BREAKING NEWS - WED 9.30PM
MALLOW 10 MILE RACE HAS JUST BEEN POSTPONED.
STATEMENT FROM MALLOW AC
Thur. Jan 7th
Unfortunately we have had to cancel Sunday's race. We ran the course today and while most (95%) of the road is dry, there are a few patches of ice which hadn't cleared by late afternoon today. We could not be certain of the safety of all runners
Based on the forecast it is unlikely that things would have got better before Sunday. We were keen to avoid the situation of four years ago where the race was cancelled on the start-line due to safety concerns
We were also concerned about the athletes who would have had to travel long distances and the safety of the road network throughout the country.
We are looking at possible dates to restage the race and will be in touch.
Thank you for your entries. We had as many online entries this year as we had runners last year.
Sorry for the sudden change of heart.
