As most people will be aware the Mallow 10 mile road race had to be cancelled shortly before the 3 mile point on Sunday the 20th of March. This was due to a tragic accident that had taken place on the N20 before the race arrived.
Mallow AC would like to extend our condolences to the family of the driver of the truck Roland Sweetnam who lost his life in the accident.
Our thoughts are also with all those who were injured in the accident and those affected.
Mallow AC would also like to acknowledge the emergency services who were on standby for the road race plus all the other services who attended the accident including those runners who assisted at the accident site
At this time Mallow AC is liaising with all relevant parties in relation to the best way forward for the Mallow 10.
We would ask runners to be patient with us as these are unfamiliar circumstances for us as a club.
