The County Galway 5km series is an initiative of the Galway Athletic Clubs. Over 6 Tuesday nights, a 5km race is organised by one of the athletic clubs across the county. The format is simple - one race number covers the entire series. No prizes are awarded, but anyone who completes 4 of the 6 races gets a souvenir race t-shirt. After the last race, a social night is organised by the final host club.
The series has exploded in popularity over the years, to the point where entry sells out in a matter of minutes.
All proceed of the 5k series goes to fund juvenile and adult athletics in Galway.
Please car pool to venues - parking is strictly limited at all venues!
Update: The series has sold out.
