Xmas Party

A great night was had at the annual Xmas Party nigh out in Rosie's last Saturday night.

Brian Harty after competing in the National Novice Cross Country Championships in Waterford on Sunday where he had a fantastic run. Full results


Please Pass The Word

Following consultation with An Garda Síochána and Waterford City Council and the upgrading of storm warnings throughout the country to status red it is with great regret that we must postpone tomorrows Waterford AC Half Marathon which was due to take place at 10am on Saturday December 5th.
The decision was made as a matter of health and safety. Although no parts of the course are currently flooded and despite the efforts of Waterford City Council today to clear flooding and repair damage caused by heavy rain yesterday, the potential for further flooding overnight is high.
Forecasts for the South East are not as severe as the rest of the country however with status red warnings in place in other counties we are conscious that we did not want people traveling in unsafe conditions tomorrow.
The event is currently rescheduled to take place on the new date of Saturday, 9th January 2016.
For participants that can make the new date your same number a chip will be valid.
For participants unable to make this date we will be offering refunds. You can apply for your refund through the following form…/. Please note refunds will not be processed until January.
With the postponement of an event this large there comes a large amount of administration and financial cost to Waterford AC. We also understand the inconvenience and potential costs incurred by people that had planned to take part and support our event. We hope you will understand and bear with us as we work through the arrangements.

Best of luck to everyone running this weekend .Most of the activity takes place in Waterford where we have a large crew doing the Waterford Half Marathon on Saturday and a few doing the National Novice Cross Country on Sunday.


Don't forget our Xmas Party takes place in Rosies on Sat night at 8pm. You can still go even if you have not already put down your name there are a few places left. Just turn up and give Bernie your money and enjoy the night.
