SERIES BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION

The Annual Mayo AC 5k Series of races are usually scheduled on consecutive Tuesdays, in May or early June starting at 8pm. .

The Series serves as a major fundraiser for the club.

These ‘no frills’ evening races have proved to be a tremendous success in recent times with numbers increasing year on year, and are a great opportunity to achieve personal goals in a relaxed environment.

The 5k Series was set up originally as to try to encourage beginners to participate in road races.

 

Following the introduction of Fit4Life nationally in 2008, the Mayo AC series was developed to encourage those new to running to participate in road races.

The series emphasis has always been on the less ‘elite’ of the running community.

We’ve tried to maintain the casual element to the set up to make the whole experience suitable to all runners regardless of ability

 They take place at various locations around the county – in recent times at  Ballyhaunis (Rugby Club), Claremorris (Athletics Track), Ballinrobe (Soccer Club), Castlebar and Foxford (Leisure Centre) and are  be followed by a Series After Party and prizegiving after the final race.

The race order for 2023 is in the poster above.

All courses are officially measured, well marshaled, with chip timing and a finish line time clock.

Members are strongly encouraged to compete. All welcome!

You can register online in advance or on the evening of each race  from 6:30pm each Tuesday. Entry for the whole series is at a special price or you can enter each race separately.

Prizes are  presented at final race After Party.
