Nominations for the best 10m and half-marathon race in Cork & Munster in 2016???

Now that the new year has started, it's time to look back and consider what were the best races of the year? In this post, we'll look at the best 10 mile and half-marathon races.

As some of the really big races like the Dungarvan 10 are outside Cork but attract a lot of Cork runners, we'll include nominations for any race in Cork and Munster. In your opinion, what were the best 10m and 10k races in 2016 and why?


Leave a comment and we'll start the poll very soon.

Ballynonty 10 Mile Tipperary - For the price alone €10 for 10 mile, Great feed afterwards and ideal preparation for someone getting ready for the Dublin marathon or training for a half marathon

What a fantastic ten mile they have up there in Ballynonty. They are so friendly to everyone up there. Great course too.

best half has to be the Clonmel Half marathon, good fair course, fantastically organized and savage food afterwards.
best 10mile would be the John Treacy in Dungarvan

Blackwater 10 mile, Clondulane. Scenic course, virtually closed roads, fantastic party atmosphere in the village green afterwards. Ideal prep a few weeks out from Cork Marathon.

Charleville Half.

The great island ten (when it was eventually run due to the weather) was a super race as usual.

John Buckley 10 mile race in Cork last year was the best most enjoyable race I had last year, absolutely fantastic on a lovely Saturday evening. Half marathon vote goes to Clonmel, 2nd time doing it. Good price nice t-shirt and goodie bag and feed after. Really child friendly had entertainment on for the kids.

John Buckley 10mile was good, nice flat course and the Clonmel half was very enjoyable great atmosphere after.

John Buckley 10 and Waterford Half (Jan and Dec editions!) were both excellent but I think the Great Island 10 is a really good challenging race. It is well organised and supported and you really know you have run 10 miles afterwards!
