The Tuam Athletic Club Annual 8K Road Race will take place on Sunday 15th January 2017 @ 2.30pm.
Almost 400 runners, joggers and walkers completed last years race with athletes travelling from far and wide and we are looking forward to welcoming them all back to Tuam again. Tuam AC are very grateful to the people of Tuam and surrounding areas who have supported the race by taking part in such huge numbers and also the many people who have volunteered to help out over the years.
We have a wide range of category prizes for men and women in all age groups as well as the first 3 men and women and the first two teams of men and women. Prizes consist of generous cash prizes and trophies. The course has been accurately measured and is a fantastic 8K lap with great local support to help the runners around. After the race, runners can look forward to hot showers and our legendary post race refreshments in the Mercy Gym.
Online entries are now open at the Athletics Ireland Runzone.

Tuam AC has been saddened to hear of the passing of Brian Sweeney, a former member of the club.
While in recent years, Brian had become more of a cyclist than a runner, he was at one time a regular fixture on the Tuesday and Thursday night training sessions.
Brian will be reposing at his home on Weir Road this (Wednesday) evening from 5.00pm until 7.00pm. His funeral mass will be tomorrow (Thursday) in the Cathedral of the Assumption, Tuam at 12.30pm.
Our deepest condolences from all at Tuam AC to Brian’s family.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.
