Kinvara Rock & Road Race Report 2014

[acidfree:10152 size=300 align=centre title='']

2014 saw the 4th Annual Kinvara Rock and Road Half Marathon & 10k races with over 1,300 athletes taking part in both events. The Galway City Harriers dominated the course with 50 club members participating in the races this year.

It was a glorious day in Kinvara fresh and calm with enough sun shining through the clouds to keep the cold at bay. The atmosphere was electric with a sea of colorful athletes scattered along the waterside village doing last minute prep to warm up and stretch before their chosen races (and walks!).
