Results of the poll for the best 10 mile race in Munster in 2018

Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote for the best 10 mile road race in Munster in 2018.

As people generally travel further for longer races, the poll covered all of Munster this time instead of just Cork for the shorter ones.

These were the nominations...
John Treacy 10 mile road race in Dungarvan (Feb 2018)
Kingdom Come 10 mile in Castleisland (Apr 2018)
Mallow 10 mile (March 2018)
Duhallow 10 mile in Newmarket (Apr 2018)
Blackwater 10 mile in Clondulane nr Fermoy (May 2018)
John Buckley Sports 10 Miler in Cork City (Sept 2018)
Sonia O'Sullivan 10 mile in Cobh (Apr 2018)
Killarney 10 mile (Sept 2018)

As can be seen from the award above, the John Treacy 10 mile road race in Dungarvan topped the poll and by some margin. The Mallow 10 mile road race just managed to squeeze ahead of the John Buckley Sports Cork City 10 miler to take second.

See all the comments below from those that voted for the John Treacy 10 mile in Dungarvan...
