More than three thousands runners and walkers will take part in the Galway Clinic-sponsored Streets of Galway 8km which will take place in the city this coming Saturday August 11 at 7.00pm, starting from GTI on Fr Griffin Road.
Number pick up takes place at the Claddagh Hall over the following times — 2pm - 8pm on Friday August 10 and on Saturday from 9am - 4pm on Saturday 11th August 11 (race day ).
Claire Henry from the Galway Clinic said the sponsorship is the ideal fit for the Galway Clinic as it promotes a healthy and active lifestyle. For many the race is a personal event and that is why many run for charity with Cope, ACT for Meningitis, Madra, and Croi to name but a few always having a big presence of runners participating.This year a large number of Fit For Life members will run the race and have been training hard since January under the excellent guidance of Bernie Kelly and her team of dedicated leaders.
If you are not running and would like to be part of this great event, organisers urgently need marshalls to help the race progress smoothly.You get a bird’s eye view of the country’s best road race and you get a fab technical t shirt. Drop Hugh an email [email protected].
Please see attached a course map and remember there is no parking at race start or finish.
Please bear in mind there will be traffic disruptions between 6.30pm> and 8.00pm but this will be kept to a minimum.
