Last night the 31st Streets of Galway 8Km road race was launched at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Galway.
This brilliant race is run each year by the Galway City Harriers Athletic Club and is now one of the biggest races in the country.
For the first year we are delighted at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa to be sponsors of this iconic event.
Thanks to the amazing voluntary work each year the race has grown from a few hundred entering in 1986 to a field of 3000 last year.
What ever your abilities this is the race for you because there is no other town or city that offers such an iconic course.
It literally is a loop of the city and you feel like royalty running because the city simply shuts down to support all the runners and walkers.
The beautuful course takes in sights as the famous Claddagh, The Long Walk and the Spanish Arch not to mention finishing along the fabulous Salthill promenade.
If you have not ran before we urge you to get involved with family, friends or work colleagues.
This year our team at spirit one fitness have devised a brilliant run club that meets twice a week to help you prepare for the race.
Find out more by following them on Facebook at spirit one leisure or call Ronan on 091 538525.
So if you do one thing this Summer simply sign up here for this race on and do so at the amazing price of €20 for another 20 days.
Let us know your progress by using the #radblustreets on social media.
Best of luck everybody and see you on the 6th of August for the Radisson Blu Streets of Galway
