Waterford...Dungarvan Winter League - Wed 8th Nov 2017 to 7th Feb 2018

24th  ANNUAL "FORDE'S DAYBREAK"WEST WATERFORD ATHLETIC CLUB WINTER LEAGUE.....DUNGARVAN, CO.WATERFORD


Dates....Wednesday 6:50pm
Nov 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th 2017
Dec 6th, 13th & 20th 2017
Jan 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th & 31st 2018
Feb 7th 2018


From West Waterford AC....This league sponsored by Kevin Ford of Forde's Daybreak on the Youghal road is the country’s original winter league and is now proudly in its 24th year and will be held over a period of 13 weeks this year with 7 nights of league running before Christmas and 6 nights after Christmas.

We will have the traditional Christmas break finishing on Wednesday night December 20th, our final league run in 2017, and the league will resume on Wednesday night January 3rd.

Entry will remain the same as previous years 2 Euro per night to members of the club and 3 Euro to non-members. As was the case last year there will be a once off payment on registration night of 5 Euro. This extra amount will be used to cover the cost of purchasing the numbers which are quite expensive but they are waterproof and have to be used each night for the duration of the league. This year for the first time also you can pay for the entire league with a once off payment and save yourself some money by doing so. For club members you can pay 30 euro (this includes the 5 euro once off number payment) and for non members you can pay a once off payment of 40 euro which also includes the 5 euro number payment charge.

The various division positions are made during the Christmas break and will be displayed weekly on our return night in January. 

Remember...
Rule number 1, no bib no run!
Rule number 2, no watches.
Rule number 3 no head phones or any music devices.

With the huge increases in numbers in our recent leagues at the Friary we are expecting big numbers this year for the winter league. We urge all those who did come along to the Friary not to stop running now after making such great strides at the leagues but to continue by taking part in the winter league, you will be glad you did.

With the demise of the Ballycotton 10 mile race in March, there is bound to be more interest in the Dungarvan race. If you want a good 10 mile race in the Spring of 2018, I would suggest that you enter as soon as possible before it closes.

Clonmel Half-Marathon now closed


Entries for the 2017 Clonmel Half-Marathon closed on Wednesday the 16th of August, the first time this race has ever sold out. If you haven't registered already, make sure you don't travel to Clonmel on Sunday looking to enter.

In 2016, they had 690 entries and that included people entering on the morning of the race. With the 800 limit, it's up 16% already and would probably be a good deal more if people could enter on the day.

This race is organised by Clonmel AC and they have grown it slowly but surely over the years. Here is a statement from Niall O'Sullivan of the club..."We are excited to announce the Boston Scientific Marathon is a sell out, with a grand total of 800 entrants! Registration is now officially closed, with no further entries taken online or on the weekend of the race!"
