Hi all just to inform you that the AnneValley 5 Mile Challenge will be on
Saturday the 11th of February 2017 at 12noon
This is now the 11th year of the race (it's actually the tenth year of the 5 mile race, as the very first AnneValley was a 10k) and once again we look forward to having everybody back in Dunhill, Co. Waterford. This year again we are keeping our online price at €10, to say Thank You for your continued support.
Dont forget our juvenile race which will start just before the main event, this is a great 1km race for all our future stars, registration for this will be on the day in Harneys.
Also each year we have a walking event, so you really have no excuse not to turn up and take part on the day. Registration for this also takes part on the day in Harneys.
Everybody is more then welcome to hang around and enjoy the chat afterwards, which can be done over some refreshments, which won't disappoint.
The history so far, the AnneValley started out as a 10km run in 2007, which saw 91 runners complete the route. In 2008 we changed to a 5 Mile route, with the numbers up to 179 finishers, since then we have hit over the 300 mark each year, with our biggest entry at 483 runners in 2013. Last year 2016 saw 408 runner complete the course. And we had some fast times too with the course record for the mens at 25:11 set by Philip Harty in 2013, and the womens at 30:22 set by Mags Kirwan-Bolger in 2012, this was run close in 2015 by a local girl Orna Murray who finished in 30:27. What will 2017 bring, let the battle for the eleventh title being and hopefully bring with it two new course records...
The route is the same (Click here to see the route!), a nice scenic 5 miles, and the refreshments afterwards are going to be as good as ever. Looking forward to seeing you on the 11th...Runners, walkers and Juveniles...
