Galway City Harriers is an athletics club based in Galway city, Ireland, catering for senior and juvenile athletes. Founded in 1899, GCH has been to the forefront of athletics in Ireland throughout the 20th century and many famous athletes have represented both club and country in track and field, cross-country and road competitions.

At a Senior level our members include a number of national and international champions. For a couple of decades our Juvenile programme has gone from strength to strength with GCH athletes featuring strongly in national records and with call-ups to represent Ireland at European and World competitions.

GCH also welcomes broad community participation in club activities. We have one of the strongest Fit 4 Life sections in the country led since inception by Bernie Kelly.
