  John Treacy Dungarvan 10 Mile
Dungarvan, Ireland
29 January, 2012

In 2011, a special John Treacy Team Challenge was introduced to find the fastest team in Ireland over 10 miles. For 2012, clubs are once again called upon to enter this competitive event. Why not test yourselves against the best club teams in Ireland? Teams must consist of 3 runners from the same athletic club.

There will be a separate men’s and ladies competition and the 3 combined finish times will determine the winners. John himself will be on hand to present the prizes to the winning teams. Once again €4000 in prize money will be given out along with a course record bonus if the men’s or ladies records are broken!
