Quick look ahead to the Dungarvan 10.....Sun 30th Jan 2010

The big race in Munster next weekend is of course the Dungarvan 10 mile in Waterford. The organisers have got around 1,300 entries for this race and it is now closed. There will be no entries taken on the day.

Only a few years ago, this race only attracted a few hundred runners. The organisers, West Waterford AC have built on it year after year until it is now one of the main 10 mile road races in the country. This of course didn't happen by accident. They put on a well organised event every year and this is reflected in the fact that people keep going back.

At this stage, all entrants should have received their race packs by post. The main item in this is the race number which also contains a timing chip. This should be worn on the front of your singlet.

For general info on the race, the organisers have an excellent website HERE

What I am going to concentrate on here are additional details that may not be so obvious on the race website.
You should be able to click on the map above to get a larger image. This is to give you some idea of where the start point, the finish point and the sport hall are located.

Directions...if you are coming from the Cork direction on the main N25 road, you will need to turn right at the first roundabout at the entrance to the town. As you drive through Dungarvan, you will see a church on the right.....

Take the right just after the church and the Sports Centre is just down this road.

Please note that unless you arrive early, parking in this area may be full. There are plenty of other areas to park in the town.

Sports Hall to Start Line......1 km
Finish Line to Sports Hall......1.5 kms

More tomorrow when we have a closer look at the course.
