The 2015 Elverys Galway Bay Half Marathon and 10K was launched today on Facebook and www.runireland.com. The theme this year is ‘Train as a Team’ – whether you are a walker or a competitive runner it’s easier to keep motivated and firmly focused on your targets if you train with friends. A 10% discount is available for all participants who register as a team. Remember – once it’s booked it’s not a dream it’s a goal!
With 10 months to prepare there are no excuses – that’s enough time to go from zero to a half marathon comfortably. The Elverys Sports Power Team will be on hand again this year with training plans to suit all abilities as well as advice on everything from how to hydrate, what to eat, choosing the correct shoes and how to stay motivated. Follow the Power Team Blog here and follow us on Facebook to keep up with all the event news.
The event will take place on Saturday October 4th on the same scenic course as last year with the newly resurfaced and much improved path along the seafront. If you aren’t from Galway we would encourage you to make a weekend of it and enjoy the vibrant buzz of Galway City and the tranquil setting of this seaside town. Many of the local hotels and restaurants have given us special rates for race participants and their friends and families so keep checking in on Facebook.
