Runners of all ages will be heading to Moylough on Sunday October 16 for the North East Galway 10k/5k which this year also includes a 1.5k run for children.
The North East Galway 10/5k, has been organised over the last five years by the Moylough Community Council, but this year it is being run by Moylough 79 FC soccer club.
“We were excited to take over the organizing of it as its a great way to get everyone in the club involved and it is nice to use a sporting event to fund raise for a sports club,” said a spokesman for the club.
“To get everyone involved we have our main event the 10k, kicking off at 12 noon, a 5k at 11am and a children’s 1.5k fun run at 10:30am.
The 10k is a registered Athletics Association of Ireland event and thus officially measured and timed and as an extra incentive they are handing out a technical t-shirt to all 10k participants. There are also prizes for male and female winners in various categories.
