As a club we aim to provide value for money in all of the 65 events we host each year. This would not be possible without the generosity and support of our sponsors. For this race we are very fortunate to have the support and partnership of businesses that are associated not only with the Greenway but share our passion for sports, health and well-being within the community.
Eurofins is a first-class bio-pharmaceutical outsourcing services partner (Contract Research Organization – CRO, Contract Development & Manufacturing Organization – CDMO), working with pharmaceutical, chemical, biotechnology, medical device and cosmetic clients. The Group covers the whole chain of drug development thanks to an international network of laboratories and testing units with global reach, uniform QA systems and high quality services.

Sólás Na Mara Seaweed Baths
Sólás Na Mara Seaweed Baths, Helbhic, An Rinn, is a wellness centre located in Waterford’s stunning coastal scenery, which utilises the health benefits of the pristine Irish sea with modern physio and therapeutic facilities to promote a truly organic and regenerative healthcare experience for athletes, sports enthusiasts, those seeking recovery from illness or those simply wishing to unwind.
Known to all athletes in the region as the first stop for sports therapy and relief from injury in the build up to races. This facility was also built with recovery in mind and the seaweed baths are the ‘secret weapon’ of many an athlete in accelerating recovery.
We are delighted to have Sólás na Mara as an associate sponsor of our category prizes and the winners can look forward to a relaxing and invigorating experience at this wellness centre.
Coach House Coffee
In 2019 we welcomed Coach House Coffee on board as an associate event sponsor.
Located just off the Greenway at the historic Famine Workhouse in Kilmacthomas, Coach House Coffee is THE place to stop and refuel on the Greenway. It was an instant hit when it opened in March 2017 and comes highly recommended for ethically sourced Coffee, Cake or Lunch.
We are delighted to welcome Monkeycups on board as a new sponsor for 2019. Monkeycups are a Waterford based company with a passion to turn the tide on single use plastic waste that is invading our environment. They have created a reusable, fun alternative and we have lots of them to give away to some lucky athletes on the day. Each monkeycup when used regularly can potentially save 442 single plastic disposable cups a year from ending up in landfill. Get on board by joining the revolution at www.monkeycups.ie and support local to support the environment.

As local a business as you will get on the Greenway. The headquarters of Flahavans are a mere stone’s throw from the start line and can be seen as you pass over the picturesque viaduct in Kilmacthomas. Flahavans are a great supporter of West Waterford Athletic Club and have once again come on board as an associate sponsor. They have been milling oats in Kilmacthomas for over 200 years and a bowl of porridge is the fuel of choice for athletes pre-race for many of those years. As well as sponsoring the race on race day they will also be providing post-race glycogen replacement in the form of their highly popular flapjacks.
The official start of the Waterford Greenway is the base for Eurospar, Abbeyside who once again have come up trumps to provide much needed water and bananas for all athletes at the finish line.
