Cathal McDonagh, EY Galway Assurance Partner, “EY is proud to once again support Galway Athletics 5km Series for the fourth year running. The sell-out of all six races in the Galway 5km Series speaks to the energetic and committed community Galway Athletics has fostered here in the West. We look forward to our continued partnership with Galway Athletics and together, with many of our people in EY Galway, I look forward to lacing up my runners as part of the series across April and May."

About The Series

The County Galway 5km series, is an initiative of the 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 the races gets a souvenir race t-shirt.

Entries for the Galway 5k series available soon!

The series has exploded in popularity over the years, to the point where entry sells out in a matter of minutes.

All proceeds of the 5k series go to fund juvenile and adult athletics in Galway.

Please car pool to venues - parking is strictly limited at all venues!
