The 10th Annual Mayo AC 5k Series of five races are scheduled for consecutive Tuesdays between May 21 and June 11, 2019 all starting at 8pm.
These no-frills evening races have proved to be a tremendous success in recent times, with numbers increasing year on year, and they are a great opportunity to achieve personal goals in a relaxed environment. Over the years many have taken their first steps in the five race series, or incorporated them as an ideal training measure on different courses to assess progress.
The series also serves as a major fundraiser for the club, and make for a very enjoyable way to get out and about around the county!
