Notes:

  • Updates on all club-approved training sessions will (only) be posted via communication from official club channels – namely Clubforce, Whatsapp Broadcasts (all age groups via PRO/Assistant PRO), the Club Secretary & Galway City Harriers Juvenile Facebook.
  • These updates will reflect advice & directives from the National Health expert panels,  Athletics Ireland & our Juvenile Committee.

Athletes, coaches, parents and volunteers must not come to the track if you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19, have had contact with someone who has presented the symptoms within the last 14 days or are otherwise unwell for any other reason. Please stay at home and follow the relevant government guidance.


Senior Training Times

Training covers a wide range of events and disciplines, suitable for beginner and elite athletes. We recognise that everybody can have different goals, so whether you want to compete or just try it out, get in contact and find a training session that might suit you. 

We have used runners’ 5K time to give an indication of the paces of the various groups so members can find the most suitable training sessions.

There are a majority of members who are involved in distance running so many of the organised training sessions are run with this in mind.
