Race notice...Mallow 10 mile road race - Mon 18th Mar 2013

Following on from the Dungarvan '10' and with entries to the Ballycotton 10 now closed, the next big ten mile race in Munster after that is the Mallow 10 mile road race on Monday, the 18th of March 2012 at 12:30pm.

Sponsored by Kostal Ireland and organised by Mallow AC, this race attracted 1088 runners last year (2011 = 750) and they are going to limit it at the 1200 mark this year. Located in north Cork, Mallow is within easy reach of runners in all of the counties in Munster.

If you are living say closer to Dublin, Mallow isn't the long slow trip that it would have been before. It's now motorway all the way to Mitchelstown and you then turn off for Mallow. The Mallow '10' is a reasonably fast 10 mile course with a wide start so if you are looking a fast time, this is as good as they come....for Ireland anyway! ;o)

Entries.......It costs just €15 to pre-enter this race. There will be no entries on the day. Note that entries are coming in fast already so don't wait for the last moment to enter. If you are going to do it then enter online asap. There will be the usual chip timing and a €3,000 prize fund with prizes in all the usual categories.

You can enter online using Active Global HERE or you can find the entry form HERE and post your entry in
