The Elverys Sports Galway Bay Half Marathon and 10K organisers have once again applied to Galway City Council for a temporary road closure. Having a road closure made a huge difference to the event last year. While it adds considerably to the overall management of the the event It made the run much more enjoyable and safe for participants and that is the most important thing. So, subject to approval from City Hall we'll be enjoying traffic free roads again on October 6th.
The road closure will not affect access to any homes or business premises along the route as it is only the westbound road which will be closed to traffic. A detailed Traffic Management Plan has been submitted to Galway City Council and minimum disruption is expected. The organisers would like to thank Galway City Council and the Gardaí for their assistance in the planning of the event.
Because of an extended time on our Road Closure Application, we are changing the start times of the 10K.
The 10K will now start at 9:45am.
The Half Marathon wil start at 11.00am.
The Elverys Sports Galway Bay Half Marathon and 10K have announced the overall prize fund for this year's events.

This year Cancer Care West is appealing to all Galway Bay 10 and Galway Bay Half Marathon participants to become part of the 10 year celebrations and help support the charity by taking part in the ‘10 4 10’ fundraising campaign.
All you have to do to be a part of this campaign is to raise €10 each for 10 people you know that have been affected by cancer.
If everyone raised €100, the charity would easily achieve their fundraising target of €100,000.
One out of every two men and one out of every three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, meaning that everyone is affected by cancer in some way.
