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)!!!

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!!!

Galway 5k Series Results Week 2 Loughrea

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!

This was Matt Bidwell’s second win of the weekend following on from Saturdays win (and PB) in the Kilmovee 10k.

179 people turned out to fast course known for PB’s. Congrats to Owen Byrne coming home in 34:45 to take the win. Well down Owen on coming back from injury, lots more good results to come.

The Marathons have put a Spring in our step

Well done to everyone who has put in some serious training over the past 4 months. It's never easy to train for a marathon and even harder when the wind, rain, hail, sleet and snow are against you and that could happen on a long run the way the weather has been since Christmas. None the less last weekend there was some fantastic achievements by our club members and hopefully the GCH crew in Boston will come across the line in triumph!

A massive congrats to Nicola Duncan from all at Galway City Harriers.

Nicola Duncan ran a personal best of 2.33.28 in the London Marathon on Sunday 13th of April which was well inside the 2.38 qualifying standard for the European Championships in Zurich in August.

Nicola was first in her category on the day and not only that but her time beat number 13th and 14th in the elite category.

This was a new personal best for Nicola and not only that but is now fifth place on the Irish all time marathon lists.
