Event notice...Mallow 10 mile road race - Sun 23rd March 2014

Now that entries to the Dungarvan '10' and the Ballycotton '10' are closed, the next big ten mile race in Munster after that is the Mallow 10 mile road race on Sunday, the 23rd of March 2014 at 12:30pm.

Sponsored by The Edge Sports Shop and SKINS and organised by Mallow AC, there is a limit of 1200 entries to this race. In 2013, entries were sold out before the race and there were no entries on the day itself. It's likely to be the same again this year so enter asap.

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 €18 to pre-enter this race (Online €19.26) (until the 31st of Jan when the price goes up to €20). 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, a dry fit top and a €5,000 prize fund with prizes in all the usual categories.
