Entry list for the 2016 Ballycotton 10 now online....
You can see the full list in order of entry number HERE
The list in alphabetical order of surname is HERE
There is also a list on this spreadsheet HERE of all the club entries. It might be handy for clubs that was to see who from their own club entered. Just copy and paste your club entries to your club Facebook page or website.
In total, there are 3583 entries this year which is down slightly on last year. Based on previous years, there should be roughly 2600 taking part next March.
The one big change this year is the percentage of club entries. Last year, 34.4% of all those entered were members of an athletics club. This year, that jumps to 45.7% which is a significant amount. As for why the jump?? In December 2014, club runners had an option of a two week window for postal entries. In December 2015, club runners could avail of an online option to get in. It might make things easier but it hardly explains the large jump. There is no obvious jump in club membership that would account for it.
