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

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

John Walshe has compiled the final listings for Irish 10 Mile Performances during 2018. There are a few changes, most notably for a 10 Miler (that shall remain unnamed) that has been dropped from the listings, due to the course being short (it wasn't in Cork!)  

Hopefully there are no 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.. The lists WILL be updated, but you do need to let John know!


Men's 10 Mile Rankings 2018

The listings include all known Irish Men's Performances under 55 Minutes

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 six (26) of the top 79 performances were by Corkmen. Colin Merritt, unattached, (4) and trio Alan O'Shea, Bantry AC, Michael Morgan, St Finbarr's AC and Kevin O'Leary, East Cork AC, with three each, make a total of thirteen between them alone.
