From West Waterford AC....Wednesday October 30th sees the registration take place for the 2019/20 26th Annual Forde’s Daybreak winter league which will be run over 13 weeks and organised by West Waterford athletic club. 

The event for those few who are not familiar with it caters for all types of runners and especially for those that have never ran before, we provide plenty of advice and encouragement so please don’t feel that you might be the only person trying it for the first time as guaranteed there will be many coming along again this year for the very first time just like you. 

There are 2 distances to choose from and they are commonly known as the long route 5.4 miles and the short route 2.3.miles

Come along on the night and register for whichever route you wish to do. Please bare in mind that you are not stuck with the course you choose at the start, if you wish to change after a while then you may do so. We will be available to answer any questions you may have tonight or any other night. 

There is no official run on registration night, however many people do run the course but there will be no stewards on the course until round 1 which is the official start of the league. If you can’t register on registration night, you can do so the following week or any other night but we do urge as many as possible to come along and register in order to speed up proceedings for the following week. Your cooperation with this matter is much appreciated.

Once-off registration fee of €5

When you register, there will be a fee of €5 to cover the cost of the waterproof number and timing chip attached. This number and chip will be issued to you and you only and it will be your number for the duration of the 13 week league so it’s most important that you have it and wear it every Wednesday night, please pin it to the front of your bib only. This is a once-off fee, payable on the night you get your number and then after that it will be just €2 each night that you run for members and €3 for non-members. 
Last year we introduced a once off payment for the entire league and this was taken up by half of all winter league runners who save themselves some money by doing so. For WWAC 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.
