Top 10 - Irish Men's and Women's 10 Mile Road Race Performances 2018

Irish 10 Mile Rankings for 2018 - Guest Article by John Walshe

John Walshe, was the driving force behind the, sadly gone but not forgotten, World famous Ballycotton 10, so it will come as no surprise that he is passionate about 10 Mile events, so much so, that he has been known to forego shorter races nearer to home and travel to 'other parts', including the UK, to run in, often obscure, but nevertheless prestige 10 Mile races.

Earlier this year, we started compiling a Cork race Leaderboard, so John asked "What about a National 10 Mile list!" I think the response may have been along the lines of "Haven't we enough to be doing?  ...Do you want to do it?"  Undaunted, John has chased down results of Athletics Ireland members, and AAI races in Ireland, and has compiled Performance lists for men running sub-55 Minutes and women running Sub-65 minutes.

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.


Men's 10 Mile Rankings 2018

Kevin Seward is the Men's 10 Mile Leader, following his 48:41 in Portsmouth, UK. The leading Corkman, in 12th position, is East Cork AC's Tim O'Donoghue, with his 51:30 win in St. Finbarr's AC's Cork City 10 Miler, last September.  Twenty three (23) of the top 75 performances were by Corkmen.

Women's 10 Mile Rankings 2018

There are 46 women on the Irish 10 Mile ranking List for 2018, with DSD AC's Laura Shaughnessy heading the list with her 56:47 performance, in the John Treacy 10 Mile, in Dungarvan, last February. The leading Cork woman is Lizzie Lee, who ran 58:28, over the challenging Sonia O'Sullivan 10 Mile course, in Cobh, last April.  Fourteen (14) of these top 46 performances were by Cork women.

 Update 6pm, Dec 24th: First correction brought to our notice was for a man running with a woman's number in one of the performances - Result deleted and race results amended. Lads & Lassies, Number Swaps DO have an effect...They are NOT harmless!
