Looking ahead to the Mallow 10 race next Sunday 22nd Mar 2015

Just a quick look ahead to the Mallow 10 mile road race next Sunday the 22nd of March 2015.

Weather......The current forecast is that it will be a mild dry day with a gentle breeze from the south-west. Should be a mixture of clouds and sunshine. Conditions should be pretty good for running fast times although it may feel a little warm if there is a lot of sunshine. It's forecast to be about 10-12 deg C.

Almost certainly, you shouldn't be wearing layers of clothes. At the recent Ballycotton 10 race, it was obvious from the photos that some of the newer slower runners were wearing way too much. Full length leggings and jackets are a no-no. If you wear just enough so that you feel slightly cold at the start line then that's about right.

As you can see from the map above, the course is much the same as last year except that that start line is closer to race HQ while the finish line is further away.

The map below shows where everything is.....

You can find maps and a preview of the course here...

All the info about pacers, chip timing, etc is up on the race website...
