Notice : Duhallow AC 10 mile road race in Newmarket - Sun 4th March 2018

Since the demise of the Ballycotton 10 mile road race, there has been a gap in the calendar for a fast Spring 10 miler in Cork. To address this, Duhallow AC are now organising a new 10 mile road race on Sunday the 4th of March 2018 in the town of Newmarket in North-West Cork.

The race costs €30 to enter and there will be a dry fit top for the first 700 to register.

The 10 mile route is an out and back course and it can be seen below. Parts of the course will be the same as the Newmarket 5k course which is held every December.

As can be seen above, there is a climb before the 4 mile mark but the last 3 miles are nice and fast.

Seeing as this is a main road out of Newmarket, is the road going to be closed to traffic? If the road is not going to be closed how is the safety of runners going to be guaranteed seeing as there will be runners in both lanes for the majority of the race. I understand this system is used for the annual 5k but a 10 miler is on a different scale.

According to the organisers, traffic will be diverted away from the Newmarket to Ballydesmond road.

Delighted to see Duhallow AC organising this 10 miler, they host a really good 5k every year and knowing the road this is a fast 10 mile route, anyone looking for a time/PB should have a look at this. if they attract the same class of field they get for their 5k it'll be a cracking race. Best of luck to Donie Shine and co with this addition to the calendar.
