Anne Valley 5 mile

Saturday 6th February, Waterford

It's getting close to race day for the winner of our "Short Distance Race of Year", the Anne Valley 5 mile in Waterford on 6th February. This year is the 10th anniversary of the race, which is another fine example of a small community that comes together to provide a really good quality event.

Discount Entry:

As it's their 10th anniversary, the organising committee are offering discounted entry price for all online entrants of €10. And procees from the race go towards the Jack & Jill foundation. (They raised €6k last year, see press release here)


Based on previous years, you can expect to join roughly 400 runners on the day. The course has a fast downhill start, but be prepared for a tough finish when you return uphill. Here's a link to the route on Strava. This is definitely good training for anyone doing Ballycotton in March.

  1. The last half mile is all downhill, so regardless, you'll also look good finishing...and we'll have some tea, soup and a nice bit of cake waiting for you in Harney's as soon as you finish...
