    Really liked the layout of the app. Only downloaded it a couple of mins ago so will have a good play with it and post any feedback I have.

    Apologies, I missed the New Events section on the home page. I think you have pretty much all the features covered that I would look for!

    Just spotted this and downloaded it. Really great idea and easy to use. Will keep it. Thanks very much.

    My suggestion for one that is missing is the Gap of Dunloe 10k and half marathon on February 23rd in Killarney.

    Excellent thanks I'll add those in. Is there any certain website or resource you use to find your races? Make sure to keep letting me know either here or via "Contact Us" in the app about missing events, it all helps!

    Nowhere in particular for me, this one popped up on Facebook last month cos im from Killarney. Its run by Alan hardman and his company is hardman events if you wanna check his website which is where I signed up for the race.

    Itll be my first ever race so with your app I can find more, and plan to!

    Hi not very tech here but I see a lovely CC race on the outskirts of dundalk. Seen Rob Kearney promoting it on Fb. It's the 'Kearney Cup', named after his grandfather. Hosted by Glenmore AC, if anyone wants to but it on the app. I'll have to look into getting the app too����


  • Registered Users Posts: 261 ✭✭ joe35


    It's on the 16th of February


  • Registered Users Posts: 130 ✭✭ Whestsidestory


    2 10ks in Mayo in April are Kilmovee 10k on Sat 11 and Run for Boylo in Foxford on the 26th


  • Registered Users Posts: 946 caff


    Could add the imra.ie events in too

    Excellent thanks. If you have some links to the event details it would be a big help as well.

    Yep I've added about 7 IMRA events up there at the moment so just adding all of the 2020 events over the next few days. If you filter by "Mountain Run" or just search "IMRA" you'll see what's currently there.

    Nice app, very well put together.

    A possible addition would be to allow users submit events.
    Another might be to allow users rate events and comment on them.

    Cheers for the feedback. Others have mentioned allowing users to add events but I always wondered if people would be bothered after adding a few as there's quite a bit of info to gather like name, description, regiatration url, coordinates for location, distances, type, contact info etc. I think event organisers would have a mutual interest to get their event some exposure but I can't see regular users adding too many events . Perhaps I could get most of the basic info and gather the rest myself.
