Info for the 2018 Mallow 10 mile road race coming up on Sun 25th March 2018



Weather forecast......It looks like that it will be a bright sunny day for this years Mallow 10 mile road race. There may be some clouds but there should be plenty of sunshine as well.

There is a light breeze from the North-West which is likely to keep things a bit cool, especially in exposed areas. On the course, it is likely to be a headwind from 2 to 4 miles. From 4 to 6.5 miles, it will be a headwind as well but there will be some shelter from the hills to the north.

The most significant impact is that it will be behind the runners in the last 3 miles so it won't have much of a cooling effect. It is likely to feel very warm along this stretch.

If you are racing then nothing more than a singlet or a short sleeve dry fit top is recommended. Anyone wearing too much will pay for it in the later stages. If you feel slightly cold at the start line then that is the right amount of clothing to wear.





Now that the annual Mallow 10 mile road race is coming up next Sunday the 25th of March 2018, I have just updated the race website with all the latest info.
