Mallow Floods...Thurs 10th Jan 2008
What a difference 4 days make! Looking at the news today, you begin to realise how lucky we were last Sunday with the weather. 4 days ago, the last half a mile or so of the race was along the Park Road, just before the last corner and the finish. Today, the same road was under 1 metre of water! You begin to think 'what if...?'
What if the heavy rain arrived 4 days earlier?
What if the race was on next Sunday, the 13th of Jan?

I guess that it's always going to be a risk with this race until the civil works go ahead to prevent the flooding.
