Results & photos of the 2017 Mallow 10 mile road race...Sun 26th March 2017

The weather was stunning for this years Mallow 10 mile road race with blue skies and sunshine for the race. As predicted, it made things a bit uncomfortable in sections where the temperatures seemed really high when the wind was to our backs.

In the closing few miles. the wind had a cooling effect but it was strong enough. Add in the odd few drags and I think a lot of people suffered in the closing stages.

Overall day, a great race and really well organised by Mallow AC.

Definitely quite tough out there today in the last few miles with wind in patches and a few drags

This is a top quality event. Very well organised, plenty of stewards, great spread afterwards plus a lovely souvenir top. Well done to all in Mallow AC.

Great really we run event and really happy it went well for Mallow AC after the horrible accident last year.

I managed to leave an old-type garmin hr strap on the window sill the changing room to the side of the stage in case anyone came across it.

Well done to Mallow AC. Take a bow. So so very well organised. I needed a hand with something afterwards and a gentleman from Mallow AC went out of his way to help me out. Thank you. See ye next year ��

Hi John,

I think your comments summed up the event very well. Mallow A/C did a great job with the organisation. Unlike the recent Ballycotton 10 event, thankfully, we had the two water stations, and a bottle of water on the finish line. We sure needed water today!

A good size field too. Room for those of all ability levels.

It was my first time taking part in this event, and I really enjoyed the run.

This event was so well organised, every last detail was thought right through. I can't recommend Mallow 10 highly enough. I've been to hundreds of races over many years and this one comes out top. No doubt I'll be coming back lads a let's not forget all these hard working ladies at the food and beverage tables, told ye I'd leave feedback...from a Tipp man.

Super run by Michelle Finn today. Aoife Cooke was good too. Other performances up front not in the same league.

You shouldn't need two water stations if you hydrated properly pre race.

In response to the question about the "man down", he is ok

Great event, went without a hitch, well done to Mallow AC! Just as I came onto the main road heading down to the roundabout a car & horsebox passed down and I thought of last year...
Normally would prefer just a water point half way on a 10 miler, but with the hot day it actually seemed about right to me.
One thought I'd have is maybe it's the wrong time of the year to give a long sleeve top, as it's getting warmer. Perhaps a short sleeve or singlet might be better this time of the year? That said, Clon gave out a sleeveless top in December, so who knows! ;-)

John Desmond said...

A lot of races give out short sleeved dry fit tops so most people have them. The long sleeved ones are probably a bit more expensive and are more valued by runners in general especially for the cold winter runs.

Hi John,
We have your hr strap. Are you at the Munster Roads Championships and we can return?
Kind regards

Personally I thought the long sleeved top was a nice change. Have a good few short sleeved and yes it maybe the wrong time of the year but will get plenty of use in the winter training for next years :)

I really enjoyed this run. Loved the 2 water stops and loads of water at the finish line. Fantastic support out on the course. A lovely spread afterwards too. I will definitely be back again next year. Well done to all in Mallow AC.

Thank s and congrats to mallow a c on a really well run event, one of the best organised races I have entered. Long sleeve top looks great and makes a welcome change for winter runs

The finishing time of first man would have been good enough for joint ninth place in this year's Ballycotton "10". Meanwhile the finishing time of first woman would have won this year's Ballycotton "10".

Well Done Mallow AC, it was so well run as usually, i too noticed the horse box going down the road and i thought oh no but thankfully the day was just perfect. I love the long sleeve tops and i have too many of the short one, the water was a must and necessary for us average runners (SUb 80). The grub was fantastic and well done again to all

My first time doing the mallow 10. I really enjoyed it but for the heat lol. It was a great event . Well organized plenty of supporters and a big shout out to the group of Nurses who came out to cheer people on . I think it was at mile 8 cant remember name of Hospital but it was very welcome when legs were fading. Food and tea fantastic . The water stops were well and truly used. As welcome as the water at the finish line. . As previously posted thoughts of last year and the accident when on the main road. Thankfully all went well no major hitches maybe except for heat exhaustion Hope to be back next year, Well done to everyone involved. Long sleeve top very welcome. . ,
