Results of the Mallow 10 mile road race...Sun 23rd Mar 2014

Conditions were almost ideal for this year's Mallow 10 mile road race and the host club Mallow AC put on a fine show.

Looking at some quick stats, 961 runners took part. That means that there were 21.1% no shows. Not as high as the 28% or so that there were with Ballycotton but I'd guess you'd expect that considering that the closing date was later and it was much easier to get in....i.e. less of a panic.

The percentage of women finishers was 39.9% which is very much in line with Dungarvan with 41% and Ballycotton with 38.4%.

As usual another excellent Mallow 10 race. The amount of behind the scenes work put in by club members has paid off in spades. Great goody bag, great pacing and great spread and stewarding.

A special Thanks to the 80 Pacers who dragged me across the line 4 secs under 80, giving me a new PB. I could not have done it without them.

Totally agree. Take a bow Mallow AC. So well organised. Plenty of stewards, bottles of water, not cups! Lots of support. A lot of clubs could take a leaf out of Mallow AC's book. Always look forward to this race, and this is reflected by how well this race is organised every year

Well done Mallow on a super organised and friendly run today

I am not sure what is happening with results as I was just behind Joan Ennis (67.21), no-one between us and on results Anne Wolfe is in between the 2 of us. Also Sharon Woods came after us also and she is now in front of us. Can someone explain why? Thanks. Clotilde Fitzgibbon

Great race really enjoyed it will be back next year. Just one question about t shirts that they are going to send out. How will they work out the sizes for each individual.

Matt Midleton AC said...

Big thanks to 65 pacers, you made it possible for me today, great support all way. Race fantastic as usual.

Keith S said...

Have to agree with the consensus, one of the best organised races this year to date - take a bow Mallow AC all round , also the sub 65 pacers did what it said on the tin , they paced properly. Superb.

Great day - well done all.

Another well organised race in Mallow, it really is an ideal location for a ten mile race. Easy parking, nice wide start and the water bottles were perfect.
Well done to all @ Mallow AC.

First time doing Mallow, will definitely be back. Great support and the pacers were excellent. Too top it off a lovely goody bag and a note to say they are posting out a proper dry fit top in a few weeks. Hats off to Mallow AC

Derek said...

If there is ever a vote for best 10miler I think Mallow will beat all. Great race. Well done to Mallow ac for all the hard work.

Brilliant race. Well done to the organizers. I would like to thank the 65 minute pacers who did a fantastic job and encouraged us the whole way. Will be back next year.

John Kissane said...

Great race again this year, kudos to Mallow AC for a great event.

Well done to Mallow AC -a terrific race and well organised. The bottled water was great too and loads of grub afterwards.

One suggestion I'd make is for there to be two tables in parallel to collect thr food from, as there were people at the back of tge food tables who had full plates but were still waitibg in the same queue to get up to the tea and coffee, which slowed everything down.

Other than that, my time and 'chip' time are the same in the provisional results -which is definitely not the case -my chip time should be 18 seconds faster. I guess why they're called proclvisional but I see others have different chip and gun times -so maybe my chip start time was never recorded?

great race again this year. Ballycotton has the long, distinguished tradition and it's well deserved. Mallow and Dungarvan offer something different with a faster route, less hassle with access and excellent facilities. Mallow might now even trump the other two in my opinion. excellent organisation and stewarding en route. great goodie bag and the cotton t shirt isn't bad. back again in 2015 fir sure. well done to all finishers.

Anne Wolfe said...

Replying to Clotilde Fitzgibbons comment. I think maybe the chip mats were very sensitive. I couldnt run today as I hurt my hamstring so I cycled the course as support. My race pack was in my bag and although I didnt go over the timing chip mats, maybe it sensed me and I got a time. I am sending a mail to the race directors. Apologies for the confusion. Cant explain the rest of your comment.

Thanks mallow Ac for a great race, the pacers on 85 mins were brilliant and i even got a new bp of just under 84 mins. i will be back next year. The weather was just perfect too and the amount of people cheering people was fantastic. plenty of food & chat back and the youth centre, what more does a person need.

