The third race of the Galway 5k Series took place Tuesday evening in Craughwell, with 73 participants completing the course in good times. The pre-race perception that the course was reasonably flat was quickly banished as runners gave their verdict on a challenging course at the finish line. Luckily the weather held fine for all but a couple of minutes during the race.

Course records fell to the leading man and woman (predictable since this was the first 5k in Craughwell!) with Ruaidhrí Geraghty completing the race in 16:32 and Regina Casey in 19:12. 2nd and 3rd placed men were Conor Moloney in 17:09 and Ned O’Sullivan in 18:11, with 2nd and 3rd women being Anne-Marie Miskell (20:04) and Jane-Ann Healy (20:40). 

Final race in the series is next Tuesday at 7.30pm in Dangan. Well done to all who took part in Craughwell and thank you to all who helped in its organisation and stewarding. Full results from Craughwell are as follows.
