Looking ahead to the 2024 Dungarvan 10-mile road race - 4th Feb 2024

West Waterford AC recently announced that they would be holding their hugely popular John Treacy Dungarvan 10-mile road race on Sunday 4th February 2024

Update - 31st Oct 2023 : Entries will open on the 1st of Dec 2023 for Athletics Ireland club members. Entries for anyone open on the 8th of Dec.

Note that this is what happened last year.

1) They increased the number of entries to 3,750 which is a huge amount. That was a 25% increase on the previous year.

2) Members of athletic clubs could enter at the start of December. Note that most runners are not members of a club so it has no chance of selling out at this stage.

3) It opened up to everyone one week later. It then took 3-weeks to sell out.

It's worth noting that the Trim 10-mile in Co Meath is on the same day and that got 1650 runners last February. That might dampen some of the demand for Dungarvan 10-mile entries from runners in Dublin.

The key message to take away from this post is that if you're interested in doing the most popular 10-mile road race in Munster then just be aware that you will need to enter in the next few weeks. If you check for entries in January then it's likely to be closed at that stage. Just keep an eye open for news on the entries and you should have no problem getting in.

If anyone wants to be coached with a 14-wk training plan, I'll be starting Monday. Info HERE
