Entry list and stats for the Mallow 10 mile road race

The 2017 Mallow 10 mile road race is coming up on Sunday the 26th of March and the entry list has now been published. The links are up on the race website...

Club & Gender balance : As you can see from the chart below, about 55% of the entrants are members of a club. The percentage of women entered is 46% which is close to the 45.1% percentage that took part in the recent Dungarvan 10 mile road race.

Category breakdown: This is the breakdown of entries by age. Again, no major suprise with the bulk of runners aged 35 and over. The Senior category would be made up of those aged 20 to 34 and it's probably safe to say that the vast majority are probably in the 30-34 age bracket.

Just one curious point. Notice how there are more Over 40 women than O40 men? Back in February of this year, I put up the stats for the Dungarvan 10 mile road race and I noticed something similar. I thought it was just a one off thing but it's not. For whatever reason, there seems to be a peak in women in the 40-44 age category while the peak for the men is in the 35-39 age group. As to why there are so many women aged 40-44 running, I have no idea.

This is the breakdown of the entries by club (5 or more)
The host club Mallow AC take the top spot and are followed by Eagle AC with 42, Grange Fermoy AC with 32 and St.Finbarr's AC & Watergrasshill AC with 28.
