Galway 5km Series - Claregalway

Published in Results on 24th May 2016

The penultimate race of this year's 5km series brought us to Claregalway. A lovely warm and pleasant evening with 638 athletes turning out in force. This week 80 members of Athenry AC gathered along the starting line to take on the single lap race which started and finished at the Claregalway Corporate Park. There was great local support again this year and in particular along the final kilometre. Athenry's Martin Keane finished in 25:35 running his best 5km in years on the back of running a half marathon in Portugal on Sunday! What a man! Peadar Nugent walked the 5km and completed the distance in 34:32. Deirdre Brophy finishing 2nd with a PB and her third time on the podium this series with another great performance. Another great race from Fergal Walsh running a sub 17min.
