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.
