22nd Annual John Treacy Dungarvan 10
At a photo launch last Saturday afternoon in the beautiful surround’s of Walton Park in the presence of John Treacy and Dungarvan Deputy town Mayor Cllr Nicky Sheehan along with race sponsors and club committee members, West Waterford Athletic Club announced details of the 22nd Annual John Treacy Dungarvan 10 Mile Road Race.
The event now in its 22nd year 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 race has grown year on year and is a pre entry race only with the close date January 14th for the January 27th 2013 race or when 1.750 entries is reached. West Waterford Athletic Club is delighted with the local support from the towns governing bodies Dungarvan Town Council and Waterford County Council.
To stage such a big event of course requires good sponsors and we are fortunate to have the support of the local authorities, Go Dungarvan, Glaxosmithkline, Dungarvan Shopping Centre, Glanbia, Optimum Nutrition, Tipperary Water, Flahavan’s, Déise Design, Nike Ireland along with many other local businesses and individuals who are all giving valuable support helping to make the day a great occasion for the town of Dungarvan.
Introduced to the event two years ago the John Treacy Club Challenge Cup for men’s and ladies teams is proving to be highly successful. We will again be calling on all the athletic clubs of Ireland to take on the challenge in the 2013 event.
The John Treacy Dungarvan 10 bring’s together the ideal race combination of fun runners, joggers, club athletes and top class internationals who compete over a fast flat 10 mile course around the historic town of Dungarvan as we all look forward to an even bigger and better event on January 27th next.
