20220206 - Race Report (John Treacy)

20220206 – John Treacy

There under starters orders… And there off 😊

It’s been a long time since many of us heard the gun on the start line of a road race and there were over 2,400 runners made their way to Dungarvan on Sunday morning for the John Treacy Dungarvan 10-mile road race in anticipation of just that. There was a buzz around West Waterford despite the damp and windy weather conditions and the air of anticipation was palpable for an 11am start.

Youghal AC were well represented with 33 runners making their way over the county bounds for the first major road race off 2022, hopefully the first of many in this post Covid-19 era. The green and white hooped singlets were being donned by many desperate to put their lockdown training to the test – some chasing PB’s, some looking to shift the dreaded ‘Covid Stone’, some in search of some camaraderie and chats around the course and more just to be called home by local legend Martin ‘Coach’ Drake.

The support of family, friends and clubmates on the sides of roads was fantastic and much appreciated.
