History

History of Mallow AC 10 mile road race

The Mallow ’10’ has its origins in a 26.2 km metric marathon way back in 1981. In 1985, it changed to the 10 mile distance. With a decine in running in the late 90’s, the race was not held between 1996 and 1999. It restarted in the year 2000 with much the same numbers as when it had stopped in 1995. Since then, the numbers have grown but the weather in early January became a serious issue with the race being postponed on several occasions. In 2012, the race moved to March and the numbers have really taken off since.
