While we in GCH continue to reflect in the afterglow of celebrating the 30th anniversary of our "Streets of Galway" club-race earlier this year, it's worthwhile mentioning that our running neighbours across the county boundary in south Mayo will be marking an even more noteworthy occasion on Sunday 15th November next when Hollymount celebrates the 50th anniversary of it's annual road-race.

Tom Hunt of Mayo AC has written two lovely pieces chronicling some of the history of this event in terms of past male and female winners as follows:

A massive congrats to almost 20 GCHers that took part in the 36th Dublin City Marathon 2015 held on Monday 26th October. It was not the most ideal of conditions for 26.2 miles but it didn’t make much of a difference to our brilliant GCH athletes with many coming home with PB’s and even some new silver wear for their efforts.

[acidfree:11207 title=" " size=750 align=center] Clare River Harriers never fail to put on a great race and 2015 didn’t disappoint with a well organised and exciting race at yesterday evenings Claregalway 10k. Flat for the most of this course this always brings home PB’s and is a target race for most athletes at the end of the Summer racing or for those targeting the Dublin City Marathon.
