Updated Fri 13th July..... All of the original  750 places are gone. As of this morning, West Waterford AC have made an additional places available. Click on the link above and enter asap if you want to do this half-marathon.

There is a limit of 750 entries this year and it will open on Monday the 2nd of July at 9am.

The new Greenway which runs from Waterford City to Dungarvan follows the route of the old railway line and opened in 2017. With a combination of mountain and coastal views, it has been really popular with walkers, runners and cyclists.

This Greenway goes from Kilmacthomas to Dungarvan going across several viaducts and through the 400 metre long Ballyvoile tunnel. This video below gives a flavour of what the greenway is like.

This is likely to fill up fast so don't delay entering if you are interested.

This race is organised by West Waterford AC and they have all the info up on their website HERE
