Fuchsia leggins, big yellow sunglasses, big hair decorated with colorful hairbands…a bit too tacky? Think that it’ll be only for a bit of fun for this year’s Roundstone Bay 8km. “Retro running” is the theme for the 2013 race, so leave your shyness at home and let your imagination fly…or run, in this case.

The categories will be classified as follows:

  • 1st, 2nd and 3rd Male Overall
  • 1st, 2nd and 3rd Female Overall
  • 1st Male Over 40, Over 50 and Over 60
  • 1st Female Over 40, Over 50 and Over 60
  • Top GAA team (First 4 runners times from each club will score)

Not only the race will take place; there’ll be a DJ before and after the race and also later on in the evening the band Silver Circus will be playing classic hits from now and always at the Shamrock Bar , or if you’d rather prefer some trad music in any of the local pubs you won’t have to walk too much as they’re fairly close to each other so you won’t have to suffer if you’re in your night out high heels.

And now the best part…Roundstone is a beautiful village in the coast of Connemara, belongs to County Galway and it’s about 77km north-west of Galway city. If the luck is over this side of the country and the sun shines you’ll be amazed of the breathtaking scenery around you. Walk around the seaside contemplating the turquoise beach (i mean it) is such a pleasure that it would be a shame not to give it a chance to drive up to this secret pearl of the Irish west coast…and maybe go for a deep in these georgeus waters before taking a stroll around the pictoresque village.

Roundstone is a little paradise…you won’t be dissapointed!

Start Time for the race is 1.00pm on Saturday 18th May 2013.

Registration is €20
