The Race around Galway is a virtual event starting 4th July, where we challenge you to Walk/ Run/ Cycle/Swim/Paddle/Roll etc., the equivalent of the circumference of Galway, which is 573 Kilometres!

You are free to complete these Kilometres wherever you want, be it your local park or on a day trip exploring all the beautiful parts of Galway!

All activities will be recorded weekly/monthly by submitting your km distance to our online form.

The programme runs from the 4th July to 31st October to allow everyone to reach the finish line in their own time!

The main goal is to get people out and about and get active, by whichever means they wish!

Why not get a group together and challenge each other over the next months!

Check out our Galway Sports Partnership Facebook/Instagram pages to sign up – Registration is €20 per person!
