2017 saw the 32nd year of the Streets of Galway road race. Just over 50 from the club joined another 2,450 athletes to run the very familiar 8km loop around the streets of Galway. This race is well know for its great local support and this year was no different as supports were interspersed along the route to encourage the athletes along the way! The weather was very pleasant for the supporters but the athletes found it warm! The now traditional wind was also reported along the prom for the last leg of the race. Kevin Maunsell was victorious with almost a photo finish required between himself and Freddie Keron Sittuk. While there was clear daylight in the women's race when Siobhan O'Doherty took gold for her second consecutive year.
First Athenry AC members home were the Meehans! David finishing in 40th position clocking 28:25 with Jane Ann finishing just over 1 min behind in 29:45 while taking 4th place.
