The streets are alive with the sound of runners, about 3000 of them.
This years Streets of Galway 8k race is on Saturday, the 12th August 7pm, same route as last year. The race comes down Dr Mannix road, turns up past the stadium, then on towards the Prom. See attached the route map.
I’m sure a few will be out to cheer on the 3000 runners as they pass by.
The organising committee and volunteers will be busy on the day from 5pm setting up the water station at Pearse Stadium and setting out traffic cones, bins, cleaning up etc. Civil Defence may also be positioned at the stadium.
There is also a Daniel O Donnell concert on in Leisureland on 12th August at 8pm, same day as race.
There will be cones placed on Rockbarton Road by race organisers and Gardaí early on 12th August, from Pearse Stadium to the Prom. This is to facilitate traffic management around race time, when concert goers will be arriving as the race passes by Leisureland. So traffic restrictions will be more than normal on race day.
If any residents want to help out at the water station at Pearse Stadium or as a marshal, please contact Hugh O Donoghue at email@example.com.
