Notice...Dungarvan 10 mile road race in West Waterford - Sun 5th Feb 2017

Now as we head towards the end of 2016, it's time to look ahead to the Spring of 2017. This is the traditional season for 10 mile road races in Munster and the four big ones are Ballycotton, Dungarvan, Mallow and Cobh.

The first one up is the John Treacy Dungarvan 10 mile road race on Sunday the 5th of February 2017. This is one of the best road races in Munster and it attracts runners from all over the country.

Please note there is an entry limit of 2,500 and it will almost certainly close in October. As of the 6th of October, it was at 1700 entries.

The entry fee is €25 and that includes a Nike dry-fit running top. It really is an excellent top and better than most you'd get in any race.

If you are interested in doing this race then I would strongly urge you to enter as soon as possible. While it doesn't sell out as fast as the Ballycotton 10 race, it does sell out earlier every year. Decide if you're doing it and enter.

Here are some details from the organising club West Waterford AC...Entries are now open for the 25th Annual John Treacy Dungarvan 10 which will be held on Sunday February 5th 2017. West Waterford Athletic Club have announced details of the event which has established itself as a must run race on the Irish road running calendar with participants from all four corners of the country and beyond participating. The race has grown year on year and is a pre entry race which will close when 2,500 entries is reached. (please note this race was full in a very short time last year).

The John Treacy Dungrvan 10 brings together the ideal race combination of fun runners, joggers, club athletes and top class internationals who compete over a fast flat 10 mile course around the historic town of Dungarvan ,we look forward to welcoming you to our town on February 5th 2017. Don't be disappointed as many were last year get your entry in soon.
