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 are always well represented at the 5km Series and this year was no different, even though a few familiar faces were missing from this leg there's plenty more weeks to follow!

In the Men’s race Galway City Harriers took all top spots with John Greaney first home with a new PB in 16:13, followed in second place by Owen Byrne in 16:31 and third by Conor Dolan in 16:39. Well done boys!!

In the Women’s Race, Regina Casey(GCH) proved she is a force to be reckoned with coming first in 18:11 followed Caroline Whirskey (Loughrea Ac) in 18:42 and in third by Jane Ann Healy (Athenry) in 18:51

Congrats to Siobhan Egan (GCH) who had a massive PB and went Sub 20 deservedly in 19:51!! Well deserved Siobhan!

And congrats to all who took part, keep up the good work!!!
