Galway 5km Series.
It’s that time of year again. The evenings are getting longer and the sun is starting to make a welcomed appearance in the sky, which means the Galway 5km series is just around the corner.
This year the series will open for entry on www.activeglobal.com on Thursday 13th March at 8pm. Series entry costs €30 and sells out within minutes. So be sure to have logged into your active account and be ready to enter for 8pm.
The County Galway 5km series is an initiate of Galway Athletic Clubs Over 6 Tuesday nights, a 5km race is organised by one of the athletic clubs across the county. The format is simple – one race number covers the entire series. No prizes are awarded, but anyone who completes 4 out of the 6 races gets a souvenir t-shirt. After the last race, a social night is organised by the final host club.
All proceeds from the 5km series go to fund juvenile and adult athletics in Galway.
The first leg of the series starts in Athenry on Tuesday 29th April at 8pm where you will pick up your race number.
