Notice...Dungarvan 10 mile road race in West Waterford - Sun 4th Feb 2018

The annual John Treacy Dungarvan 10 mile road race will be held on Sunday the 4th of February 2018 at 1:30pm and it sells out every year. Please note that entries opened at 9am on Wednesday the 1st of November 2017.

Update Mon 1st Nov @3pm......Online entries are now closed! In previous years, this race has taken a few weeks to sell out. This year, it just took a few hours.

Last week, the notice I put up on the Running in Cork Facebook page got over 17,000 views so I knew the demand would be really high. I didn't expect it to sell out in hours though.

Update Mon 1st Nov @11:36am : Entries for this are flying in which resulted in some website problems. The entry link is

With the demise of the Ballycotton 10 mile race in March, there is bound to be more interest in the Dungarvan race. If you want a good 10 mile race in the Spring of 2018, I would suggest that you enter as soon as possible before it closes.

The entry fee for 2018 is €25 and that includes a high quality Nike dry-fit top. There are no refunds on race entry fees. As in previous years, there will be no late entries except for elite entries, which will be taken up to Friday January 29th 2018.

This is one of the best road races in Munster and it attracts runners from all over the country. There is a limit of 2,750 entries and it will sell out.

Alot of disappointed runners. Site was jammed. I think eventually events like this will have good for age times like Boston.
