Notice...Dungarvan 10 mile road race, Waterford - Sun 31st Jan 2016

Now as we head towards the end of 2015, it's time to look ahead to the Spring of 2016 and what lies ahead. 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 31st of January 2016. 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 this year and it will almost certainly close well before race day. 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 January 31st 2016. 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).

West Waterford Athletic Club is delighted with the support it receives from its sponsor for this event. We are fortunate to have the support of the local authorities, Glaxosmithkline, Tipperary Water, Flahavan’s, Déise Design, Go Dungarvan smarter travel, Nike,Ger Wyley Sports  along with many other local businesses and individuals who are all giving valuable support helping to make the day a great occasion for the town of Dungarvan. The race also incorporates the popular John Treacy Club Challenge Cup for men’s and ladies teams which has proved to be hugely competitive. We will again be calling on all the athletic clubs of Ireland to take on the challenge in the 2016 event.

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 January 31st 2016. Don't be disappointed as many were last year get your entry in soon.
