Looking ahead to the 2019 Dungarvan 10 mile road race...Sun 3rd Feb 2019

The big race in Munster this weekend of course is the Dungarvan 10 mile road race and there are well over 1000 runners from Cork making the journey. The entry list is HERE

The weather conditions for the race look like it will be around 7-8 deg C with a breeze from the west. The big question is whether a rain bearing weather front will pass over during the race?

In terms of race conditions, it's probably going to feel pretty chilly. With that westerly breeze, the 7 deg C may feel like 4-5 deg C.

A short sleeve top might be ok if you are racing. A long sleeve top with maybe a singlet over it if your aim is just to get around.

As for the wind, it's likely to be from the west. Out on the course, it's likely to be a headwind between miles 3 and 5. Otherwise, I'd expect it won't be a major factor.

As for the course, it is the same as last year. The preview can be seen  here...
