Top 10 - Irish Men's and Women's 10 Mile Road Race Performances during 2019

Irish 10 Mile Rankings during 2019 - Guest Article by John Walshe

Last year an Irish 10-mile ranking list was compiled for men and women, giving all performances under 55:00 (men) and 65:00 (women). This year, a similar list has been put together and it’s good to see a significant improvement in the overall standings.  

In 2018, the total times under the standards of 55:00 and 65:00 were 81 (men) and 47 (women). For 2019, the totals have increased to 119 and 65. As well, the leading marks of Sean Tobin (48:34) and Aoife Cooke (55:17) are faster than last year’s leading times of 48:41 (Kevin Seward) and 56:47 (Laura O’Shaughnessy).

In 2018, eight performance under 60:00 were achieved by women while for last year it has risen to 14. Aoife Cooke has the top three fastest times and it’s also interesting to see that the top six were achieved in Cork races.

A similar number of eight men broke 50:00 in 2018, last year it increased to 12. Some runners seem to have a particular liking for the 10-mile distance, for instance Angela McCann has six times under 65:00 to her credit.

And finally, it is very rare for a man to run 10 miles in a time faster than his age. Last July, 59-year-old Tommy Hughes easily accomplished that feat when recording 54:54 and now that he has turned 60 it should be mere formality for him to achieve the magical barrier of ‘breaking 60 at 60.’



Undoubtably, there will be performances that, for whatever reason, have been missed, overlooked, or, maybe, were run abroad. If you are aware of any, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Report on the 2019 CYDI/Winter Training Programme


This year has seen the completion of another successful year for Cork Athletics Youth Development Initiative (CYDI)/Winter training programme.

Eleven sessions were held throughout the year, three took place in the early spring, with a further eight in the autumn/winter period.

Eight event groups were covered in all, with 181 individual athletes, from 21 different clubs across Cork City and county, attendeed, supported by eleven coaches, and two administrative helpers, across the programme.

This has been a big commitment, on the part of both coaches and athletes, and Cork Athletics would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank each and every one, along with the athlete's parents, for their time, effort, cooperation and committment in making this an outstandingly successful venture.


The primary aim of this programme is to raise the technical standard across the eleven event groups. To this end, it has been a great success.

The past year has seen one participant achieve the qualification standard and selection to the European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) Championships, in . Others were selected for their first underage international in both schools (SIAB) and the Nation’s cup. Many others again won medals at county, provisional and National Championships. While others set PBs in competition, or just discovered new events and found they had a previously unrealised talent at them.

At our end of year review meeting, all coaches expressed the opinion that they could see a big, and enduuring, improvement in standards and technical ability over the last couple of years, from athletes who had taken part in the programme.


Many reviews of athletic participation have mentioned the worrying trend of the drop off in athletics during the teenage years, and many suggestions have been put forward as to why this happens and how to arrest/prevent it. [This drop-off is not confined to athletics, and has been noted across the entire sporting spectrum, both in Ireland and abroad]

The CYDI/Winter training programme has seen a reversal of this trend. Over the eight autumn/winter sessions a group of 15 to 18 year olds attended all sessions, in their chosen events, and formed friendships and training partnerships across  a wide range of different clubs. They now are all looking to competing against each other in the New Year, and meeting up again, at the Spring sessions. This is great to see, and is something Cork Athletics wishes to foster and encourage.

 

Spring 2020 Sessions

For the spring of 2020 and as a request of many who took part in 2019, three further sessions are scheduled:

Saturday Jan 11th

Saturday February 8th

Saturday March 14th


Following the end of the Cross Country season the distance group will be joining us on the track.

Photos (37) from the Launch on Cork Athletics County Board Facebook Page

The Sonia O'Sullivan 10 road race 2020, organised and hosted by Ballymore-Cobh AC was launched today, Sunday December 22nd 2019, at a function in Belvelly Castle. 

Included in the function was a formal acknowledgement of the donation of €4,565, from the 2019 event, to Breakthrough Cancer Research, the official Race Charity Partner

Speaking at the event, Sonia thanked the event sponsors; Kearys of Cork, Merck, Eurospar, The Edge, The Commodore Hotel, Cobh Credit Union, The Naval Service and Keen on Sport, along with a host of other sponsors.

Sonia said that the organisers, Ballymore-Cobh AC, are committed to "making the race bigger and better". It is already the fastest 10 mile race in Ireland in 2019 and ...hills...what hills...Just get the head down and move those legs a bit faster! (said with a chuckle!)

