Countdown to race day!

With thanks to Benecol, 100% of the proceeds will go directly to supporting Croí services. This includes supporting our health and support initiatives and community programmes, our free community telephone helpline and other virtual supports, and the Croí Courtyard Apartments – available to families in need while their loved ones receive heart or stroke care at University Hospital Galway.

Salthill Route:

Start/Finish: Mutton Island

The 5km run will start at Mutton Island. Runners will run on the main road towards Blackrock, staying on the left side of the road (we cone down the middle and stop traffic on the left for the duration of the run). The half way point is the “kick wall” before Blackrock Tower – runners will turn around at this point and return via the promenade and run back to Mutton Island finish line (where you started). The route is a one-way system.
