The much-loved Galway 5k series starts tomorrow night. Being on a Tuesday night is brilliant since it means that it acts like a high-quality speed session and you will be well able to do any weekend races before or after it so it fits in great with almost every type of training. As you know this year the numbers are higher and it sold out quicker than a U2 concert. As the first race is in Newcastle, Athenry there is very limited parking facilities and Athenry AC are asking people to carpool wherever possible.
Otherwise, make your own arrangements but ensure that as few cars
as possible make it to the village itself from any direction!"
