Road race - Any Sunday of the year the village of Dungarvan is a tranquil and peaceful place.People attend Mass and return to the safety of their homes. NOT LAST SUNDAY ! A road race organised by Young Irelands GAA Club and Gowran athletics club named The Stook 10 mile Road race, saw over six hundred people gather in the village.Almost three hundred took part in the 10 mile race and a further two hundred entered the 5 mile run / walk. The organizers deserve great praise for the high standards applied to all aspects of the event . A very important contributer to the success of this event was the huge number of volunteers who manned the route, served the food in the hall and served as stewards throughout the day. This was the first Stook Ten Mile Road Race, but speculation is that it might become an annual event. Full Results can be found on line at ; www.totaltiming.ie.