As part of making the event bigger and better, the club are recruiting celebrity runners, including soccer and rugby players, along with a lot of other 'names'.  She said "We already know it's fast up front, so that will take care of itself. We want to make this a mass participation event. We also want to 'Tap into' New Year Resolutions"

Wanna Run the Great North Run!?

Sonia revealed that Ballymore-Cobh will shortly be announcing details of a very special prize, to be drawn from all race finishers. The lucky winner will receive a prize of flights to Newcastle (UK) for two people, 2 night accomodation and VIP entry to the prestigious Great North Run. The Great North Run attracts some 57,000 entries each year, and entry and accomodation are highly prized!

Watch out for details from Ballymore-Cobh AC and The Cobh 10

Racewalking - Walkers Set the Pace - Irish Runner October 2000


This Article, by Pierce O'Callaghan, appeared in the Irish Runner magazine (Issue 5, Vol 20), in October 2000

irish walkers sydney irish runner october 2000L to R: Olive Loughnane, Gillian O'Sullivan, Robert Heffernan and Jamie Costin

Olive Loughnane (Loughrea AC) and Gillian O'Sullivan (SPA Muckross AC) are both Cork residents, Rob Heffernan (Togher AC), is Cork through-and-through, and Jamie Costin (West Waterford AC) and lives in Ring, Co. Waterford

 

Pierce O'Callaghan's dream of competing in Sydney was dashed by illness - but he is still happy to explain how Irish walking has progressed in the past decade

Right up to the late eighties, distance running was widely accepted as the strong middle plank of Irish athletics. Then, however, the picture began to change. The 1988 Seoul Olympics saw Irish athletes reveal new strengths in hurdles, javelin, and race-walking.


TJ Kearns set new standards in the high hurdles. Terry McHugh was making the first of four summer Olympic appearances. And Jimmy McDonald made his Olympic debut in the 20k walk. It is noteworthy that all three were sent to Seoul on B qualifying standards.


Although the present National Race Walks Coach, Bernie O'Callaghan (yes, the dad), had in Edinburgh in 1981 become the first Irish walker to win an international race, the seeds were already being sown of what is now a walking boom.


In the year preceding Seoul, the Irish record for 20k was 93:45. The women's 10k record was over 55 minutes.


Last year, Robert Heffernan was ranked number three in Ireland over 20k with 1.26.45, and Gillian O'Sullivan had walked 20k at just over 48 minutes for each 10k.


Eight years after Jimmy McDonald finished a brilliant sixth in the Barcelona Olympics, Ireland will this month be represented by four young walkers in Sydney: Jamie Costin (23) from Waterford, Robert Heffernan (22) from Cork, Gillian O'Sullivan (24) from Kerry, and Olive  Loughnane (24) from Galway - a huge breakthrough.


And yet the boom could possibly have started even earlier. In 1962 Clare-born Paul Nihill, who emigrated to England in his teens, and won 27 British titles through his career, wrote to the Olympic Council of Ireland requesting that he be considered for Olympic selection for the country of his birth.


NihilI's letter was ignored. He was persuaded to walk for Britain at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. He won the silver medal in the 50k.


Irish race-walking is fortunate to have a number of excellent coaches - the above-mentioned Bernie (Donegal) and Michael Lane (Westmeath) are largely responsible for the rapidly rising standards.

Also strategically placed around the country are John Lennon (Kilkenny), PJ Brennan (Carlow), Patricia Griffin (Leitrim), Con Hearty (Dublin), Jimmy Costin (Waterford), and Ray Flynn (Sligo), all great believers in promoting the sport among youngsters.

Add in the strong competitive environment in Ireland, which we perhaps sometimes take for granted, and you have the main reasons for the burgeoning interest in the sport.


Jamie Costin began his race-walking career by winning the under-13 BLOE title in 1990. Robert Heffernan started his career by finishing out of the medals at intermediate schools level.


Gillian O'Sullivan first came to prominence when winning the under-13 walk at the National Community Games in 1989. And Olive Loughnane made her competitive debut at the Irish Universities Championships in 1994.
As with the marathon, there are many imponderables in long-distance walking that make future performances difficult to predict.


