Race notice...Dungarvan 10 mile road race - Sun 27th Jan 2013

This race may seem as if it's a while off yet but the entries are rapidly filling up! The John Treacy Dungarvan 10 mile road race is one of the most popular races in Munster and for good reason. Only ten years ago, this race attracted a field of 223 runners. The organisers of the race West Waterford AC have built it up steadily year after year as they have gained experience at holding a large event such as this.

It is for me now one of the best races in Munster and I'd put it on a par with the Ballycotton '10'. Considering that it is just a one hour drive from Cork City and with plenty of parking, this is a viable alternative for anyone that can't get into the Ballycotton '10' race.

The race is limited to 1,750 entries. The entry fee is €20 and that includes a dri-fit top. The price increases after the 14th of January but you don't have to worry about that as it will be full long before then.

If you are interested in doing this race then enter now! Don't wait until the new year as it will be too late. They have over 1,000 entries already and it's filling up fast.
