Sign up for More Information

Wanted - Stewards, Helpers, Competitors and more - sign up to receive more information

The St. Patrick's Coast Ride requires numerous people to help to ensure it runs as planned and safely.

We have a general mailing list of people interested in helping, or riding, sponsoring or other involvement, where you can sign up for more information. We will not spam you with relentless junk but will keep you posted of updates and other news affecting the ride and your possible involvement.

Please feel free to add your name to the list, you can remove your name at any time as well so no commitment....

Without stewards to man checkpoint, road crossings and crew points ,etc, the ride just can not happen so if you are a rider join the list as well and if you can persuade a friend or colleague, maybe family member, to help on the day we, and all other riders, would be most grateful.

Please note that by signing you are just asking to be kept up to date with information - you are NOT making a commitment to help - we hope that will come later.

Thank You

All Horses and Ponies attending this ride must have a valid passport and up to date Flu Vaccination. No Exceptions
