Tollymore NOC – The staff and management at the Tollymore National Outdoor Centre for looking after us once again at this superb venue.
Farmers & Landowners – A general word of thanks to the farmers and landowners of the Eastern Mournes for their continued indulgence of our event..
Sponsors – Jackson Sports – Once again Dion Jackson not only offered a generous prize pot but also joined us at 6am on Saturday morning in Tollymore in order to supply the pre-booked gas canisters and any other last minute necessities.
Forestry NI for accommodating access to Tollymore Forest Park and car parking space.
Timing Kit – The SPORTident timing system used in the event was generously loaned to us by NIMRA (Northern Ireland Mountain Running Association) and hired from SPORTident UK. I think everyone would agree that this technology is a great feature of the event providing timing detail for teams to pore over at the finish of each stage and for post race analysis. It also greatly enhances safety through accurate and timely information for marshals. If you are interested in hiring (or acquiring) this kit please contact Martin Stone at SPORTident UK.
With thanks from the Mourne MM Committee – Jim Brown, Terry McQueen, Mark Pruzina, Kerry Hall, Frank Morgan, Gareth McKeown and Paddy Mallon.
