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

Irish 10 Mile Rankings for 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). As most of the 10-mile races takes place in the spring months, this year we are publishing an interim list, up to the end of April.

Already, the leading marks of Sean Tobin (48:34) and Aoife Cooke (55:17) are faster than last year’s fastest overall times, set by Kevin Seward (48:41) and Laura Shaughnessy (56:47).

In 2018, eight performance Sub 60:00 were achieved by women. This figure has already been equalled this year. A similar number of men broke 50:00 last year, although only four have done so this spring.

It will be interesting to see if last year’s respective totals under the standards of 55:00 (81) and 65:00 (47) will be surpassed come the end of December.

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.
