On behalf of Loughcrew Coasters I would like to thank all the RAI team for a brilliant event once again this year. We thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciate the hard work you guys put in to make it work so well. This was my second time to be involved with a team in the RAI and I have a feeling I may be back in some capacity again next year. Thanks again and looking forward to next year already.
The RAI strips away any preconceived notions of oneself in terms of thoughts, ego, courage and desire. It is nothing short of a penetrating voyage of discovery in examining what lies at the core of us as beings. All in all, it was quite possibly the best five days of my live so far.
On behalf of the entire Veloroos crew, I wanted to thank you for putting on an absolutely fantastic event. Please pass on our thanks to all the volunteers who made it happen. We were blown away by the scenery and by the support we received from so many people in Ireland and the wonderful atmosphere in Moynalty when we finished. Our aim is always to inspire others, particularly women, that they can achieve anything if they set their mind to it and, following the success of the Veloroos, Galway Baybes and Nicole Reist, hopefully you will have more and more women taking part in the race in the future.
I would like to say thank you all for allowing me to be an Official in RAI 2018. I had a blast. It was totally different seeing the event from a different angle. I was able to watch them on the Blackblox, but I was also able to be part of the action on the road, I loved how it built up to the final crossing f the finish line.
"We enjoyed the event and appreciated the hospitable welcome and support that we received. Thank you for your work throughout RAI 2016. Our best wishes to you all for future events."
I would like to say thank you to the organisation of the Race. Due to the professional preparation and execution of the Race there were never open questions. I have participated in other ultra races and I know how much effort you must have put in to your organisation. I would highly recommend your race to other racers.
Brilliant event! The RAI team are very committed. Thanks to Alan, Lorraine, Emmet & all the RAI team for the huge amount of work in making the Race Around Ireland such a fantastic (tough!) event & success. It was a brilliant to take part.
