Galway 5k Series - Leg 2 - Loughrea

Well that was hard!

With the inclement weather all day prior to this race we were guaranteed a smaller entry than last week but still had 640 starters in Loughrea for the second leg of this years series. Whilst the rain stayed away for the race the runners faced into a tough wind for the first 2.5km until they turned back towards Loughrea & 'The Hill'.
