As and from December 1st entries will open for the 30th Annual John Treacy Dungarvan 10 which will be held on Sunday February 6th 2022, with a new start time of 11.am.
This race is a permitted A.A.I. event and this year we will open 1 week earlier on Wednesday 24th November to A.A.I. club members. You just need your Life Membershipe number to enter. Remaining places will then go on offer on the 1st December.
West Waterford Athletic Club are delighted to announce details of the event which has established itself as a must run race on the Irish road running calendar with participants from all four corners of the country and beyond participating. The entry fee for this year’s race is €30. The race has grown year on year and is a pre-entry race which will close when 3,000 entries is reached. ( please note this race was full in a very short time last year ). All race numbers will be posted out the week prior to the event, and there will be strictly no entry on the day. The prize fund for 2022 is €6,000 in cash.
Charity for 2022
For the past 4 years we have chosen a charity for you the runners to support and to date we have raised over €10,000 for some great causes. For 2022 our chosen charity is Breast Cancer Ireland. We all know someone who has been on this journey or someone who is fighting it now so if you could please support in any small way we would be so grateful. As always we will top up the final figure with proceeds from the run. Here is some information on Breast Cancer Ireland.
