Claregalway was host to tonight’s event which was the 4th in the Galway 5k series.
This course was a little testing as with a hill to start and a hill at approx. 4km, and with weather conditions poor it was a test but none the less as we've seen in the past few weeks this didn't deter the crowds!!
The turnout was great tonight with 574 participants taking part and once again Galway City Harriers were well represented in the top 10 with 7 out of the 10 top spots (with 8 in the top 11)!!!

Maree hosted tonight’s event which was the 3rd in the Galway 5k series. This was Maree’s first time to take part as a stage in the series and an excellent inaugural event it was0021
Between a fast and favourable route and perfect weather conditions so many new PB’s were rewarded for the hard work to date!!
The turnout was great tonight with 662 participants taking part and once again Galway City Harriers were well represented this week and dominated the field!!!
Loughrea hosted the second event for the Galway 5k series tonight. The weather conditions (albeit improved on last year) was not as favourable this week with a dull breezy evening to contest against, not to mention a "nice" incline just before 3k!!
Numbers were slightly down on last week but even so 640 participants took to the roads surrounding Loughrea in a multitude of colours to brighten up the dull evening.
The Loughrea route is a little more difficult than last week but none the less many runners improved their times or kept them fairly even.
What a glorious evening for the Galway 5k series to begin with …………long may this weather continue!!
As always, the first of the 6 events saw the happy crowds (700 no less|) come out in force with their club crests and a multitude of electric colours on show. Excitement all around as some lined up at the race line in anticipation of a new PB, while for some it was their first time at a race line.
The Athenry route was improved on again this year in favour of better race times and this was evident as the competition was high!
Galway City Harriers were well represented in the Galway Sports Partnership 10k in Labane yesterday 21st April.

This was Matt Bidwell’s second win of the weekend following on from Saturdays win (and PB) in the Kilmovee 10k.
It was tough conditions on the course this year as despite the sun shine, there was strong winds on the day so times were slightly down but none the less some good performances & results especially by GCH
