We recognise as has been our club’s policy always that all races organised by our club will appeal to the fun runner as much as the elite athlete, This event will have something for everyone for all level’s of runners that’s our commitment. Mel Shanley and Jerdi Mackey along with Finbarr Dunphy company director have given the Dungarvan 10 a huge boost with their sponsorship and along with their commitment to this sponsorship over the coming years all involved are really excited about where this race is going with big plans for next year’s event and for future years. Much work is going on behind the scenes for the day and we can at this stage promise that there will be something for all levels of runners, Elie, club runner, Fun runner, Beginner’s all will be catered for as is our clubs policy. So if you’re a regular running each week keep up the good work, If you’re a semi retired runner dust off the old shoes, If you’re a beginner why not target the 10 miler on 3rd February as your main goal for the new year, Follow the trend as Vivas Health is encouraging all runners to take control of their health and fitness by entering the Dunphy Vivas Health 10 on Sunday February 3rd 2008.


The race is pencilled in for Sunday February 3rd 2008,and at a quite enough time of the year for local Hotels, B and B’s Restaurants etc, this race will also give the town and surrounding area’s a much needed boost when runners from all parts descend on the town for the event.
