2017 Galway 5KM Series announced

The ever popular Galway 5KM series is back again this year.
One notable change is that this year Tuam will not be hosting a leg this year due to roadworks on their route. Caltra will be taking their place.
The Athenry race will once again be the final leg of the series and we are currently working to finalise the actual route.
Entries will open at 8pm on Friday March 24th on Active. As usual it will more than likely sell out very quickly.

Memories of the late Noel Henry

I first met Noel Henry in the early 1980s. Once you met him you'd love to meet him again and again. When I told him where I was from, he was anxious to know not alone the old Derrydonnell AC lads, but also all the Galway runners from early 1900s as he was writing on the subject at that time. Then in early-1984 he contacted me to know would I care to join a group of them who were going to run the Cork City marathon, as they were also trying to gather a few quid for the National council for the blind.
