01.09.2015: Statement from Achill Roar organisers Outfront Events:
To Whom It May Concern,
As many of you may know, 'The Achill Roar' will take place this Saturday, September 5th. At Outfront Events, we would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the local farmers for facilitating this event.
With parts of the mountain-run section passing through open farmland populated by livestock, 'The Roar' would simply not be possible without the goodwill and support of the farmers affected.
Following a frank, but productive review of the event with these farmers, we would also like to offer a genuine apology for any misunderstandings or oversights that have arisen in previous years.
We have promised to ensure these do not reoccur and now look forward to a long, fruitful relationship in the years ahead.
A main area of concern was the disturbance of the livestock. In light of this, we ask participants to please treat the animals and the land they inhabit with the utmost respect. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
We look forward to seeing you all there on Saturday and hope that 'The Achill Roar' will continue to go from strength to strength.
