Galway City Harriers AC, one of Ireland’s largest athletics club, will host the 31st running of the famous Streets of Galway 8K road-race on Saturday 6th August 2016 (7pm). This event is the jewel in the crown of Galway city racing events, as a stunning summer evening run through the town centre, culminates in a beautiful 2K section along the promenade at Salthill and finishes with a flourish at the Claddagh basin.
Craughwell AC hosted last nights second race in the Galway Renault 5k Series this evening 3rd May 2016. Always a contender for a PB course with a FAST start this year saw a huge number of runners come from far and wide to take on the second leg of the series.
The weather was a lot better than last week, with the sun shining amongst some intermittent clouds and aside from the little wind there was no reason for complaints!!!
