A nice morning (Saturday, 27 February) for a last long run before Ballycotton this weekend.
Congrat to Tara Glynn on a well organised romp around the Dave Huane-inspired 4M circuit around Ballindine. It was in memory of the lady's father who died last year at a very young age and was to raise funds for a local medical initiative. I believe nearly E2K was gathered together as a result.
It's save the date time as the most popular event of the Summer returns to the roads of Galway. The 5k Series!!!!
Registration will open March 11th at 8pm on Active.com (Link Below). There are 700 places available on-line. This event sells out in minutes so make sure you are ready at 8pm. The schedule is as follows....
