Update on the Mallow '10' next Sunday...
With the current cold spell, no doubt some of you will be wondering if the Mallow '10' will be cancelled next Sunday or if it will go ahead? The latest info is that the course is in pretty good condition and unless the weather gets worse in the meantime, it will go ahead. A final decision will be made on Saturday afternoon so check then for the latest info.

More details on the Mallow '10' tomorrow but here is some info in the meantime. Note the new start and finish points!

Key Points for participants and spectators.

  • As the numbers have grown by 300% over the past four years, the course has changed as we have been forced to avoid the town centre
  • The start is to the left of the petrol station, just by Davis College. (a few hundred metres from the old start) in a mainly residential area.
  • The finish is now by the roundabout bar on the main Cork/Limerick Road. While this is not ideal we have struggled to find a better option
  • Runners will not be allowed run back out the course once finished
  • Runners will not be allowed use headphones/music players
  • Once leaving the finish area runners will be asked to use the footbridge to cross the road and return to hall
