I am now taking entries for the Antrim 300 on 1’st October.
Full details – http://www.audaxireland.org/events-calendar/gazetteer/300km-events/antrim-300/
Route is unchanged from last year (subject to check).
NO SIGN UP ON THE DAY – but you can pay on the day. If you want to pay PayPal – send it to me – sending it to the club just confuses me as I don’t know who’s paid what where.
Send me completed forms by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), post etc.
OR just send me the details below by email – this is actually my preferred entry format as I can just cut and paste.
Emergency Contact – name
Emergency Contact – phone
Please stop sending me Euro postal orders as I can’t easily cash them – although they do seem to increase in value!