Jamie Costin (50k), who will be the youngest competitor by some four years in his event in Sydney, will gain vital experience for Athens 2004. He recorded 'negative splits' in a race in Berlin (faster in the second half than in the first), an art that takes most walkers years to master. He will be hoping for an Irish record in Sydney.
Robert Heffernan (20k) has ambitions similar to Jamie's. Robert is an aggressive racer - expect to see him up with the leaders for a fair stretch of the race in Sydney.


Gillian O'Sullivan (20k) is considered the most likely of the Irish walkers to finish top ten in her race. She will be very strong in the second half.


Olive Loughnane (20k), in her first major championship, will learn a great deal in Sydney. If she walks to form she can make the top 30.


To understand just how fast these athletes travel, consider this: when Jamie Costin knocked seven minutes off the Irish 50k record at the European Cup in Berlin last June (his 3.:59:02 was 58 seconds inside the Olympic A standard), he went through 26.2 miles (a marathon) in 3:15 - and still had five miles to go.


As for Gillian O'Sullivan, her 45.29 for 10k is a time many runners would be stretched to achieve.


The fact that four Irish walkers are racing in Sydney says much about how well the sport is being developed. It is also of course a reward for the dedication and talent of the four themselves.

Denis McCarthy - Running the Country - Irish Runner September 1995

RUNNING THE COUNTRY

This Article, by John Walshe, appeared in the Irish Runner magazine (Issue 4, Vol 15) in September 1995

 

denis mccarthy irish runner september 1995

There is a current catchy advertising slogan, devised by a certain well-known shoe company, which simply says, 'You either ran today, or you didn't'. For East Cork athlete, Denis McCarthy, this question just does not arise, for, on June 5th last, Denis completed ten years without missing a single day’s running.

 

denis mccarthy irish runner september 1995a


The greatest exponent of an unbroken running streak has to be Doctor Ron Hill, the European, Commonwealth and Boston Marathon champion from the late 'sixties and early 'seventies, who has a streak going all the way back to December 1964. Seven or eight years ago, Hill recorded another unique landmark by competing in 50 different countries before his fiftieth birthday.


It was this achievement of Hill's that prompted Denis McCarthy to go for a similar target, that of running a race in each of the 32 counties on this island, before his 32nd birthday.


This he accomplished in March of last year, with some nine months to spare, and he must surely be the only runner to achieve this quite remarkable feat.


Denis started in athletics, as a juvenile, in 1976, competing in the local East Cork Cross country leagues, which also served as a grounding for Sonia O'Sullivan, a few years later, his father, Dan, has been a long-standing servant of athletics in the area, as chairman of the East Cork Board, and is probably best known to outside runners as the official starter of the many road races in the region, in particular the Ballycotton '10'.


With personal bests on the track of 8:33 for 3000m and 14:58 for 5000m, Denis is no mean performer. He has represented Cork on many occasions in cross-country, particularly in the intermediate grade where he was a regular on the team for seven years. This enabled him to compete in quite a few counties, before he moved out of intermediate, as a member of a winning county team, in 1988.


When he had achieved about 18 different counties, Denis felt that his his goal was attainable. Obviously, for someone in the far south of the country, the northern counties would be the hardest to get to. A trip to Belfast in '91 saw him get in Antrim (Belfast Games 3000m), and the following day, Armagh (Craigavon 10K). This was despite getting lost in the Craigavon race, ending up in the ‘twenties’, an incident (one of many, we hasten to add) that is now consigned to the folklore of East Cork AC.


One of the most novel races was an 11 mile event, in Comber, Co. Down, comprising of road, fell and cross-country. Some of the races he won include the now-defunct Rosslare Half-Marathon in 1983, two ten mile races in Youghal and Leamybrien (Co. Waterford), and a '1 OK' in Ballyporeen, Co. Tipperary.


At Christmas '93, Denis had just three counties to go. On St. Stephens Day, he travelled to Tyrone, where, on a snow-covered course he finished third in the Greencastle '10K'. A week later, he availed of an invitation to take part in the Derry Cross Country Championships, thus leaving just Monaghan on his agenda, and this he 'bagged' the following March, when he finished fourth in a road race in Glaslough.


For most of the races in the far North, it meant leaving his home in Ballynoe at an unearthly hour, and not arriving back until near midnight. One of the longest journeys he undertook was to Donegal, a round trip of about 500 miles. He left home at 5:30am, slept for a short while in his car alongside the tomb of W.B. Yeats in Drumcliffe, Sligo, before going on to Donegal Town, where he finished 6th in a '5K' on the road.