Thank you to all in Mallow AC for a really great race - so well organized in every way and it started bang on time too!! Thanks to the great team in the hall afterwards for the lovely tea and sandwiches. Definitely the friendliest event I've ever run in, great support along the route also - thank you!

What can I say Fantastic Fantastic. Mallow AC you should be so proud of yourselves.
The best organised race I ever ran. See you next year.

Sounds like a great day folks well done to all concerned,as a runner who missed the deadline(own fault entirely) may I please ask the organisers why the race is restricted to 1000 runners given the comments above about big wide roads great stewarding e.t.c and the BC10 averages around 2500.
Thank you in advance
Ed

How come a female junior (finishing position 626) was allowed compete officially in an AAI sanctioned/permitted event?

Flawless race lads and so well organised. The sandwiches and cuppa afterwards were excellent. A lot of other races could learn from Mallow AC.

Hi

In response to Ed's post earlier this morning - the cut off was 1200 not 1000 (see blog post below).
http://corkrunning.blogspot.ie/2014/02/entry-list-for-mallow-10-mile-road-race.html

Having had some experience organising races in the past with a few clubs I can only speak from experience. I would surmise that there is a health and safety element, a desire to put on the best race possible and allowing more than the 1200 might compromise these goals. There is a always a limited number of support services available and should the Gardai/civil defence be called away on the day you could have issues
No roads are closed for the event so it's testament to the organisation that it can take this kind of racers.

I would also say a club like Mallow has done the right thing and built up to this number, not jumped in at teh deep end - maybe they will aim for 1500 next year - who knows.

I would also say that the club earn little from it financially when all the bills are paid. Food/refreshments afterwards are probably supplied free of charge by club members - well done Mallow !!

Bob.

I can tell you that mallow ac make little from it. the last numbers of years they lost money on the race. profit margins are no more than a couple of 100 euro. it costs over 20 grand to run the event

Eugene Cosgrove said...

Mallow AC must be complimented on an excellent 10 Mile Run in the town on Sunday. The prganising of this event is as always excellent and it is surely an enjoyable few hours for the athletes, serious and fun runners for the general public and local press who are honoured to record the great event,

A great race Mallow AC Except what did ye do about the 50 + headphone wearers
NOTHING These were banned in your information sheet yet they were allowed to pass by all of your stewards unhindered. There was loads of traffic on the course I saw one headphone wearer run for at least 200mtrs outsidethe hard shoulder on the Killarney road oblivious to cars flying by. Why say they are banned if you choose to do nothing about. A clap on the back for a great race otherwise.

D S Doneraile said...

Congratulations to all involved with Mallow AC. Great day! Everything spot on!

Why not could she not have been 19? Are your sure it is 626 looks like a male in the results.

Anonymous said...

Very true about the earphone wearers Maybe they can be identified from the many photos and now disqualified and sent no T shirts. That would teach them to obey the rjles of the race in future.

Kevin Boag said...

Fab day out great stewards/water station personnel and supporters.
Food was great and everyone very friendly. Well done Mallow AC.

The headphone wearers- that old chesnut. They aren't supposed to wear them but could you imagine the chaos that would ensue if they were pulled off the course in the middle of a race? Most races never actually punish the offenders

I cycle the ring of kerry yearly as well as being a runner.
last year we streamed thro a vetting area where anyone with no helmet or without an entry badge on their bike was turned back.
No complaints, they organised it, they paid for road closures and so had the right to say who did or did not go on.
Same with a race, at some point where there is a turn onto a closed road, have some stewards stop anyone with headphones. If one or two races did it then the word would go out and this practise would stop..

Anonymous said...

Its very simple really dont allow the headphone wearers to start the race. They are not insured .What happens if they are in or cause an accident as could have easily happened on the busy Mallow roads as a previous poster mentioned. Any comment from Mallow AC

The rule is clear. Black and white. Disqualify headphone wearers.
