Published in Reports on 31st May 2017

Tonight 690 athletes gathered at the start line in Athenry for the final leg of the 2017 Galway 5km series. Approx 22 clubs were represented. Close to 80 donned the Athenry AC colours of maroon and white. Athletes reported conditions were very warm and many welcomed the downhill approach to the finish line! Fabian Mangan was the first member of the club home. Fabian finished in 25th place overall while clocking 18:00. Deirdre Brophy was the first Athenry woman home and she crossed the line in 19:11. Throughout the series there has been a number of athletes who achieved PB's in most of the races. Well done to you! And so the 5km series is done and dusted for another 12 months! Hope to see you all again next year!
