Dungarvan 10 mile entries open on Thurs 1st Dec 2022...

The John Treacy Dungarvan 10-mile road race will be held on Sunday the 5th of February 2023 and now is the time to look at some key dates. 

Thursday 1st December 2022: Entries open for athletic club members. You will need your AI membership number for this. The entry fee is €30 and there may be additional registration fees.

The entry link is via Event Master and it opens at 8am - Enter HERE

Thursday 8th December 2022: Entries open for everyone. The entry fee is again €30 but non-club runners will have to pay the new Athletics Ireland 'One-Day Licence' which costs an additional €2.

Entries will remain open until the limit of 3,750 is reached.


History & Analysis... The first thing is not to get in a panic about entering. In 2019, all 3,000 places were snapped up in 3-hours. 

In 2021, entries opened a week early for club runners with the non-club runners entering a week later. Even with that, it still took 27-hours to fill all 3,000 places.

This year, the numbers of entries has gone from 3,000 up to 3,750. Despite the impression some people might give, the vast majority of runners out there are not members of an athletics club.

As long as you're ready to enter on the morning of the 8th of December then you should have no problem getting in.

Training Programme: For anyone interested, I am currently running a training programme which started a few week ago. If anyone is interested in a shorter programme at a reduced price then let me know. We only have 9-weeks from the 4th of December so we don't have much time to work with.
