West Waterford A.C. has a large number of juvenile athletes entered for this event. A bus will leave the Park Hotel @7.00am on Sunday morning. If you are travelling by car please be at the venue by 10am as it always takes longer to park and get numbers on a championship day.  We would like our athletes to have plenty of time to walk the course and warm up before their races.
