The presentation of surplus funds, that was generated by 2015 Galway 5k Road Races series which was held at 6 different venues throughout Galway last April and May, was handed over to the Galway County Board at their recent monthly meeting. As happened for the past number of years, the funds will be used for the promotion of athletics within Galway County.

Where's Martin?

The front page of the Dublin City Marathon web site this evening (9 November) has a picture of our club co-president, Martin Keane, except he's not looking in the direction of the  camera!

So where exactly is our Martin (below and attached as the image doesn't render very well in an article)?

50th Hollymount International Road Races

The 50th Anniverary Hollymount Road races will be celebrated on November 14 and 15.

The 50th Anniversary Organising Committee extend a hearty welcome to all, and especially to athletics clubs from near and far, to come and compete in the events and/or attend the celebrations of the unique occasion. 

November 15: 50th Race day details and schedule:

They came, they ran, they won!

One of the highlights of the 50th Hollymount Road Races celebrations on November 15th will be the unveiling of a plaque containing the names of all winners (men and women) since 1966. The plaque will go on permanent display in the village. The list of names contains an awesome array of athletes who have won in Hollymount, and certainly surpasses the dreams that Seán and Tom Reilly had when they established the race in their local village almost a half century ago.
