NEW SPONSOR ANNOUNCED FOR 2017.....The famed Ger Wyley Sports Summer Series heads into its 23rd year this year but with a big change to the title sponsors. Our loyal sponsor and supporter of 23 and more years Ger Wyley has sold on his thriving sports store business to Intersport Elverys. With this change of business ownership comes a change in our summer series title sponsor also.
His support of the Summer Series in particular was significant as he helped to bring in the associate sponsors Fila, Nike, Skins and now his latest deal, bringing together the latest sports retailer and the largest running brand Intersport Elverys and Asics on board as sponsors. This will see the continuation of this great series of road races which have given us all so much pleasure and enjoyment over so many years not to mention the thousands upon thousands of euro raised for various clubs-charity organisations etc as all the 11 races in the programme have one benefactor or another across a wide spectrum around the county.
So looking forward the series' keeps the same format and is the same 11 race summer race program which will be held over the summer months from April to August with a diverse programme of events which holds something in it for everyone, both distance and terrain wise. In thanking Ger above we now welcome on board our brand new double sponsorship of Intersport Elverys/Asics.
The Inter sports Elverys/Asics Summer Series in West Waterford gets under way on Friday 7th April with the 4th Annual M T S Broadband Ballinroad 5k road race. There is an 11 race programme during the summer months, culminating in the GSK 5 mile on Friday August 18th.

RACE ENTRY FEE STILL STAYS AT ONLY 5 EURO....A few years ago the club reduced its race entry fee to 5 euro and the results was increased numbers participating in our events. This year once again indeed for the fifth year in succession we have decided to continue this trend with a 5 euro entry fee for club organised races in the series when you enter online. This is brilliant value and is not repeated by any other race series or race anywhere taking into consideration also that our races are chipped timed with no added cost to you the runner.
Please note if you wait to enter any of the series races until the night of the race you will pay 8 euro for our club organised events, so it basically pays to pre enter for the 5 euro. As as an added incentive this year we are offering a once off payment for all the races in the series listed below for 35 euro including entry to the series itself. Now were talking race value.
The Ballinroad 5k on April 7th
Ardmore 5 Mile on 19th May
Clashmore 5 Mile on 9th June
Dromana 5 Mile on 16th June
Ras Na Rinne 6 Mile on 30th June
Ballymacarbry 5 Mile on 21st July
Marine Climb on 4th August.
The overall prize fund for the series will remain the same as last year and this is achievable with thanks to the generosity of our great sponsors. We will continue with the same prize fund for this year also. As a non-profit making club which has always strived to cater for all levels of participants and promoted itself as having events organised for runners by runners, we know from the feedback that runners appreciated the effort’s being made by our club in this matter and participants from far and near came and supported our events . We're really looking forward to seeing runners of all standards back again this coming summer series. But remember save yourself money and get your online race entry in.
