About the race series

The County Galway 5km series is an initiative of the Galway Athletic Clubs. Over 6 Tuesday nights, a 5km race is organised by one of the athletic clubs across the county.
One race number covers the entire series.
No prizes are awarded, but anyone who completes 4 of the 6 races gets a souvenir race t-shirt.

After the last race, a social night is organised by the final host club.

All proceeds of the 5k series goes to fund juvenile and adult athletics in Galway.

Please car pool to venues - parking is strictly limited at all venues!
